Conservative or non-surgical treatment of benign bone cysts is dependent on the type of cyst involved.

A simple or unicameral bone cyst, for example, may heal spontaneously. Conversely, only a small minority of aneurysmal bone cysts heal on their own. Non-surgical treatment simply consists of observation and may include casting for immobilization if painful or if a fracture is present.

Ask your physician which treatment options are appropriate for you or your child.
