Hi Anon!

Thanks for your post!

Typically occurring in adults between 20 and 40 years of age, giant cell tumors of the bone (GCT) is a rare, yet aggressive, non-cancerous tumor. GCT is hardly ever seen in children or in adults past the age of 65. These tumors occur in about one person per million each year.

GCTs are named for the way they appear under a microscope. When viewed from this vantage point, a plethora of “giant cells” is visible, formed by the fusion of many individual cells into a single, larger one.

Anon, you and your sister can real all about GCT's in the following article, including treatment options. Please open it here: http://www.empowher.com/bones-amp-joints/content/what-giant-cell-tumor
