An osteochondroma is a formation of extra bone and cartilage that can develop in various parts of the body. In the shoulder, it most commonly occurs near the shoulder blade (scapula) but may also appear along the humerus. This non-cancerous tumor is often asymptomatic, or it may cause pain and discomfort as the surrounding muscle and soft tissue may catch or rub during activity.
