Testing & Diagnosis for Non-Ossifying Fibroma in Children


How does a doctor know that it’s a non-ossifying fibroma

Diagnostic procedures for non-ossifying fibroma are used to determine the exact type of tumor your child has and whether the tumor has spread. These may include a: 

  • physical exam, including neurologic function tests to measure your child’s reflexes, muscle strength, eye and mouth movement, coordination and alertness
  • x-rays to produce images of internal tissues, bones and organs onto film
  • computerized tomography scan (also called a CT or CAT scan) to capture a detailed view of the body
