  Benign bone tumors often weaken bone and make patients vulnerable to pathological fractures [1]. Benign lytic bone lesions such as Simple Bone Cyst (SBC), Non-Ossifying Fibroma (NOF) and Fibrous Dysplasia (FD), etc. commonly affect the young people. These lesions, which are usually asymptomatic, are stabilized or usually disappear after skeletal maturaty. Therefore, surgical operation is generally now not required until the size of the lesion is prone to pathological fractures, in which case curettage and grafting are the widespread treatment [2].
