We recently were granted permission to add some fantastic specimens from York Archaeological Trust. This specimen comes from St. Andrew’s Fishergate and is now on display at Barley Hall, York (http://barleyhall.co.uk/). The mass on the right is fantastic example of how large osteomata, which are benign neoplasms, can get.
There is a large lobulated mass of compact bone on the right ascending ramus. The mass measures c. 56.4mm superoinferior x c. 42.1mm anteroposterior x c. 30mm mediolateral. The medial surface of the assenting ramis is heavily pitted.
