1. DIRECT EXTENSION AND EXPANSION As the growing neoplasm extends eccentrically from its initial focus, it must either displace these tissues or penetrate them. Slow-growing lesions will displace bone in such a way that the cortical shell will continually remodel, maintaining the mass within. These expansile lesions are usually benign or at least low grade. High-grade malignancies grow too rapidly for the damaged tissues to respond, pushing through vascular channels in the cortex to escape the bone barrier before it can react.

Macklis, and E. C. , Totowa, NJ 25 26 MCLAIN grade lesions will continue to expand locally for some time before metastasizing (or at least before metastases can be detected). In these tumors the expanding front of the neoplasm continues to stretch and compress the surrounding soft tissue and muscle layers into a dense and fibrous pseudocapsule, the last barrier between the tumor and the visceral cavities. The pseudocapsule appears tough and resistant to penetration on a gross level, but is really only a distortion of much looser and more easily transgressed tissues.
