You have Options For Your Cancer Treatment
A diagnosis of bone cancer refers to a the growth of a cancerous tumor in the bones. The most common symptom of bone cancer is pain, however many patients will not experience any symptoms except for a painless mass. If there is a tumor in the bone, it is possible that the bone structure will be weakened leading to pathologic fractures.
2 Categories of Bone Cancer:
Primary Tumors – These can be divided into benign tumors and cancerous tumors. Types of benign bone tumors include neoplastic, infections, inflammatory and developmental in etiology. Examples of benign tumors includes osteochondroma, osteoma, bone cyst and fibrous dysplasia. Malignant primary bone tumors include, osteosarcoma, chondrosarcoma, Ewing’s sarcoma as well as other sarcoma types. Multiple myeloma is a cancer of the blood that can also be found in one or more bones.
Secondary Tumors – These are tumors that originate in other organs of the body and then spread (metastasize) to the bones. Most common primary tumors that spread to bone are breast, lung and prostate cancers. These tumors are most frequently found located in the axial skeleton (spine) rather than the peripheral bones. Tumors which originate in the soft tissues may also involve bones through direct invasion.
Primary cancers of the bones account for less that 1% percent of all cancers. Osteosarcoma is the most common primary bone cancer, followed by chondrosarcoma, Ewing’s tumor, chordoma and malignant fibrous histiocytoma/fibrosarcoma.
The prognosis for patients with primary bone cancer varies and depends on the type and stage of the cancer.
