What is Bone Cancer?
Bone cancer is a malignant (cancerous) tumor of
the bone that destroys normal bone tissue. Not
all bone tumors are malignant. In fact, benign
(non-cancerous) bone tumors are more common than
malignant ones. Both malignant and benign bone
tumors may grow and compress healthy bone
tissue, but benign tumors do not spread, do not
destroy bone tissue, and are rarely a threat to
life. Malignant tumors that begin in bone tissue
are called primary bone cancer. Cancer that
metastasizes (spreads) to the bones from other
parts of the body, such as the breast, lung, or
prostate, is called metastatic cancer. The most
common symptom of bone cancer is pain, which is
caused either by the spread of the tumor or by
the breaking of bone that is weakened by a tumor.
Stiffness or tenderness in the bone may also
occur. Sometimes there are other symptoms, such
as fatigue, fever, swelling, and stumbling.

  • Diagnosis of Bone Cancer
  • X-rays  It can show the location, size, and
    shape of a bone tumor. If x-rays suggest that an
    abnormal area may be cancer, the doctor is likely
    to recommend special imaging tests.
  • Biopsy  A Sample of bone tissue is extracted
    and examined for cancer cells. This is the most
    reliable way to diagnose bone cancer. A core
    needle biopsy involves inserting a long, thin
    needle into the bone and removing a sample, while
    an open biopsy involves making an incision in the
    target bone area and surgically removing a sample
    of tissue.
  • Blood Tests  To Determine the level of an
    enzyme called alkaline phosphatase. A large
    amount of this enzyme is present in the blood
    when the cells that form bone tissue are very
    activewhen children are growing, when a broken
    bone is mending, or when a disease or tumor
    causes production of abnormal bone tissue.
    Because high levels of alkaline phosphatase are
    normal in growing children and adolescents.

Treatment of Bone Cancer at Top Cancer Hospitals
in India
  • Surgery  Surgery is used to remove the bone
    cancer itself.
  • When operating to remove bone tumors, surgeons
    remove
  • some of the surrounding bone and muscle to be
    sure that
  • they are removing as much cancerous tissue as
    possible. If
  • the operation is on an arm or leg, the surgeon
    will try , as
  • much as possible, to preserve the limb and
    maintain its
  • fnctionality. Sometimes the bone that is removed
    will be
  • replaced with bone from another part of the body,
    bone from the tissue bank or with an artificial
    replacement. 
  • Radiotherapy  Approximately 40 of patients of
    all
  • types of cancer undergo some kind of
    radiotherapy. It
  • involves the use of beams of high-energy X-rays
    or
  • particles (radiation) to destroy cancer cells.
    Radiotherapy
  • works by damaging the DNA inside the tumor cells,
  • destroying their ability to reproduce.
    Radiotherapy can
  • be used for different reasons 
  • Total Cure  To Cure the Patient by completely
    destroying the tumor.

  • Adjuvant Radiotherapy - Given After Surgery The
    Aim is to eliminate the cancer cells that
  • Chemotherapy  Chemotherapy is the use of
    anticancer drugs to kill cancer cells. Patients
    who have bone cancer usually receive a
    combination of anticancer drugs. However,
    chemotherapy is not currently used to treat
    chondrosarcoma. 
  • Cryosurgery  Cryosurgery is the use of liquid
    nitrogen to freeze and kill cancer cells. This
    technique can sometimes be used instead of
    conventional surgery to destroy the tumor.
