  • What benefits can I expect from this approach?
  • What are its risks?
  • Do the expected benefits outweigh the risks?
  • What side effects should I watch for?
  • Will this alternative treatment change the way my bone cancer treatment works?
  • Could this alternative treatment be harmful?
  • Is this approach under study in a bone cancer clinical trial? If so, who sponsors the trial?
  • Will my health insurance pay for this approach?
