Bone Cancer Information
When cancer cells form in the tissues of the bone, this is known as bone cancer. Any cancer diagnosis can be a shock, so it's a good idea to get as much information about this disease as possible. The causes of bone cancer aren't clearly understood; however, risk factors associated with the disease include a history of Paget's disease, previous radiation, or previous chemotherapy.
Pain is the most common symptom of bone cancer, but symptoms can vary from person to person, depending on the location and size of the cancer. Treatment options include chemotherapy, radiation therapy, or surgery. Your specific plan will depend on the type and stage of the cancer, among other things.
