For example, bone cancer that arises in the bone (primary bone cancer) is different from cancer that spreads to the bone from another part of the body (secondary bone cancer). Examples of secondary cancers that commonly spread to the bone include breast cancer, lung cancer, and prostate cancer. Treatment options for bone cancer include surgery, radiation therapy, and chemotherapy.
