Bone Cancer Treatment at World Class Cancer Hospitals in India

Bone Cancer Treatment Bone cancer is a malignant (cancerous) tumor of the bone that destroys normal bone tissue. Not all bone tumors are malignant. In fact, benign (noncancerous) 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.

Types of Bone Cancer

There are Three Types of Bone Cancer :
Bone Cancer Treatment • Osteosarcoma : Osteosarcoma is the most common type of primary bone cancer . This cancer affects primarily children and young adults between the ages of 10 and 25. Osteosarcoma often starts in the ends of bones, where new tissue forms as children grow. It arises most often in the knee.
• Chondrosarcoma : Chondrosarcomas, one of the most common types of bone cancer in adults over age 50, form in cartilage — usually around the pelvis, knee, shoulders, or upper part of the thighs.

• Ewing’s Sarcoma : Ewing’s sarcoma occurs most often in the middle part of bones, arising most often in the hip, ribs, upper arm, and thighbones. Like osteosarcoma, this cancer affects primarily children and young adults between the ages of 10 and 25.


Diagnosis of Bone Cancer

    Bone Cancer Treatment

  • 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.
    • Bone Scan
    • CT or CAT scan
    • MRI
    • PET
  • 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 active—when 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.

Bone Cancer Treatment 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.

Bone Cancer Treatment 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.
  • To Alleviate Symptoms : Radiotherapy is often used to relieve pain in more advanced cancers.
  • 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.

What People say about usI can’t begin to tell you how much I appreciate everything you and all of your coworkers have done for use. To know that someone would be there to meet us at the end of our long trip and we didn’t have to worry about anything. We got to the hospital late and were taken directly to our rooms to rest. From that moment on we were treated like God.

The hospital was so clean, everyone always smiles, and your not just a number. The professionalism was out of this world. When we left We all agreed that if we ever had to do this again, we would be back in a heartbeat! Leaving the Hospital pulled at our heartstrings because the nurses and doctors became our friends!
