What is a Bone Tumor?

When cells in a bone grow out of control, they produce a lump or mass of irregular tissue, which is known as a bone tumor.

Several types of bone tumors aren't deadly (not cancerous). It is extremely uncommon for benign tumors to become life-threatening or spread to other parts of the body, but it does happen.

Certain bone tumors can be dangerous (cancerous). Most of the time, people who have cancer get chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery for bone cancer treatment.

Understanding the different types of Bone Tumors:

All kinds of bone tumors are not cancerous. Most importantly, tumors that occur in the bone are benign. Here are a few types of cancerous and benign tumors,

The common warning signs of Bone Tumors can include:

  • A visible bulge or swelling.
  • Pain that grows over time may be severe. Even when you're relaxing, it may hurt.
  • Breaks or fractures caused by a developing bone tumor weaken the bones.
  • Shooting pain in the bone
  • Swelling and discomfort in the injured area
  • Fractured bone due to weakened bone
  • Fatigue
  • Quick weight loss

Diagnosis of the Bone Tumor :

Not all tumors are cancerous; it is important to undergo a proper diagnosis to identify if it is a cancerous tumor. Diagnosing at the right time can avoid high complications. Few major diagnostic tests include,

Treatment options to treat Bone Tumors:

Surgical options : Surgically treating benign bone tumors entails removing the tumor and encouraging the formation of new healthy bone at the tumor location. The surgeon's bone cancer treatment should remove them with as little harm to the surrounding normal bone structure as possible.

Medical Surgery for malignant tumor : Surgery for metastatic bone cancer treatment, in most situations, includes removing the tumor in one piece, along with a tiny amount of good tissue surrounding it. The surgeon replaces the missing bone with bone from another location of your body, bone from a bone bank, or metal and hard plastic.

Limb salvage surgery : The cancerous bone is removed, but the surrounding muscles, tendons, nerves, and blood vessels are preserved as much as possible. The tumor and a portion of healthy tissue surrounding it will be removed by the surgeon.

Radiation therapy : Radiation is frequently used in conjunction with surgery. High-dose X-rays are used to shrink tumors and kill cancer cells before surgery. Radiation can also help to relieve pain and lower the risk of bone fractures.
