    • Call Us : +91-9811058159 Mail Us : care@medworldindia.com Bone Tumor A tumor is a lump or mass of tissue that forms when cells divide uncontrollably. A growing tumor may replace healthy tissue with abnormal tissue. It may weaken the bone, causing it to break (fracture). Most bone tumors are noncancerous (benign). Some are cancerous (malignant).Benign tumors are usually not life-threatening. Malignant tumors can spread cancer cells throughout the body (metastasize). This happens via the blood or lymphatic system. www.medworldindia.com www.facebook.com/medworld.india
    • Call Us : +91-9811058159 Mail Us : care@medworldindia.com Symptoms Most patients with a bone tumor will experience pain in the area of the tumor. The pain is generally described as dull and achy. The pain may or may not get worse with activity. The pain often awakens the patient at night. Although tumors are not caused by trauma, occasionally injury can cause a tumor to start hurting. Injury can cause a bone that is already weakened by a tumor to break. This often leads to severe pain. Some tumors can cause fevers and night sweats. Many patients will not have any symptoms, but will instead note a painless mass. Occasionally, benign tumors may be discovered incidentally when X-rays are taken for other reasons, such as a sprained ankle or rotator cuff problem. www.medworldindia.com www.facebook.com/medworld.india

OPD Consultations X-ray Computerized tomography (CT) Bone scan Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) Positron Emission Tomography (PET) Biopsy - A sample of tissue (Biopsy) from the tumor is removed for laboratory testing. Testing is done to know whether the tissue is cancerous and, if so, what is the type of cancer. Testing may also reveal the cancer's grade, which helps oncologists to understand how aggressive the cancer www.medworldindia.com www.facebook.com/medworld.india
    • Call Us : +91-9811058159 Mail Us : care@medworldindia.com Types of biopsy procedures used to diagnose bone cancer include: Inserting a needle through skin and into a tumor. During a needle biopsy, surgical oncologist inserts a thin needle through the skin and guides it into the tumor. The needle is used to remove small pieces of tissue from the tumor. Surgery to remove a tissue sample for testing.During a surgical biopsy, surgical oncologist makes an incision through the skin and removes either the entire tumor (excisional biopsy) or a portion of the tumor (incision biopsy). Determining the type of biopsy patients need and the particulars of how it should be performed requires careful planning by the oncology team. Surgical Oncologists perform the biopsy in a way that will not interfere with future surgery to remove bone cancer. www.medworldindia.com www.facebook.com/medworld.india
    • Call Us : +91-9811058159 Mail Us : care@medworldindia.com Nonsurgical Treatment of Bone Cancer Benign Tumors In many cases, benign tumors just need to be watched. Some can be treated effectively with medication. Some benign tumors will disappear over time. This is particularly true for some benign tumors that occur in children. Malignant Tumors If you are diagnosed with a malignant bone tumor, you might want to get a second opinion to confirm it. If you have bone cancer, the treatment team may include several specialists. These may include an orthopaedic oncologist, a medical oncologist, a radiation oncologist, a radiologist, and a pathologist. Treatment goals include curing the cancer and preserving the function of the body. www.medworldindia.com www.facebook.com/medworld.india
    • Call Us : +91-9811058159 Mail Us : care@medworldindia.com Treatment options for Bone Cancer The best treatment is based on the type of bone cancer, the location of the cancer, how aggressive the cancer is, and whether or not the cancer has invaded surrounding or distant tissues (metastasized). There are three main types of treatment for bone cancer: surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy. These can be used either individually or combined with each other. Chemotherapy : This treatment makes use of certain chemicals for destroying cancer cells. This is usually given through a vein that travels in the entire body. Radiation therapy is often combined with chemotherapy for shrinking the cancer to a manageable size so as to enable a surgeon to carry out a limbsparing surgery. This therapy is used in those people who have bone cancer that has spread to different body parts. www.medworldindia.com www.facebook.com/medworld.india
    • Call Us : +91-9811058159 Mail Us : care@medworldindia.com Surgery : A surgery entirely removes the bone cancer. There are different types of surgery for treating bone cancer such as :Surgery for cancer that does not affect the limbs : The surgical procedure is performed for removing bone and some nearby tissue if the bone cancer takes place in the bones apart from legs and arms. This removed bone is then replaced with a part of bone from a different area of the body Surgery for removing the cancer while sparing the limb : The surgical procedure can be performed for removing the bone cancer while sparing the limb if the bone cancer can be separated from other tissue and nerves. The lost bone is then replaced with some other bone from a different area of the body or can also be replaced with the help of a special prosthesis. Surgery for removing a limb : The surgical procedure is required for removing a part or all part of a limb when the bone cancer is very large and is located on a complicated point on the bone. www.medworldindia.com www.facebook.com/medworld.india
