This cancer can start in any bone in the body and mostly long bones are affected that make up the legs and arms. Many bone tumors are benign that means they are non-cancerous and does not spread to any part of the body. Normal bone tissue is destroyed by this cancer and can spread to different body parts (known as metastasis). Bone Cancer/Bone Tumor Treatment in India As a whole, bone cancer is categorized based on whether the cancer originated in the bone (primary) or whether it spread from another location to the bone (secondary). Secondary bone cancer, or cancer that has spread to the bone from another part of the body, is much more common than primary bone cancer.

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 is.

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. Types of biopsy procedures used to diagnose bone cancer include:

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 limb-sparing surgery.
  6. 6. Call Us : +91-9811058159 Mail Us : 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 or can also be replaced with the help of special metal prosthesis. 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. Radiation Therapy : High-powered beams of energy are used in this therapy for destroying cancer cells. The high-powered beams of energy are targeted at precise points in the body. This therapy is meant for those people who are suffering from bone cancer that cannot be removed with the help of surgery.
