What is Bone Cancer?
Bone cancer (also called Osteosarcoma), accounts for about 0.2% of all cancers. It is rare disease and often emerges in long bones of limbs. Variants arise from diverse cells and tissues. Originating from a single cell, it replaces healthy tissue, weakening bones. Although uncommon, some are highly aggressive and life-threatening. Early detection and treatment are key. Osteosarcoma, primarily in under-20s, is most prevalent.
What are the various types of Bone Cancers?
Bone Cancer is categorized into two main types based on its origin:
Primary Bone Cancer, which originates within the bone itself.
Secondary Bone Cancer, where cancer develops in another part of the body and spreads to the bone through the bloodstream, a process known as metastasis. Secondary bone cancer is more common than primary bone cancer
What are the varied symptoms of Bone Cancer, influenced by factors like Cancer stage and tissue involvement?
Recognizing Bone Cancer involves considering various factors like cancer stage and tissue involvement, leading to diverse symptoms. Common indicators encompass:
Unrelenting bone pain intensifying over time
Unexplained swelling, inflammation, and tenderness
Pain unresponsive to medication
Visible bone lump
Brittle or weak bones. If any such signs persist, seeking medical evaluation is essential.
What are the contributing factors to Bone Cancer development?
The precise cause of bone cancer remains elusive; however, experts associate it with genetic alterations that prompt uncontrolled cell multiplication. Over time, these cells replace healthy ones, leading to tumour development. Factors contributing to these genetic changes encompass:
Exposure to harmful radiation
Presence of Paget’s disease
Personal history of cancer
Family history of bone cancer
Rare genetic conditions such as Li-Fraumeni syndrome
What are the various diagnostic techniques used to identify Bone Cancer?
There are various diagnostic methods available for the identification of Bone Cancer, encompassing:
Implementation of needle or surgical biopsy procedures
Conducting radionuclide bone scans to detect abnormalities
Utilizing X-ray imaging to capture bone structures
Employing magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) for detailed visualization• Performing computed tomography (CT) scans to produce cross-sectional images
Utilizing positron emission tomography (PET) scans to assess metabolic activity
What are the common treatment options available for patients with Bone Cancer at IBS Hospital?
For individuals diagnosed with Bone Cancer, a range of treatment options is at hand, including:
Surgical intervention aimed at the removal of the tumor and adjacent tissues
Adoption of limb-sparing surgical procedures to conserve affected limbs
Consideration of limb amputation as a therapeutic approach
Implementation of reconstructive surgery to restore form and function
Administration of chemotherapy for systemic cancer control
Application of radiation therapy to target cancerous cells
Utilization of targeted therapy to specifically address cancer cells while sparing healthy ones
