Bone tumours

Bone tumors develop when cells within a bone divide uncontrollably, developing a lump or mass of abnormal tissue.

Most bone tumors are not cancerous (benign). Benign tumors are usually not life-threatening and, in most cases, will not spread to additional parts of the body. Depending upon the type of tumor, treatment options are wide-ranging—from simple observation to surgery to eliminate the tumor.

Some bone tumors are cancerous (malignant). Malignant bone tumors can metastasize—or cause cancer cells to spread all over the body. In almost all cases, treatment for malignant tumors involves a combination of chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery.

Types of cancer that begin elsewhere and commonly spread to bone include:

  • Breast
  • Lung
  • Thyroid
  • Renal
  • Prostate

 

  • Benign tumours
  • Osteoclastoma
  • Primary malignant tumors
  • Uncommon malignant tumours
  • Metastasis in bone
  • Tumour like conditions of bone
  • Osteochondroma
  • Aneurysmal bone cyst
  • Fibrous dysplasia
