10 Symptoms and Treatments For Bone Cancer


Approximately 3,010 adults will be diagnosed with bone cancer this year. More than 1,400 will die from the disease.  There are several types of bone cancer. However, primary bone cancer, which results when a tumor grows inside a bone, and secondary bone cancer, which is caused when cancer cells spread from another part of the body into the adjacent bones are the most prevalent.

The most unfortunate aspect of bone cancer, or any type of cancer, is that patients often don’t realize there is an issue until it’s too late. Don’t be a statistic! Don’t ignore these telltale symptoms of bone cancer…

1. Bone pain

Chronic pain is common to those with bone cancer. Ongoing pain can result from the cancer tumor—either emanating from inside the affected bone or joint, from the tumor pressing on a nearby organ or nerve, or pain as a result of cancer treatment (i.e., radiation or chemotherapy).
