Bone cancer surgery is the only solution to get rid of cancer. Also, it is very important to get it done at its early stage as grows to advance level with time and it becomes difficult to be cured. There are mainly two types of bone cancer: Primary bone cancer and secondary bone cancer. Primary bone cancer refers to cancers which start in the bone. These are different to secondary bone cancers which started in other parts of the body and later spread to the bones. Bone cancers are tumours which have the potential to spread to other parts of the body. These are different to benign bone tumours which do not spread. Benign bone tumours are more common than malignant bone tumours. Secondary bone cancer is where malignant cells have spread to the bones from other parts of the body. This is different to cancer that actually started in the bones. Virtually all types of cancer can spread to bone. Bone metastases are particularly common in people with breast, lung or prostate cancer. Bone metastases are usually multiple, they cause pain and can lead to other symptoms such as hypocalcaemia. Treatment for bone cancer will depend on the type of cancer, whether it has spread or not, and the size and location of the main tumour. Treatment of bone cancers is complex and involves a team of different specialists usually within an institution that is experienced in treating these types of cancers. There are 3 main types of therapy used to treat bone cancers; Surgery to take out the tumour in an operation, radiotherapy using high-dose x-rays to kill cancer cells and chemotherapy using drugs to kill cancer cells. Surgery is often used to remove the primary tumour. For tumours of the arms and legs an amputation of the limb is sometimes necessary, however, limb-sparing surgery may be possible in many cases where only the cancerous part of the bone is removed and it is replaced by a bone graft or metal prosthesis. Radiotherapy may be given as well as or instead of surgery to destroy the cancer cells.
