Tumors that grow in bones and be malignant (cancerous) or benign (not cancerous), and metastatic tumors (tumors that develop from cancer cells that formed elsewhere in the body and then spread to the bone).
Both types of primary bone tumors may grow and compress healthy bone tissue, but benign tumors usually do not spread or destroy bone tissue and are rarely a threat to life.
Surgery is often the primary treatment for bone cancer. When operating to remove bone tumors, our surgeons remove some of the surrounding bone and muscle to be sure they are eliminating as much cancerous tissue as possible.
Radiotherapy is a cancer treatment uses high doses of radiation to kill cancer cells and shrink tumors. It involves the use of beams of high-energy X-rays or particles (radiation) to destroy cancer cells.
Most primary bone cancers are in the arms or legs. Limb sparing surgery is the main operation for these cancers. This means removing the cancer without removing the affected arm or leg. The surgeon removes the area of bone containing the cancer and may replace it with a metal implant or a bone either from another part of the body or from a bone bank.
Cryosurgery is a type of surgery that involves the use of extreme cold to destroy abnormal tissues, such as tumors. For external tumors, liquid nitrogen is applied directly to the cancer cells with a cotton swab or spraying device. For internal tumors, liquid nitrogen is circulated through a hollow instrument called a cryoprobe, which is placed in contact with the tumor.
