Bone Cancer

Common Name(s)

Bone Cancer

Bone cancer is a common form of cancer characterized by abnormal cell growth in the skeletal system. Individuals with this disorder may grow harmful tumors in the bone that can spread to the rest of the body if not diagnosed and treated early. Bones are important for maintaining the structure of the body and work closely with muscles to provide various movements. Bone cancer can thus cause individuals to be less capable of performing important movements, like walking and running. Doctors are usually able to diagnose this defect early in the abnormal growth process, as the resulting symptoms are quickly apparent. Treatment is developed on a case-by-case basis and depends on the specific needs of the patient. For prevention purposes, bone specialists may suggest individuals eat a high-calcium diet, and exercise regularly. If an individual's cancer has progressed, doctors may suggest chemotherapy to combat cancer symptoms.

Medication-related osteonecrosis of the jaw: Prevention, diagnosis and management in patients with cancer and bone metastases.
 

Author(s): Sven Otto, Christoph Pautke, Tim Van den Wyngaert, Daniela Niepel, Morten SchiĆødt

Journal: Cancer Treat. Rev.. 2018 Sep;69():177-187.

 

Medication-related osteonecrosis of the jaw (MRONJ) is primarily an adverse side effect of denosumab or bisphosphonates (particularly when used at high doses to prevent skeletal-related events [SREs] in patients with cancer and bone metastases) or possibly anti-angiogenic cancer treatment. ...

Author(s): Aimee R Hayes, Daniel Brungs, Nick Pavlakis

Journal:

 

In advanced prostate cancer, osteoclast inhibitors prevent and palliate skeletal related events associated with bone metastases. However, it is uncertain whether they play a disease-modifying role earlier in the course of the disease.
