Bone cancer

Bone cancer occurs when cells in your bones or connective tissues grow in an abnormal and uncontrolled way, forming a tumour.

How is it diagnosed?

Signs or bone cancer can include swelling, stiffness or pain in the affected area. You may also experience a bone fracture. Bone cancer can be detected through blood tests, scans such as X-rays or MRI scans, and/or a biopsy from the affected area.

How is it treated?

Treatment for blood cancers may involve surgery to remove a tumour, and chemotherapy or other targeted drug therapy and/or radiotherapy to destroy cancer cells.
