Bone Tumors Surgery

How do they remove a bone tumor?
Generally the tumor is removed using surgery. Often radiation therapy is used in combination with surgery. Limb salvage surgery removes the cancerous section of bone but keeps nearby muscles, tendons, nerves and blood vessels. If possible, the surgeon will take out the tumor and a margin of healthy tissue around it.
Are bone tumors dangerous?
Most bone tumors are benign (not cancerous). Benign tumors are usually not life-threatening and, in most cases, will not spread to other parts of the body. Depending upon the type of tumor, treatment options are wide-ranging—from simple observation to surgery to remove the tumor.
What are Symptoms of bone tumor?
Patients with a bone tumor will often experience pain in the area of the tumor. This pain is generally described as dull and aching. It may worsen at night and increase with activity.
Other symptoms of a bone tumor can include fever and night sweats.
Many patients will not have any symptoms, but will note a painless mass instead.
