Other Bone Tumors

Tumors often start in the bone marrow, the soft tissue in the center of the bones where new cells are made. The most common of these tumors are multiple myeloma and lymphoma. These tumors can grow and destroy the bone, leading to fractures (broken bones). 

These tumors are usually treated with chemotherapy, radiation or both. However, if a bone breaks or becomes very weak, you may need surgery to repair it.

Metastatic bone tumors are tumors that start in other parts of the body and spread to the bones. The most common metastatic bone tumors come from breast, lung, prostate, kidney and thyroid cancers. 

The best treatment for you depends on the type of tumor you have. Our multidisciplinary team of specialists will work with you to develop a personalized treatment plan. Although chemotherapy is the main treatment, radiation therapy and surgery are often necessary.
