Bone Cancer - What Pushes You Closer To It?

Bone Cancer - What Pushes You Closer To It?

Cancer that originates in the bones of a human body is referred to as bone cancer. Any bone could come under the threat of this disease, but generally the longer bones of your body, so to say the bones of your limbs, are at a greater risk. 

A few factors that might push you an inch closer to bone cancer are:

  1. Genes could jinx your health: A few typical genetic syndromes could increase a person's chances of contracting bone cancer. These syndromes could have been active in any person belonging to your lineage. One such syndrome is Li-Fraumeni.
  2. Treatment for one kind of cancer can make you prone to some other kind: Radiation affects your bones adversely. A patient of breast cancer might be undergoing radiation therapy that further increases his or her risk of contracting bone cancer in future.  
  3. Paget's disease can have unfavorable implications: Paget's disease is a disease that affects elderly people. This condition, if left untreated, can turn into bone cancer at a later stage. 

Several symptoms of bone cancer can be found below:

  1. Sudden loss of weight: If you lose a considerable amount of weight in a few weeks time without having made any effort at all, you should probably be worried about the health of your bones. Bone cancer can result in sudden and unintentional weight loss
  2. Unexpected bone fracture or breakage: Cancer of the bones is known to gnaw at the strength of your bones. Weakened and diseased bones can break or get fractured very easily. An unexpected fracture should not be overlooked so as to prevent chances of anything more harmful.
  3. Long spans of unyielding exhaustion: Constant fatigue and sleepiness might be hinting at a more serious underlying problem. The bones in your body hold you together; cancerous bone cells can make you feel exhausted without much exertion as your bones lose their inherent potency.
  4. Persistent pain in the bones: Excruciating cramps or pangs of stinging pain in a person's bones either continuously or at odd hours, could be indicative of bone cancer. Such instances require the advice and guidance of an experienced oncologist.
  5. Bone swellingThe area affected by bone cancer can grow big and tender or the bone itself can swell up.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Could be just an inflammation, so take anti inflammatory drugs, if you feel better, it will subside, or else you will have to get a biopsy or ultra sound done for the same.

Unfortunately know. Surgery is the mainstay of treatment with or without adjuvant chemotherapy based on the stage. To reduce the pain and discomfort of open surgery, laparoscopy can be safely done in colon cancer. The recovery is faster and less painful

Dear sir, what kind of cancer you are suffering from and what is the site and stage. Radiation therapy is one of the modality to treat cancer so please continue your treatment as advised by oncologist. You can attach histopathology reports and imaging reports to guide you more about your disease and treatment.

Breast augmentation like silicon insertion are permanent or needs to be replaced over the period? Like 10 years to 12 years after insertion.

MD PHYSICIAN
General Physician, Delhi
Breast implant usually come with a guarantee of around ten to fifteen years, after which it might need a replaced. The current breast implant technology has been around for approximately thirty years, and a large number of women have had these implants for thirty years now and report no problem. In some cases, a revision is needed, especially if there have been complications, but so long as breast implants are looked after this may not be necessary. Regular follow up with your doctor needs to be done because silicon implant may shows sometime rupture silently without showing any symptoms and may cause infection, so need to be cautious about so.

Am I more at risk if my relatives have cancer and what do cancer stages and grades mean?

M.Ch - Surgical Oncology, MS - General Surgery, MBBS
Oncologist, Delhi
Having more first degree and second degree relatives affected with cancer does put you in a higher than average risk bracket, but it does not stand true for all variety of cancers. We need to work on you family tree and details of your relatives illnesses to be more appropriately caution and not unnecessarily worry you. Cancer grade implies the aggressiveness in the behaviour of the cancer and stage implies the risk of the disease spreading and chances of cure of the disease. The higher the stage and grade, the more bad it is.
