Your reading is no substitute for doctors' knowledge and experience. Stop reading and get biopsy done as advised by your urologist. Raised psa is a dangerous sign. Don't ignore it. It could be cancer. Luckily, prostate cancer is a curable disease if detected in time.

Bone Cancer - 5 Symptoms Of It!

Bone Cancer - 5 Symptoms Of 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 swelling: The area affected by bone cancer can grow big and tender or the bone itself can swell up. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an Orthopedist.

Helo doctors. My mother was diagnosed with breast cancer stage 2 two months ago and she had surgery to remove one breast. Then they did some tests and she is advised to undergo further treatment chemo or radiation. How long is it safe for her to stay without starting the treatment?

Dear lybrate-user, The chemo and/or radiation should be started once she is fit. Usually we keep an interval between 2 to 4 weeks from surgery to start the further treatment. Further delay can increase the chances of recurrence.

I am breastfeeding mother of 22 month old daughter. But feeds from left side only for few months as my right side breast produced less milk and nipple is small. Sometimes I have pain in my right breast. Is this a early sign of breast cancer? Please help.

Breastfeeding should be done from both sides equally otherwise painfull lump may form. So get examined by surgeon and mammography should be done.

Hello, Thanks for the query. It is necessary to get a detailed examination done from a competent surgeon. Plus a mammogram and if needed FNAC. These investigations will help in knowing what is the situation. Based on results of investigation further treatment can be decided. Thanks.

What are the reasons for getting cancer and what are it symptoms and prevention and treatment methods?

DNB, MBBS
Oncologist, Faridabad
Cancer is a disease which is caused by some abnormal mutations or change in genes leading to loss of control over few cells and they become autonomous and uncontrolled. They start growing in number and become huge. It may present as lump, ulceration, abnormal bleeding, weight loss, fever, altered bowel habits etc. One has to avoid any kind of carcinogenic substance, tobacco, radiation exposure, pollution, pesticides etc and go for regular health screening.

What are the symptoms of the cancer. And what kind of medical tests should be done? What kind of treatment should have to take?

MBBS, MD - Medicine, MD - Oncology
Oncologist, Delhi
Dear lybrate user, symptoms of cancer are varied, depending upon the organ or the site involved and also upon the stage of the disease. Early cancer may be symptomless and may be diagnosed by coincidence. When the cancer is symptomatic it is possibly in advanced stage. Treatment will also depend on the type and stage of cancer. Which may be either by surgery or radiotherapy or chemotherapy.

Respected doctor in ref to my earlier query the CT scan report shows that actually the cancer is in area of pancreas and from that place it struck to liver and doctors has told us that it is the last stage but the patient is taking proper diet and there is not a single sign of jaundice or fever but only patient is losing the weight as he loses 22 kg in one month is there any therapy or medicine by which we can enhance their life to some extent.

Yes, in this case there is a tendency of losing weight. He needs to consume high quality proteins or supplements also if necessary to compensate with daily protein requirement as their appetite reduces. Egg whites, soya or normal milk, nutty shakes, milk or paneer porridge etc help.
