Osteosarcoma is often treated with a combination of therapies that can include surgery, chemotherapy and radiation therapy. Most patients with high grade tumors receive about three months of chemotherapy, known as neo-adjuvant therapy, before surgery.

Handsome and smartness has nothing to do with bone cancer. Positive family history and exposure to carcinogen has.

Bone cancer could be of various types. It may be due to some genetic alterations in some cases, but in most of them, there is no cause. There are various types of bone tumors. Osteoclastomas are locally recurrent tumors, osteochondromas or enchondromas are benign tumors. There could be cysts, which are benign. Metastasises are the most common tumours of the bone. They could be from prostate, lung, Breast, thyroid, kidney, urinary bladder, rarely head and neck cancers. There could be myeloma, plasmacytoma, which need chemotherapy or radiation. The osteosarcoma and Ewinga's tumor are chemosensitive tumors. Osteosarcoma needs surgery aswell. There are chondrosarcomas also. The treatment involves chemotherapy, radiation and surgery according to the type of tumour. Surgery involves limb preserving surgery, where modular prosthesis can be used. If neurovascular bundle is involved, then amputation would be required.

Patient on chemotherapy or targeted therapy can have all types of home based food only. But all food stuff should be fresh and cooked. Those who are on targeted therapy should not have grapes and ita juice.

Dear, if oncologist has told you that it is not related to cancer, he may be right because bone metastasis makes the disease as stage iv which is very advanced. I hope you have got pet scan done which will confirm if she has bone metastasis. I will recommend bone calcifying treatment for her which should give her relief.

This problem of absent menses is due to hormonal imbalance due to chemotherapy. If you any doubt that time for other diagnosis then get ultrasound of lower abdomen, thyroid profile and hormonal assay done.
