Treatment For Bone Cancer?
I was told by the docter on amputation. Is there no other way but amputation?
Hello Al Chaidir,
Tumor or bone cancer is a change in normal cells that occurs in bone so that bone cells grow uncontrollably and can cause enlargement, protrusions, or tumors in the bone. The cause itself can be triggered by various factors such as genetics, injury, and radiation exposure.
There are various types of bone tumors, in addition to being benign, there are also malignant bone tumors where the growth is aggressive and invasive of other healthy cells so that it requires more treatment to prevent it from spreading, spreading or affecting other parts of the body that can be dangerous. One of them is surgery such as removing the tumor or amputation to remove the bone and tissue that contains the tumor cells. After that it can be continued with radiation therapy and chemotherapy.
Several types of bone cancer include chondrosarcoma, osteosarcoma, or Ewing's sarcoma tumors that can occur in adolescence or in the elderly. For this reason, if you have been diagnosed by a doctor, you can ask for a second opinion from an orthopedist or an oncologist to check the condition you are experiencing and further treatment according to the light weight and type of tumor experienced by you.
