BENIGN BONE TUMOURS
80 % of them are not dangerous
We prefer to call them 'lesions' as many would not require treatment, but some of them may need simple day care procedures like a curettage, curopsy or Radiofrequency ablation. An extremely important step is to identify a benign bone tumour and rule out malignant ones. Most patients and family members get nervous when they hear the word 'tumour' and start googling which will give them so many options causing apprehension, confusion and loss of sleep to say the least.
SOFT TISSUE SARCOMA
Big lumps and bumps in Soft tissues
When someone notices lumps in extremities (thigh, calf, etc.) or even the abdomen (goes unnoticed most of the times), it needs attention. There are numerous types and subtypes and their behaviour can be very different when compared with one another. Most of them can be removed safely if presented early, without causing much damage to the surrounding normal structures.
MALIGNANT BONE TUMOURS
Osteosarcoma, Ewings and Chondrosarcoma to name a few common ones
These tumours have a standard set protocol-based approach for management. As we say ' It's urgent but not an emergency', they require careful evaluation and methodical workup without deviation. With a good plan one can expect a cure in about 70 % of individuals. First time, Right treatment is the only way towards the best outcome.
As we are progressing leaps and bound in oncological treatment, the surviouship of patients with different cancers and the chances of them spreading to the bone (metastasis) has also increased exponentially. They have to be addressed for having a good quality of life. Sometimes primary cancer (Eg: Prostate cancer) might not be that troublesome, but its metastasis to the pelvis may leave the person impaired, unable to walk or even paralysed for life if the spine is involved. Hence an impending problem should be identified and treated in metastatic cases.
