Orthopedic cancer occurs when a cancerous mass in the musculoskeletal system starts to destroy healthy bone. Bone cancer can begin in the bone tissue or metastasize there, meaning the cancer originated elsewhere and spread to other areas of the body. Doctors can diagnose a patient with the following examinations: X-rays, Bone scans, CT Scans, MRIs, PET Scans, Angiograms, Blood tests, and Biopsies. Pain and unusual swelling are the common symptoms of bone cancer and seeking an experienced oncologist right away to determine your condition before it spreads is critical. Contact IBJI for an accurate diagnosis and a healthy tomorrow.
