Specializes in Pathology

You won't find an environmental cause for any bone cancer apart from the rare ones that arise in pre-existing severe Paget's of bone, rare genetic syndromes or an old radiation port. Recently the news showcased what we pathologists have taught for decades -- the vast majority of cancers are the result of random mutations -- truly random. There's no way to prevent.
