Others are "blastic" such as breast, prostate, etc. Symptoms vary from asymptomatic to painful. Bones may easily (pathologically) fracture. Treatment can include bone directed therapy such as bisphosphonates, xgeva (denosumab), radiation, radio frequency ablation, v-plasty. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Depends on type: Bone tumors for the most part fall into primary and metastatic lesions. For the metastatic lesions of lung prognosis is poor. For breast Ca there are long term survivals. Of the primary lesions there are benign and malignant lesions. The benign like enchondromas grow slowly and may have some pain. The malignant lesions such as osteo and chondrosarcomas can destroy the bone and metastasize . ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Laparotomy should be used and depending on path, chemo may be needed PO. ...Read more

Radiation and chemo are best used to control symptoms. ...Read more
