In brief: Scans, Symptoms
Sometimes pet and bone scan find things otherwise not suspected, but many times a bone hurts, and occasionally, a bone breaks with trivial trauma and is found to be caused by cancer (pathologic fracture).
We search for the site of origin to determine treatment.

In brief: Bone cancer
Primary bone cancer is less common than metastatic disease to the bone.
Generally speaking, bone mass or lesion can be seen with the help of certain imaging such as ct scan or MRI or bone scan. Then a ct guided biopsy can be performed to the suspicious area/ to the bone mass to establish diagnosis of cancer.
