What Is Bone Cancer And How Ayurveda Will Help You To Vanquish It

You are made up of cells that divide and increase on a daily basis. Cells generally die when they become dysfunctional or old. Cancer occurs when something starts to go wrong in this cycle, causing your cells to keep producing new cells while the old or malfunctioning ones do not die as they should. When cancer cells proliferate uncontrollably, they might push out normal cells. This impairs your body's ability to function normally. Cancer can develop from any part of your body, some parts are the commonest, some the rarest.

Bone cancer is a relatively rare kind of cancer. Most of the time, cancer does not originate in the bones; instead, it spreads from other regions of the body, such as the breast, lungs, or prostate, and is termed secondary breast CA. Cancer cells extracted from the bone might resemble the organ from which they came. Bone tumors don't have to be malignant all of the time. It may be a benign growth, which happens around half of the time. When cancer arises from the bone itself, it is referred to as primary bone cancer.

Bone Cancer


  • Osteosarcoma - This is the commonest type of bone cancer. The cells resemble early forms of bone-forming cells. It is most prevalent in teenagers but it can show up in any age group.
  • Chondrosarcoma - Second most common bone cancer. arises from cartilage cells, it rarely affects people below 20 years, and the risk of developing this cancer increase with age
  • Ewing sarcoma - Third most common type of bone cancer. It can arise from bone tissue or soft tissues around the bones. Most prevalent in children and teenagers, rarely seen in adults above their 30s.
  • Fibrosarcoma - Arises from soft tissues around the bone such as ligaments, tendons, or muscles. Most prevalent in older adults on their arms, legs, and jaw.
  • Chordoma - Cancer affecting spine and skull, more prevalent in adults above 30 years of old, particularly men. Cancer is slow-growing. It can eventually spread into the lungs, liver, and lymph nodes.


The majority of bone malignancies have no known cause. But possible causes can be;

  • Family history of bone cancer
  • Radiation exposure from imaging tests or radiation therapy for cancer
  • Certain rare genetic diseases (example: Li-Fraumeni syndrome, hereditary retinoblastoma)
  • Other diseases like Paget's disease of bone


  • The major symptom is the pain in the tumor's vicinity; however, this will not be persistent discomfort, as tumor growth pain may be continuous. Walking, lifting weights, and other activities that involve the usage of the bone might cause pain. Swelling in the area of the tumor
  • If the tumor is near a joint, then there will be joint pain, swelling, and stiffness
  • Limping due to bone pain or fracture
  • Weight loss, fever, anemia can also be present.


  • Imaging tests like x-ray, PET Scan, CT, MRI, etc.
  • Needle or surgical biopsies.


Treatment of bone cancer depends upon its type and stage which will be determined by your doctor. After the diagnosis, treatments suggested can be;

  • Chemotherapy
  • Radiation therapy
  • Surgery

These treatments are used separately or together according to your condition.

  1. It can be used as an adjuvant with chemotherapy to lessen the adverse effects and lower the dose of medication while still providing the same benefits.
