Tumors of the bone are caused by abnormal cell growth and can be cancerous or benign. Sometimes cancers originate in other parts of the body and metastasize (or spread)
to the bone. Symptoms of bone cancer include bone pain, chronic pain in joints or limbs,
and brittle bones that fracture with little or no stress. In some cases, a lump may be noticeable.
Treatments for bone cancer include chemotherapy and radiation.
In addition, surgery is sometimes required and involves removal of the tumor and surrounding tissue. If bone is removed, it is replaced with a donor bone or prosthesis.
Orthopedic disorders cover the gamut from tendons, bones to ligaments and back again.
Keep your skeletal system functioning and in good healthy by eating right and exercising. Drink
plenty of milk or fruits fortified with vitamin D. Take care of your orthopedic requirements to ensure that you are able to run around and throw a
baseball to kids in the park
