Comparing benign and malignant bone tumors


Comparing benign and malignant bone tumors

Overview of bone tumors:
Bone tumors can be classified as benign and malignant bone tumors and are considered to be abnormal cell growths that take place within the bone tissues. Among these, malignant bone tumors would again be classified as ‘primary’ and ‘secondary’ lesions based on the site of origin. As such, the tumors that occur primarily in the bone would be considered as ‘primary tumors’ where as the cancers that get deposited from origins elsewhere in the body are considered to be ‘secondary’ or metastatic cancers. Such deposits can be generated from tissues adjacent to the bone or else which are at a distance. Thus, the muscles, connective tissues, fat tissues, nerves, cartilage…etc as well as organs such as thyoid, lungs, prostate, breast…etc can be considered as origin sites of these secondary tumors……
