In the last few years is the most effective way of combating cancer remains chemotherapy. It is capable to cure not only the primary tumor but also metastasis, including distant. For each type of cancer has its own treatment regimens using various chemotherapeutic agents and their combinations. Lack of treatment is a large number of side effects, so this therapy is usually performed in a hospital under the supervision of experts. In most cases, in order to defeat the tumor and metastases, a single course of chemotherapy is not enough, so the patient must tune in to the complex and lengthy treatment. After study shows the lack of tumor nodes and the doctor says remission, there are additional courses of maintenance chemotherapy.

If metastases are located in areas accessible to the surgeon, offer the patient their radical removal. This type of treatment is suitable in the presence of large tumor foci. With the defeat of a large number of lymph nodes or bone marrow surgeons to not help. Very often in the presence of large metastases doctors perform preoperative chemotherapy. It helps to reduce malignant nodes and make the operation less traumatic for the patient.

Radiation therapy is used to treat primary tumors and metastases that cannot be surgically removed. This type of cancer is not as heavy to carry as chemotherapy. And the effect of treatment in some cases is even more pronounced.

But it is not necessary to consider these methods as a priority. Patients who refuse traditional treatment difficult, often poorly done. Therefore, resort to herbal treatment and the various plots is possible only when classical medicine does not leave you a chance.

Advice 2: Is it possible to cure bone cancer

The name "bone cancer" as used in everyday life, is not quite correct. Cancer (carcinoma) is a malignant tumor of epithelial tissue. To malignant neoplasm of the skeletal system uses a different term – sarcoma.

Malignant neoplasms are more common in people under 30 years of age. In older people they usually represent metastases of tumors of other organs.

Malignant tumors of bone and cartilage



The most common malignant tumor of bone – osteosarcoma. Most often it occurs in people 10 to 30 years, at least – in the elderly, and very rare in middle-age. This tumor affects the bones of the pelvis and extremities.

Chondrosarcoma – a tumor of cartilage tissue, occurring on the bones of the pelvis, extremities, rarely on the ribs, and sometimes the result of the degeneration of benign tumors. The disease risk increases after 20 years.

Ewing's sarcoma affects the bones of the hands and feet, often found in children and adolescents after the age of 30 is diagnosed very rarely.

Chordoma is formed in the spine or in the skull base.

The main symptom of any malignant bone tumors is pain, gradually growing with the growth of the tumor. At an early stage the pain is felt either at night or with activity.

Less common other symptoms: profuse sweating at night, weight loss, chills. The tumor bones become more fragile, even a minor injury, easily lead to fractures.

Treatment of bone sarcomas



The treatment begins with an accurate diagnosis. The main method of diagnosis in these diseases x-ray examination. To clarify the diagnosis applies a bone scan, needle aspiration or open biopsy in which a doctor under local or General anesthesia takes a sample of the suspicious tissue, and examined under a microscope in search of cancer cells. Also used ultrasound and computed tomography.

The main methods of treatment of sarcoma – radiation therapy, chemotherapy and surgery. Which method is chosen depends on the nature of the tumor, the stage of the disease. Perhaps a combination of several methods.

Not so long ago, when bone sarcoma is the only method of surgical treatment was amputation of the affected limb, but now in most cases it is possible to do without it. The tumor was removed together with adjacent healthy tissue and to repair damaged bones used transplantation of tissue or bone cement.

Before surgery chemotherapy and radiation therapy. Both methods reduce the size of the tumor. After the surgery using these methods destroy any remaining cancer cells.

Some patients are pessimistic in assessing their perspectives of sarcoma of the bone, and even believe that "it makes no sense to treat an incurable illness. Meanwhile, the prognosis of malignant tumors of skeletal system are quite good. The survival rate is 80%. Of course, we are talking about those patients who just went to the doctor and did not allow the pathological process to go too far.
