Bones are one of the main key parts of the skeletal system which is incredibly strong. Bones are literally the support system and it has the hard outer layer made from compact bone. The outer layer of bone is covered with tissue known as periosteum which is fibrous in nature. Most of our bones are flexible and covered with a soft tissue known as cartilage. The ligament and tissue both connect with each other to form a joint. In adults cartilages are mostly found towards the ends of a few bones. Some of the bones consist of marrow which is fatty tissue whereas some of them have blood forming cells. These cells then have RBCs, WBCs and platelets as well. These cells have the tendency to become cancerous and result in bone cancer. Here in this article we are going to discuss ayurvedic treatment for bone cancer.

Bone Cancer


Bone cancer is seen when a tumor also called a type of atypical mass of tissue starts to grow on bones and is called bone sarcoma. It might also spread to other parts of the body if being malignant and is considered cancerous. This type of cancer can be seen in any bone of our body but is mostly commonly seen in long bones including legs as well as arms and also in pelvis.

Here it is to be noted that the term Bone Cancer does not define that the cancer has started from another part of the body and has metastasized to the bone. In fact, those types of cancer have started from the part like lung cancer which has metastasised to the bones.

There are few types of bone cancer that are commonly seen in children while some of them are seen in adults. One of the most common treatments for bone cancer is surgically removing the area and doing chemotherapy. There are different types of bone cancer including

  • Osteosarcoma –It is one of the most commonly seen bone cancer in patients, this type of cancer develops in the cells where tissues are newly formed. It can be seen in any site of the bone but mainly it begins at the end of large bones including legs as well as arms. It is mostly diagnosed in children as well as teenagers.
  • Chondrosarcoma – It is seen in tissues which are known as cartilage. It is our soft connective tissue which helps us in movement between the joints as well as bones. Some of these cartilage turns into bone when calcium is added to the body. This type of cancer is most commonly seen in legs, arms and pelvis bone. It is mostly seen in adults as compared to young ones.
  • Chordoma – It is one of the rare types of bone cancer which is seen at the base of the skull or the base of the spine. It is most commonly seen in older adults especially in Men.
  • Ewing sarcoma – This type of cancer is named after the person who first discovered the bone cancer. This type of cancer can be seen around the bones or soft tissues.


People who suffer from Bone cancer might suffer from different symptoms depending on the spread of cancer in the body including

  • Pain – Some of the common symptoms that can be seen in the early stages of bone cancer are pain and swelling. The pain might also come and go at first and in the later stages it becomes worse. The pain might also become worse due to movement and swelling which is very common. Children’s knee pain is commonly seen during bone cancer but is confused with growth pain and this leads to delayed diagnosis.
  • Swelling and Stiffness in Joints – When the tumor starts to appear near the joint this leads to inflammation and tenderness in the area. This then leads to painful and restricted movement of the joint.
  • Limping – On the later stages of bone cancer especially in legs due to pain and swelling the patient might suffer from limping.
  • Other clinical features – The patient might also suffer from some few clinical features like fever, weight loss or anemia.


The staging of the cancer is mainly determined by location or size of the tumor along with its spread to other parts of the body. Here are the four stages seen

  • Stage-1 – This type of tumor is low-grade and the cancer cells are localized.
  • Stage-2 – This type is still localized but there is a high grade tumor.
  • Stage-3 – This is one of the high grades where the cancer has spread to other parts of the bones.
  • Stage-4 – This is the final stage where the cancer cells have spread from the bones to other parts including liver as well as lungs.


There are different types of cancer and each of them have different causes leading to bone cancer. Many of the researchers have found that there are many risk factors but most of the time it’s not known what’s the main causative factor.

Scientists have found there is a certain type of change in the DNA that causes the bone cells to become cancerous. DNA is the chemical cell that helps in making up the genes controlling the cells to function. We mostly look like our parents and DNA is the main source for this. But it is important to note that it not only affects the look but influences the risk of developing other diseases like cancer. Some genes that grow and divide normally also stay alive and then turn into oncogenes. Few of them help in division of cells, repairing the DNA or helping them to destroy at the right time which is known as tumor suppressor gene.

Some of the people inherit these mutated genes from their parents which increases the risk of developing bone cancer. Cancer can be caused due to the gene defects which helps in creating oncogenes


It is important to note that to diagnose bone cancer your physician might require X-Rays to view the bones. MRI and CT Scans help in getting the detailed images of the bone and biopsy of the tissue can also be done which would rule out if the tumor is benign or not.
