Cancers Affecting the Bone

Cancers Affecting the Bone | Symptoms & Signs | Diagnosis & Tests | Prevention & Expectations | Treatment & Monitoring

What are the signs and symptoms of the disease?

A fracture in a bone that causes severe pain may be the first sign that cancer has invaded the bone. Sometimes the person will have pain in the area for some time before the fracture occurs. In other cases, there is no pain until the bone breaks.

Sometimes, the bone metastasis will alter the metabolism in the bone so that too much calcium is released into the blood. Calcium is the hard mineral that makes up most of the bone. When too much calcium is in the blood, the person may have the following symptoms:

  • excessive drowsiness
  • excessive thirst
  • frequent urination
  • nausea
