Bone tumours can either be benign or malignant (aggressive) and usually require some form of treatment. Benign tumours sometimes will only need to be followed up, but usually require surgery due to the fact that they can be associated with pain.
Malignant tumours (bone sarcomas) always require treatment, which can be surgery alone or surgery together with other treatments, such as chemotherapy or, rarely, radiotherapy.
Some malignant tumors start from internal organs (for example breast, prostate, kidney) and can involve the bone (metastasis), decreasing bone strength and causing fractures. Ms Di Bella collaborates with medical and radiation oncologists for the treatment of bone metastasis.
