Bone fractures: Bone cancer generally causes the affected bones to become weak. This is because cancerous cells infiltrate the bone, preventing healthy bone cells from growing and functioning properly. As a result, the patient has an increased risk of experiencing bone fractures after little or no trauma. In addition, healing time after a bone fracture may be increased.
Metastasis: Bone cancer may spread to other parts of the body, such as the lungs or lymph nodes. When cancer spreads to another organ, it may lead to organ dysfunction or death.
