Bone and Soft Tissue Tumour Service

Metastatic bone disease

This page gives you information about metastatic bone disease and its treatment.

Some patients treated by the Bone and Soft Tissue Tumour Service have tumours in their bones which have come from other sites of the body, for example from breast or kidney cancer. This type of tumour is called metastatic bone disease and can cause problems by weakening the bone, which can lead to a fracture or break in the bone


The team can offer specialist surgery for metastatic bone disease and can help to confirm the diagnosis of metastatic bone disease when it is important to do so. We are happy to work with your oncologist to decide if surgery is right for you.
