If bone cancer spreads
Cancer cells can spread from the bone to other parts of the body. This spread is called metastasis.
Understanding how a type of cancer usually grows and spreads helps your healthcare team plan your treatment and future care. If bone cancer spreads, it can spread to:
- the lungs – the most common place where bone cancer spreads
- the brain
- other bones
Bone cancer does not often spread to the lymph nodes around the tumour (regional lymph nodes).
