Your doctor will develop a suitable treatment plan for your cancer based on your age, health status, and the phase of your cancer.
If the cancer is nonaggressive, your doctor may endorse watchful waiting, which is also called active surveillance. This means you’ll delay treatment but have even checkups with your doctor to monitor cancer.
More aggressive types of cancer may be treated with other choices, such as:
• Surgery • Radiation • Cryotherapy • Hormone therapy • Chemotherapy • Stereotactic radiosurgery • Immunotherapy
If your cancer is very destructive and has metastasized, there’s a good chance it has spread to your bones. For bone metastases, the above treatments may be used, in adding to others.
