Any cancer may metastasize to the bone, but are metastases of cancers most often v. a. with origin in the following areas: breast lung prostate glands thyroid colon prostate cancer in men and breast cancer in women are the most common forms of cancer. Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death in both sexes. Breast cancer is the most common cancer that metastasized to the bone. Each bone can be affected by metastases. A metastatic disease typically does not scatter in bone below the forearm or calf middle, but when it occurs at these points, it is most commonly due to lung or occasionally kidney cancer. Symptoms and complaints metastasis manifested as bone pain, although they remain asymptomatic for a long time. Bone metastases can cause symptoms before a primary tumor is suspected or occur in patients with a known cancer diagnosis. Diagnostic radiography radionuclide scintigraphy to identify all metastases Clinical evaluation and investigation to determine the primary tumor (if known) Frequently biopsy of unknown Pirm√§rtumor Metastatic bone tumors are to be drawn in all patients with unexplained bone pain into consideration, but especially in patients with: known cancer pain more than one place findings from imaging studies suggest that metastatic prostate cancer is usually blastic, lung cancer usually lytic and breast cancer may be blastic or lytic. CT and MRI are very sensitive to specific metastasis. However, if there is a suspicion of metastases, usually a Ganzk√∂rperradionuklidszintigraphie is performed, which is not quite as sensitive. Bone scintigraphy is more sensitive than X-ray plain films in the early and asymptomatic bone metastases and can be used to examine the entire body. In Szintigramm visible lesions are generally regarded as metastases if the patient has a known primary tumor. Metastasis should be suspected in patients presenting with multiple lesions in the bone scan. Although there is in patients with known cancer or a bone lesion suspected metastasis, may also not be a metastasis in the lesion. Therefore, a needle biopsy of the lesion is often performed to confirm the diagnosis of metastasis. Some tumors today, the PET is used for whole-body examination. It is specific for bone metastases than the Radionuklidknochenszintigraphie and can identify many extraskeletal metastases.
