The body’s structural framework is made of bone. The structure of the bone is hollow. The matrix, a network of fibrous fibres also known as the outer layer of the bone, is where calcium salts are deposited. A region of cartilage, a softer type of bone-like tissue, is present at each end of the bone. A fibrous tissue matrix and a gel-like material combine to form cartilage. Contrary to bone, cartilage lacks calcium. The joints between the bones are formed by cartilage, which serves as a cushion between the bones, along with ligaments and other tissues.

The periosteum, a fibrous tissue, covers the exterior of the bone. There are two distinct cell types in the bone. The osteoclast is the cell that creates bone and the osteoclast is the cell that dissolves bone. The soft tissue found inside hollow bones is called bone marrow. Some bones’ marrow is made entirely of fatty substances. Other bones’ marrow is made up of both flat cells and blood-forming cells. Red blood cells, white blood cells, and blood platelets are produced by these blood-forming cells. The bone marrow also contains reticuloendothelial cells, plasma cells, and fibroblasts.

Primary bone cancers

Most bone cancers are called sarcomas. Sarcomas are cancers that mostly develop from bone, cartilage, muscles, fibrous tissue, fatty tissue, or nerve tissue.

(1) Osteosarcoma: Osteosarcoma is the most prevalent bone cancer and is a malignancy of the bone itself. It affects younger people more frequently. Males are more susceptible to being impacted.

(2) Chondrosarcoma is a cartilage cell malignancy. Age increases the risk of developing this type of cancer.

(3) Ewing’s tumour: The majority of Ewing’s tumours form in the bones, while a very small number also form in other tissues or organs. Bone cancers called Ewing’s tumours grow inside the bone’s hollow. Children and young adults tend to develop this cancer most frequently.

(4) Chordoma: This form of bone cancer typically affects the spine’s bones and the base of the skull

(2) Risk factors:

(a) Inherited genes

(b) Paget’s disease

(c) Multiple exostoses (overgrowth of bone tissue)

(d) Multiple osteochondromus (benign bone tumors)

(e) Multiple enchondromas (benign cartilage tumors)

(f) Radiation

(g) Bone marrow transplantation

(h) Injuries

(3) Signs and symptoms of bone cancer:

(A) Pain: Pain in the affected bone is the most common complaint

(B) Swelling: Swelling in the affected area

(C) Fractures

(D) Generalized symptoms: If the cancer has spread it can cause many symptoms in other organs.

(4) Diagnosis as per modern science:

(a) X-Rays

(b) Computed tomography

(c) Magnetic resonance Imaging

(d) Radionuclide bone scan

(e) Positron emission tomography

(f) Biopsy

(5) Staging:

Stage I: A low-grade, small-sized tumour that has not spread.

Stage II  refers to a larger, higher grade tumour that has not spread.

Stage III: The tumour, regardless of grade, has not yet spread.

Stage IV: Aside from the lung, the cancer has progressed to the lymph nodes and distant places.

Ayurvedic treatment 


Ginger is a medical plant and commonly used spice with a very strong flavour. It contains inherent anti-cancer properties. Ginger extract is very helpful in relieving pain and inflammation caused by cancer. It lowers the number of prostaglandin elements in the body and calms down the molecules that produce pain. Apart from pain relief, ginger is also helpful in reducing nausea and discomfort. Induce it with your meal or eat it raw to take benefits of ginger during cancer.


Turmeric has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Its timely consumption helps in relieving pain and also destroys cancer cells by preventing further growth. Being a well-known spice in India, it is easily accessible in every household. It is also used in medicines in Ayurveda and is considered even better in relieving pain than other conventional medicines. Add a pinch of turmeric to your diet or in warm water for daily consumption.


Through research, it is found that Ashwagandha has anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective properties. Inflammation is caused by increasing health issues and is a sign that your body is not doing well. Ashwagandha is an ayurvedic herb that can help in lowering inflammation and protect the body from a variety of diseases. It prevents the further growth of cancer cells and helps in the treatment of cancer.
