Bone metastases

Dr Ruwani Mendis

This Counterpart Making Connections webinar was recorded in Melbourne on 17 October 2022. Bone metastases also called ‘bone mets,’ occur when cancer cells break off from a primary tumour that is somewhere else in the body. These cells travel through the bloodstream or lymph system to a part of the bone and become metastatic cancer cells. Dr Ruwani Mendis, a consultant palliative care physician and medical oncologist, discusses treatments available to help reduce pain and other symptoms of bone metastases. Hosted by Kellie Holland.
