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.
