About Eye Cancer

Bone

Bone metastases can cause considerable pain if left untreated. Radiating the tumours will not kill them, but can improve the pain they cause, so this is often a good alternative to painkilling drugs.

If patients need more aggressive therapy, cryoablation and embolisation will be considered by the medical, surgical and radiation oncologists.

Patients may also be given a bisphosphonate drug. There is evidence from other cancers to suggest that these drugs may slow down or halt bone damage.  They may also reduce pain.
