Causes of bone tumors include inherited conditions, radiation therapy, and a bone cancer or cancer that has spread from other parts of the body.
A bone tumor may cause a painless mass. Some people have dull, aching pain. And in some cases, minor injury causes a fracture near the tumor.
Treatments include surgery and radiation. Some noncancerous tumors go away without treatment.
