Manual of Bones and soft tissue tumors of the extremities

One of the most important factors affecting prognosis for survival and development of metastases is early diagnosis of malignant bone and soft tissue tumours. Hence, efforts have been made to sensitize patients to seek medical attention for evaluation of any lump that develops and persists particularly if painful or enlarging. This is coupled with education of medical practitioners to offer prompt investigations for patients with potential red flag signs suggestive of musculoskeletal tumours. Such signs include lumps that are enlarging or appear deep, pain, bony lesions identified on radiographs or bone fracture developing without a history of significant injury. Such patients require urgent referral to a specialist centre. This book is an attempt to correct this anomaly. It presents a detailed description of surgical approaches to patients with musculoskeletal tumours and emphasise the need for integrated therapy in the management of such patients.
