Bone is living tissue that provides shape and support for the body, as well as protection for some organs. Bone also serves as a storage site for minerals and provides the medium – marrow – for the development and storage of blood cells.
Because the functions of bone are numerous and complex, many disorders require clinical care by a physician or other health care professional. These conditions include benign (noncancerous) disorders, cancers that occur in bone, and cancers that affect bone.
