This chapter discusses tumours and malignancies occurring in the bones and soft tissues. These are common in children and rare in adults. Bone and soft tissue tumours may occur at any age; however, certain types of tumour follow a recognized pattern. Bone and soft tissue tumours grow and infiltrate locally, and they commonly affect the lungs via blood-borne metastasis. These tumours have great implications for the extent of local treatment required and the probability of local recurrence. Topics covered are the common symptoms associated with these tumours, such as pain, fungation and haemorrhage, as well as the management and treatment procedures that alleviate these.

Keywords:   bones, soft tissues, bone tumours, soft tissue tumours, fungation, haemorrhage
