Although most bone cancers respond best when caught early, unfortunately there is no existing test for the early detection of bone cancer. You should know the signs and report any symptoms to your doctor.
While most people with these symptoms do not have bone cancer, your doctor can perform a physical exam and some tests to make sure. Physicians on the medical staff at Baylor University Medical Center at Dallas who specialize in several different areas of care are often required to best diagnose and treat soft tissue tumors. The Baylor Sammons Bone Tumor Center is designed to coordinate and streamline the diagnosis and treatment efforts to offer optimal care.
Physicians on the medical staff at Baylor Dallas offer care management from initial diagnosis or second opinion and consultation through follow-up care. Physician referral information is available through the Baylor Sammons Patient Navigation Program at 214.820.3535 or by calling 1.800.4BAYLOR (422.9567) or searching our online physician directory.
