eneral Ob.ecti$es: To learn important information about bone tumors specifically

osteosarcoma, enabling the group gain deeper knowledge and understanding, towards giving a safe and quality nursing care for patients with said condition.

S!ecific Ob.ecti$es: /Nurse0centered ob.ecti$es To focus on bone tumors and give a brief discussion of fracture of the humerus. To review the anatomy and physiology of the affected area and to discuss the pathophysiology osteosarcoma including its predisposing factors. To outline and analyze the drug used by the patient in the course of treatment. To plan and carry out nursing interventions appropriate in the management of the disease. /Patient0centered ob.ecti$es To have an idea and be familiar about the risk bone tumors and bone fractures. To be able to gain insights about the condition enable to render an appropriate actions/management so that the patient will prevent further complications.


Bone Tumor is neoplasm in the skeletal system. They maybe primary or metastatic tumor from primary cancer elsewhere in the body. Metastatic Tumor are more common than primary bone tumor. There are two types of bone tumor the Benign Tumor and Malignant Bone Tumor. Benign bone tumor includes !steoma, "hondroma, "steochondroma and #iant "ell Tumor. This tumor tends to grow slowly and usually do not destroy the supporting or surrounding tissue or spread to other part of the body. Malignant bone tumor is an ill defined, lack sharp border and e$tend beyond the confines of the bone. There are several types of malignant bone tumor which includes !steosarcoma, %wing/s &arcoma and "hondroma.

!steosarcoma is an ancient disease that is still incompletely understood. The term sarcoma was introduced by the %nglish surgeon 'hon (bernalty in )*+, and was derived from #reek roots meaning fleshy e$crescene. -n )*+., the /rench surgeon (le$is Boyer first used the term osteochondroma. -t gross appearance was described )*,0 by Baron #uillaume 1upuytren as a whitish or reddish mass, lardaceous and firm at an early stage of the disease2 but presenting at a later period, points of softening, cerebriform matter, e$travasting blood and white or straw colored fluid of a viscid consistence in its interior. The incidence of osteosarcoma is slightly higher in males than females with males 3 ..4 per million per year5 and females 3,.. per million per year5. -t is very rare in young children 3+.. cases per million per year in children 6. years.5. -ncidence increases steadily with age, increasing more dramatically in adolescence, corresponding with the growth spurt. !steosarcoma is deadly form of musculoskeletal cancer that most commonly causes patients to die from pulmonary metastatis disease and which has . year survival rate of ).74+8.

/racture of the humerus represents 97.8 of all fractures it is related to bimodal age distribution. -t may occur in children due to accident resulting to in:ury or trauma to the bones and in elderly due to weakened bones which are prone to fracture when accidentally fall. /racture of the humerus can be described according to its location, it can be either, pro$imal, middle or distal third and its pattern spiral, transverse and comminuted. ( pathologic fracture is a broken bone caused by disease leading to weakness of the bone. This process is most commonly due to osteoporosis, but may also be due to other pathologies such as cancer, infection, inherited bone disorders,or a bone cyst. !nly a small number of conditions are commonly responsible for pathological fractures, including osteoporosis, osteomalacia, paget;s disease, osteitis, osteogenesis imperfecta, benign bone tumors and cysts, secondary malignant bone tumours and primary malignant bone tumours. /ragility fracture is a type of pathologic fracture that occurs as result of normal activities, such as a fall from standing height or less.This definition arises because a normal human being ought to be able to fall from standing height without breaking any bones, and a fracture therefore suggests weakness of the skeleton.
