What is bone cancer?

Bone cancer occurs due to abnormal growth of cells in the bone and it grows out of control. Sometimes cancer can spread from other sites to the bone and this is called bone metastasis and this is not a true bone cancer.

I read this somewhere,

 ”when you hear the name of India, your heart must swell with pride. When you hear the name of Kerala, the blood must throb in your veins.”

As in any other filed medical field also experiences changes day by day, even in the field of surgery in terms of techniques we accept for a better results for our patients and Oncosurgery or Cancer Surgery field is not an exception.

Dr. Thomas Cherian (1940-2014) is one of the first surgical oncologists from State of Kerala, India. A humble human being, dexterous surgeon, untiring worker, and a dynamic personality that was Dr. Thomas Cherian. His vision, hardworking abilities and indomitable spirit were exemplary.

Kaso conducted  it's 4th Clinical Meeting "Soft Tissue Sarcoma; An update"  on 20th November 2016 at Aster MIMS Hospital, Kozhikode.
