Caption: Secondary bone cancer. Light micrograph of a metastatic (secondary) malignant (cancerous) tumour in the thigh bone (femur). The tumour has caused the accumulation of bony lesions (red). The cancer has spread from a primary cancer of the prostate, which is most common in men over 65. Spread of cancer to bones causes great pain and the bones have a tendency to fracture. The prognosis is very poor. Treatment is with hormone therapy, radiation therapy or chemotherapy.
