1. Metastatic bone cancer or secondary bone cancer: cancer from other organs that spread to the bone, so it is not derived from bone cancer. An example is the lungs cancer that spread to bone, which resembles a cell-cell the lungs cancer cells and is not a bone cell.
2. Primary bone cancer: a cancer originating from bone.
Which belong to the primary bone cancer are:
  • Multiple Myeloma
  • Osteosarcoma
  • Malignant fibrous fibrosarcoma & Histiositoma
  • Kondrosarkoma
  • Tumors Ewing
  • Bone Malignant Lymphoma.

The cause lung cancer caused by smoking is more dominant (87%), while the remaining are caused by the substance asbestos, radiation, arsenic, chromate, nickel, chloromethyl ethers, mustard gas and coke oven emissions can cause lung cancer, although usually only occurs in workers who also smoke.
