The Citizen Times – Experts underline need for correct Sarcoma (bone tumour) diagnosis

Published : 24 August, 2023

Bone tumours being rare are often misdiagnosed and inappropriately treated leading to delays which can prove detrimental. The first ORP meet organized by Rajiv Gandhi Cancer Institute (RGCI) Delhi deliberated on the challenge of incorrect diagnosis and the impact of wrong procedures on the treatment outcome of bone tumours or Sarcoma which is a cancer of Bone & Soft tissues.

The meet was organised in association with Indian Musculoskeletal Oncology Society (IMSOS), Delhi Musculoskeletal Oncology Group (DMSOG) and Sarcoma Education Foundation. “Unfortunately the sarcoma tumor goes undiagnosed in limbs or an inappropriate surgery is done. In such cases this leads to damage and major risk of losing the limb, which affects the life of young children / adults. ORP Meet was organized to make general orthopedic surgeons and others aware about right ways to evaluate bone tumour, its diagnosis, treatment options available, common problems and their resolution”, said Dr Himanshu Rohela, Consultant and Head Orthopaedic Oncology RGCI and Organising Secretary of ORP Meet.
