What is ‘www.bonetumoclinic.in’?
This website is dedicated to providing all the essential information that any patient with Bone Tumor, Soft Tissue Tumor, or Skeletal Metastasis, must know about their disease.It is a frustrating experience for any patient/patient’s family, to gather all the relevant information about their condition. The Internet is a terrific and easily accessible resource of information. However, it is a bewildering experience to sift through all the available information and gather exactly what you want. Often the information is brief and very general; while at times it is extensive and full of technical terms, causing confusion. Moreover, it is almost impossible to find everything that you need to know in a single location, and when you gather information from different sites, you may find some conflicts, which although may not be of any actual consequence, would still leave you with a feeling of uncertainty. This is the same experience we had while looking for informative websites on these problems. As specialists dealing with these problems regularly, we found no single website that gives all the useful information that such a patientwould need to know. It is to address this specific issue; we decided to provide a one-stop information resource for patients with these problems. ‘www.bonetumoclinic.in’ is the outcome of this effort.
Please read the pages under ‘Patient Information’. There are four pages here, one each on Malignant Bone Tumors, Benign Bone Tumors, Soft Tissue Tumors and Bone Metastasis. They have been designed in a question and answer format to make it easy for you to look for specific answers that you may be searching for. However, each page is packed with a lot of information. It is our recommendation that you take time to read the entire page. The sequence of questions has been maintained in a logical order; almost the same as followed in the management of a patient with such a problem. Most of the scientific terminologies used in the pages have been explained within the page. These terminologies have been used to make the information scientifically accurate and relevant. It also helps you to become familiar with some of the common medical terms relevant to your particular condition, as it makes your interaction with your doctor more rewarding. It is often a bewildering experience for a patient/patient’s family when they visit the doctor, where they are faced with a number of unfamiliar words like lesion, tumor, malignant, benign, biopsy, grade, staging, metastasis, radiotherapy, MRI, PET scan, etc., etc. We trust that the information provided here would help you know your problem better and equip you to understand the entire process of your diagnosis and treatment. It is our sincere belief that,well informed patientsare always the best patients for any doctor to deal with, and that they make the best use of the doctor’s time.
