The primary carcinoma may secondarily invade bone tissue through direct extensions, blood circulation or lymphatic transportation particulary when it is arising from breast, prostate, kidney, thyroid and lung. Metastatics tumors of bone are more common than primary tumor of bone. The most common tumor, which metastasizes into bone, is the breast adenocarcinoma. Some metastatic tumors of bone including the breast cancer, may appear only as a destructive lesion, while prostatic carcinoma is osteoblastoma. The metastasis is mostly appeared in skull, vertebrae, pelvic, femur and humerus bones.
