Other treatments for secondary bone cancer

Other treatments that may occasionally be used for secondary bone cancer include:

  • high intensity focused ultrasound, which uses high-energy, high-frequency focused sound waves to produce high temperatures inside the tumour cells and destroy them
  • radiofrequency ablation, which uses heat to destroy cancer cells
  • cryotherapy, which uses very cold temperatures to destroy cancer cells.

These treatments aren’t widely available and you may have to travel to another hospital to have them.

Your doctor will tell you more about these treatments if they are suitable for you.
