Dr. Beauchamp explains the causes of bone tumors.

Dr. Beauchamp:
I wish we knew what causes bone tumors. We, by and large, don’t know in most cases what causes the tumors. We do know that there are some that form as a result of mistakes in the way our skeletons grow and develop. So there are tumors that occur in childhood, adolescence, and early adulthood, but the ones that are most serious are the ones that occur for reasons that we really don’t understand.
