Abstract

- The treatment of cancer can have a negative influence on bone metabolism. This can result in the development of early osteoporosis or the aggravation of existing osteoporosis, with an increased risk of fractures. - Depending on the duration and type of cancer therapy, prophylactic or therapeutic measures against osteoporosis may become necessary. - The risk of osteoporosis may be assessed by screening with osteodensitometry, among other methods. - Effective treatment is possible, for example with bisphosphonates.
