Is cancer responsible for non-healing bone
My mum (74yrs) was diagonised with endomertial cancer and her womb removed. She underwent chemo and radiotherapy. Now she has a broken bone from an accident which refused to heal.  Can the chemo and radiotherapy be responsible for this? Is it also possible that the cancer could have spread though she was cleared b4 the accident? Pls respond

Hi!
Non union or non healing fractures are due to infection or due to improper alignment. It can be due to the bones becoming weak due to chemo and radiotherapy. Hence, yes, due to chemo and radio, this can happen. It can also be due to bone metastasis. Please discuss with your mother's treating doctor. Take care!
