Cancer and Osteoporosis

Dr. Brian Schiro, Interventional Radiologist with Miami Cardiac and Vascular Institute, says there are several types of cancers that can cause bone demineralization. "There are certain peptides and hormones that are produced by some of the cancers that can cause it, but most commonly it's caused by the treatments for cancers. For instance in breast cancer aromatase inhibitors are some of the things that block estrogen and because of that it results in some bone demineralization."

He also recommends spending time exercising, taking the appropriate medications and the appropriate nutrition in order to improve the bone density.
