Cancer bone metastasis was common clinical events to many human cancer, such as breast, prostate and lung cancer. It is a devastating event that is difficult to therapeutic targeting and benefiting. Several reasons are major factors and drawback for disease management and therapeutic cure. To promote clinical treatment outcomes of bone metastasis, high-quality diagnosis and drug selection is indispensable. This editorial discusses bone cancer metastasis diagnosis and relevant therapeutics in the clinic.
