  Bone Pain: Encyclopedia of Cancer
Bone pain represents one of the most debilitating side effects of the metastases of high-incidence cancers such as breast, prostate, lung, and multiple myeloma (myelomatosis).
A predominant source of bone pain in the cancer patient is due to pathologic fracture and to osteoclast-induced bone resorption by the tumor.
In treatments for bone resorption-induced pain, a group of chemical agents, known as bisphosphonates and calcitonin, acts to strongly block the bone resorption process.

 MedlinePlus Medical Encyclopedia: Bone scan
A bone scan is a test that detects areas of increased or decreased bone metabolism (turnover).
If a bone scan is performed to evaluate possible fracture or infection, images will be performed shortly after the radiotracer injection, as well as after a 3-hour delay, when the tracer has collected in the bones.
Detecting areas of abnormal bone metabolism is valuable in determining whether there is associated tumor, fracture, infection (osteomyelitis), or an underlying metabolic disorder.
