Bone disease


Any condition or disease that affects the bones.


Bone disease is any condition that affects bone health. These conditions can make bones weaker and more likely to break. They include the bone-thinning disease osteoporosis, which can happen with aging. Poor nutrition or too little calcium and vitamin D can weaken bones. Like soft tissues in the body, bones can get cancer or become infected.


Symptoms vary depending on the condition.


Treatments depend on the condition.
