Metastatic bone disease is a secondary cancer that has spread or metastasized to the bone from the other cancerous organs. The cancers that metastasize to bones include the cancers of lungs, breast, thyroid, kidney and prostate. Metastatic bone disease causes weakness of the bones, make them brittle and break easily.
