Masqueraders - 3 Cancer Case Studies

Actual case studies, clinical findings and background information for 3 common tumors presenting to a musculoskeletal private practice

Less than 5% of primary care physicians routinely examine for red flags during their initial screen (Bishop PB, Wing PC. Knowledge transfer in family physicians managing patients with acute low back pain: a prospective randomized control trial. Spine J. 2006;6:282–288)

This course details three clinical case studies that presented as primary musculoskeletal complaints initially but were later determined to be tumors. In each case study the eBook leads the reader from initial examination through to the point of resolution. Each case study details initial examination findings, manual therapy management, investigations and medical intervention plus reflective thinking at key points as each case study develops. Following each case study is detailed discussion section about the specific tumor highlighted, for background information and to enable greater understanding by primary contact practitioners.

Tumors under the microscope in this course include; pancoast, meningioma and osteosarcoma.
