A Study of Radiation Therapy for people with painful bone metastasis

What we are studying

Patients who receive a single fraction of radiation therapy to treat bone metastasis get effective control of pain. However, some patients require a second treatment at some point in the future. The purpose of this research study is to find out what effects (good and bad) immediate treatment with a second fraction of radiation therapy has on you and your condition.
