Pain In Back With Tenderness Around Ribs

Featured Article
Definition

Bone pain or tenderness is aching or other discomfort in one or more bones.


Alternative Names

Aches and pains in bones; Pain - bones


Considerations

Bone pain is seen less commonly than joint pain and muscle pain. The source of bone pain may be obvious, as in a fracture following an accident. Or it may be more subtle, such as cancer that spreads (metastasizes) to the bone.
