What is "Paget's disease"?

Paget's disease, also known as osteitis deformans, is a condition that causes bones to become enlarged and weakened. This can lead to symptoms such as bone pain, deformities, and fractures. Paget's disease commonly affects the pelvis, spine, skull, and long bones of the legs. While the exact cause is unknown, it is thought to involve a combination of genetic and environmental factors. Treatment for Paget's disease aims to relieve symptoms and prevent complications such as fractures and deformities. This may involve medications to control bone growth and strengthen bones, as well as pain management strategies and physical therapy. In some cases, surgery may be necessary to support weakened bones or correct deformities.
