The best way to avoid a broken bone is to avoid a fall. Pay attention to the floor in public buildings and shopping centres because many floors are made of highly polished marble or tile that can be very slippery, especially if the floor is wet. You can be vulnerable in eating areas where food and drink spills are more likely to happen. If feeling unstable use a walker or cane for added stability and wear shoes with rubber soles for added traction.

Slow down, take care and don’t let the everyone in a hurry harass you. If you do fall let your medical team and your caregivers know. They might need to check you for injuries.

Bones weakened from metastatic cancer can break or fracture. Even minor falls can result in broken bones. It is extremely important for the patient to take special care.
