1), but this classification actually represents extremes of a continuum in which normal bone remodeling, where bone destruction and formation are balanced, is unbalanced. Increased bone destruction is characteristic of osteolytic metastasis and markedly increased bone formation results in osteoblastic metastasis. However, patients can have both osteolytic and osteoblastic metastasis as well as mixed lesions containing both elements. For example, patients with MM have pure lytic lesions, while patients with prostate cancer have predominantly osteoblastic lesions.
