We are interested in the singular elliptic equation

$\Delta h = \frac{1}{\alpha } h^{ -\alpha }-p(r)$ in $R^N( N\geq3 ),$

where $\alpha >1$ and the monotone decreasing function $p(r)$ satisfying $\lim_{r\rightarrow \infty}p(r)=c>0.$ In this paper we show that for any $\eta >0$ there is a unique radial solution $h(r)$ with $h(0)=\eta$ and $h(r)$ is oscillatory in $[0, \infty )$. We prove $\lim_{r \rightarrow \infty } h(r)=( \alpha c)^{-\frac{1}{\alpha}}.$ We also obtain similar properties of singular solutions, of which the zero set is nonempty.
