    Bone Cancer Directory

    Bone cancer can occur when another cancer spreads to the bone (metastasis) or can originate in the bone itself (primary bone cancer). The three most common types are osteosarcoma, Ewing's sarcoma, and chondrosarcoma. The most common symptom is pain. There are several different treatment plans a doctor may recommend based on the stage of bone cancer. These may include radiation therapy or limb salvage surgery.
