Bone Cancer


Cancer can start in any bone in the body, but the pelvis and long bones in the arms and legs are the most commonly affected. Bone cancer is extremely rare,   accounting for less than 1% of all cancers. Noncancerous bone tumors are significantly more prevalent than cancerous bone tumours.

The phrase “bone cancer” excludes diseases that start elsewhere in the body and progress to the bones. Breast cancer that has spread to the bones is not considered bone cancer.

Some forms of bone cancer are more common in children and adolescents, whereas others are more common in adults. One of the most popular treatments for bone cancer is surgical removal, however chemotherapy and the radiation therapy may also be utilized for the treatment purpose.
