Malignant Bone Tumors

There are more than 20 types of malignant bone tumors. The most common are osteosarcoma, Ewing sarcoma and chondrosarcoma.  

Malignant tumors such as osteosarcoma and Ewing sarcoma are rapidly growing tumors that can start in the bone and spread to other areas of the body, such as the lungs. 

Chondrosarcoma rarely spreads to other parts of the body. However, these tumors can severely damage the bone in the area where they grow. 

These tumors require coordinated care from your surgeon, medical oncologist and radiation oncologist. We will work with you to find the best course of treatment.
