Primary bone cancer is a rare type of cancer that starts in the bones. Bone cancer can impact any bone, however most cases develop in the lengthy bones of the legs or arms. The main symptoms consist of: relentless bone pain that becomes worse gradually and proceeds into the night; swelling and soreness over a bone, which can make movement difficult if the affected bone is near a joint; a recognizable swelling over a bone; a weak bone that breaks more easily than normal. These types of bone cancer influence different types of cell. A few of the primary types of bone cancer are: osteosarcoma, the most common type, which mainly affects children and young people under 20; Ewing sarcoma, which most commonly influences people aged in between 10 and 20; chondrosarcoma, which often tends to affect adults aged over 40. The treatment and expectation will rely on the type of bone cancer you have.
