About Sarcoma of the Bone
Primary malignant sarcomas of the bone include: osteosarcoma; Ewing’s sarcoma; and chondrosarcoma. The most common type of primary bone cancer is osteosarcoma, because it occurs in growing bones, is most often found in children. Chondrosarcoma is a cancer that develops from cells that produce cartilage, is more often found in the spine and pelvis rather than in legs or arms, this occurs more often in older people than among children. Ewing’s sarcoma can be found in any bone, but is most often found in the bones of the lower body such as the pelvis, tibia, fibula and femur; because of this it is generally diagnosed in children and young adults under the age of 30. Chordoma is a rare type of sarcoma that occurs in the bones of the skull and spine in people of all ages.
