Bone Sarcoma, commonly called Osteosarcoma, is cancer of the mesenchymal cells, which are the cells that make up the tissue that connect parts of the body. Osteosarcoma, or Bone Sarcoma, is the most common bone cancer in children, usually getting diagnosed in their mid to late teens. Osteosarcoma is also very common in people over the age of 60 and has been linked to one gene that causes an increased risk. Bone Sarcoma generally occurs in large bones with a fast growing rate; for example, bones near the knee and near the shoulder. Symptoms of Osteosarcoma include bone pain, easy fracture, and limitation in movement. Chemotherapy is used initially to shrink the size of the tumor followed by surgery to remove the any of the remaining tumor. If the cancer has not spread, or metastasized, then the outlook is good, but if the cancer has spread the chances are decreased. Other Bones cancers include Chondrosarcoma, cancer in the cartilage, and Ewings Sarcoma, cancer in the middle part of the bones.
