Osteosarcoma Open pop-up dialog box Close Osteosarcoma Osteosarcoma Osteosarcoma, the most common type of bone cancer, often starts in the long bones — the legs or the arms — but it can occur in any bone. Osteosarcoma is a type of bone cancer that begins in the cells that form bones. Osteosarcoma is most often found in the long bones — more often the legs, but sometimes the arms — but it can start in any bone.

In very rare instances, it occurs in soft tissue outside the bone. Osteosarcoma tends to occur in teenagers and young adults, but it can also occur in younger children and older adults. Treatment usually involves chemotherapy, surgery and, sometimes, radiation therapy.

Doctors select treatment options based on where the osteosarcoma starts, the size of the cancer, the type and grade of the osteosarcoma, and whether the cancer has spread beyond the bone. Treatment innovations for osteosarcoma have greatly improved the outlook prognosis for this cancer over the years.

After completion of treatment, lifelong monitoring is recommended to watch for potential late effects of intense treatments. Osteosarcoma symptoms are similar to many more-common conditions, such as sports injuries, so your doctor may investigate those causes first.

Doctors know this cancer forms when something goes wrong in one of the cells that are responsible for making new bone. Osteosarcoma begins when a healthy bone cell develops changes in its DNA. The result is a mass tumor of poorly formed bone cells that can invade and destroy healthy body tissue.

Cells can break away and spread metastasize throughout the body. Osteosarcoma can spread from where it started to other areas, making treatment and recovery more difficult.

Osteosarcoma that spreads most often spreads to the lungs and to other bones. Adapting to limb amputation. Surgery that removes the tumor and spares the limb is used whenever possible. Learning to use an artificial limb prosthesis will take time, practice and patience. Experts can help you adapt.

Long-term treatment side effects. The aggressive chemotherapy needed to control osteosarcoma can cause substantial side effects, both in the short and long term. Your health care team can help you manage the side effects that happen during treatment and provide you with a list of side effects to watch for in the years after treatment.
