Bone cancer is the rarest form of cancer found in the world to date.

Primary bone cancer starts in the bone. It is rare accounting for less than 1 percent of all malicious tumors.

It is found more in males, especially in kids and teenagers. The most common type of primary cancer is Osteosarcoma.

It can affect any bone in the body, but the arms, legs, and pelvis are the most common locations.

Other comparatively less common forms of primary bone cancer include Ewing sarcoma, malignant fibrous histiocytoma, and chondrosarcoma.

Types of the Bone Cancer:

Bone cancer or a bone tumor is a neoplastic growth of tissue in bone. Abnormal growths found in the bone can be either benign (noncancerous) or malignant (cancerous).

A bone lytic lesion (often just lytic lesion) is an area where part of a bone appears to have been dissolved or “eaten away”.

Bone tumors may be classified as “primary tumors”, which originate in bone or from bone-derived cells and tissues, and “secondary tumors” which originate in other sites and spread (metastasize) to the skeleton.
