Bone cancer is a sarcoma that starts in the bones or adjacent soft tissues such as cartilage.
Cancers that starts in the bone are rare. More often, cancer in the bones has spread from elsewhere in the body (metastasized) and needs to be treated as part of the original cancer.
Bone cancer is more common in children than adults and tends to affect the pelvis or the long bones in the arms and legs.
Bone cancer is different from soft-tissue sarcoma, which starts in the tissues such as fat, muscle, blood vessels, nerves, deep skin tissue and fibrous tissue. Bone marrow cancer, also known as multiple myeloma, affects the spongy marrow inside the bones.
