Bone Cancer

Bone cancer can be classified into two types: osteosarcoma and Ewing’s sarcoma. Of the two, osteosarcoma is the most common and typically presents itself in the bones surrounding the knee. Ewing’s sarcoma generally affects the bones of the ribs, pelvis, upper arms and thighs. Both of these bone cancers are most commonly found in adolescents and young adults.
