Information on Osteosarcoma

Osteosarcoma is a type of bone cancer -- in fact, it is the most common type. It tends to affect children and young adults. Risk factors in addition to young age include:
 
  • Having undergone radiation therapy or chemotherapy
  • Having a history of Paget's disease
  • Having a family history of osteosarcoma
  • Having hereditary retinoblastoma.
 
Pain is the most common symptom; however, symptoms can vary, and other conditions will need to be ruled out when making a diagnosis. Treatment for osteosarcoma will be based on the stage of the tumor, the person's overall health, and other factors.
