Osteosarcoma Stages

Metastatic Osteosarcoma
In metastatic osteosarcoma, the cancer cells have spread from the bone in which the cancer began to other parts of the body. In most cases, the cancer will spread to the lungs, but it may also spread to other bones. Approximately one in five patients with osteosarcoma will have cancer that has metastasized by the time it is diagnosed.
 
Recurrent Osteosarcoma
Recurrent osteosarcoma refers to cases of the cancer has come back after it has been treated. Osteosarcoma may come back in the tissues where it first started or it may come back in another part of the body. Osteosarcoma usually recurs in the lung. When osteosarcoma recurs, it is usually within two to three years after osteosarcoma treatment is completed. Although later recurrence is possible, it is rare.
