What is Osteosarcoma?
According to Cancer.org, Osteosarcoma is the most common type of cancer that starts in the bone. Many osteosarcomas happen in children and young adults. Teens are the biggest age group, but it can happen at any age. Like other cancers, osteosarcoma can spread to other parts of the body when cancer cells break away from the main tumor and spread through the blood. Osteosarcoma often starts near the ends of the long bones in the legs, especially around the knee, the part of the thigh bone next to the knee, and the part of the lower leg bone next to the knee. The arm bone near the shoulder is the second most common place for osteosarcoma to start.
