A typical bone in your body contains three types of tissue—a hard outer tissue, a sponge-like inner tissue, and smooth tissue at the ends.
Chondrosarcoma is a malignant type of bone cancer that primarily affects the cartilage cells of the femur, arm, pelvis, knee, and spine.
Ewing sarcoma can occur in any bone, but is most often found in the extremities and can involve muscle and the soft tissues around the tumor site.
Myeloma bone disease is cancer that affects certain white blood cells called plasma cells.
Osteosarcoma usually affects the long bones around the knee. It occurs most often in children, adolescents, and young adults.
