   The primary bone cancer is a rare type of
    cancer that affects the human skeleton.
    Unlike the secondary, originates in the
    bone and not the result of a cancer
    elsewhere in the body spread to the bone.

   Risk factors include being of young age (except

    radiotherapy or chemotherapy, suffering from
    Paget's disease and in some cases there may be a
    hereditary component.

   There are three types of bone cancer:
   Osteosarcoma is the most common variant. It develops in the
    new tissue of growing bones (osteoid).
   Chondrosarcoma: originates in the cartilage between their
    ages of 50 and 60.
   Ewing's Sarcoma: born in the immature nervous tissue, usually
    in the bone marrow. It is more common in the growing age.

Symptoms
These may vary depending on location and size of the tumor, but
    in general they are all painful.Tumors that are located in or
    near joints may cause swelling in the area. Bone cancer can
    also interfere with normal movements and weaken the tissues
    that cause fractures. You can also experience weakness,
    fatigue, anemia, fever and weight loss
            Bones Cancer
In most cases of bone cancer. A tumor grows
   inside the bone and fracture trigger these
   failures and defamation of the bone.

these 3 types of bone cancer are deadly. If one
   survives this disease without having to amputate
   any member, is legend.this disease is one of the
   most deadly out there, but is not famous because
   it is very difficult to develop.

   Treatments

The options depend on the type, size, stage of cancer, age and
    general condition of the person. Typically, as the main measure
    is resorted to surgery, although the pre-and post-surgical
    chemotherapy helps prevent many amputations. In the case of
    Swing's sarcoma, which tends to metastasize rapidly, usually
    using a combination chemotherapy plus radiation therapy or

Diagnosis : To diagnose bone cancer, the doctor asks about the patient's history
     and makes a complete medical examination. Your doctor may suggest a blood
     test to determine the level of an enzyme called alkaline phosphatase. You
     can find a lot of alkaline phosphatase in the blood when cells that form bone
     tissue are very active-when children are growing, "when it is healing a broken
     bone or when a disease or a tumor causes production of tissue abnormal
     bone. Since it is usually possible to find high levels of this enzyme in growing
     children and adolescents, this test is not a completely reliable indicator of
     bone cancer.X-rays can show the location, size and shape of a bone tumor. If
     X-rays suggest that a tumor may be cancerous, your doctor may recommend
      special imaging tests such as a bone scan.
Today there are many people struggling to
   find out more about bone cancer. People
   works hard lot, working day and night to
   save the lives of children with the
   disease.
