Primary bone cancer originates in the cells of the bone. Secondary bone cancer will spread from bones to other parts of the body. Osteosarcoma is the most common type of bone cancer, and will start inside the bone cells that create new bone tissue. Cancer that is found in the bones has either started there (primary bone cancer) or it has spread to the bones after starting somewhere else.
Bone cancer is not common (makes up less than 1% of all cancers) and it is usually more common in children and younger adults than older patients. Radiation exposure and some hereditary conditions can increase the risk of developing bone cancer.
