What Patients Say About Cancer Treatment at New Hope

Alternative Cancer Treatment Testimonial from Cindy

What is Osteosarcoma?

Unlocking the possibility of osteosarcoma remission starts with knowing vital information about the disease.

Osteosarcoma, also called osteogenic sarcoma, is a form of bone cancer that develops in connective tissue such as bone, cartilage, or muscle. Medical specialists in diagnostics often detect osteosarcoma in the long bones of the legs and arms, although the cancer can occur in any bone. In very rare instances, osteogenic sarcoma arises in soft tissue outside the bone.

This rare disease tends to occur in teenagers and young adults, but it can also affect older men and women. Fortunately, treatment for osteosarcoma has improved significantly over the years.

Osteosarcomas We Treat at New Hope Unlimited

The three primary types of osteosarcoma are:

Intramedullary osteosarcoma

This cancer is the most common osteogenic sarcoma, accounting for about 80 percent of all diagnoses. These malignant tumors develop in the medullary cavity of a long bone. There are many subtypes of intramedullary osteosarcoma, with the most common being epithelioid, small-cell, osteoblastic, chondroblastic, and fibroblastic.

Juxtacortical osteosarcoma

Juxtacortical osteosarcoma accounts for 10 to 15 percent of all diagnoses. Such tumors occur on the external surface of a bone or the periosteum (the dense layer of connective tissue covering the bones).

Extraskeletal osteosarcoma

The rarest among all osteosarcomas, extraskeletal osteosarcoma accounts for fewer than 5 percent of all diagnoses. These cancerous tumors arise in soft tissues and are unattached to a bone.

Osteogenic Sarcoma Symptoms in Men and Women

The warning signs of osteosarcoma include:

  • Bone or joint pain that may come and go for months
  • A lump that can be felt through the skin
  • Swelling and redness at the site of the tumor
  • Unanticipated and unexplainable bone fractures
  • Increased pain or discomfort when exercising
  • Limping (if osteosarcoma affects a leg)
  • Limited movement (if osteosarcoma affects a joint)

If you have persistent symptoms, seek immediate medical attention.

Osteogenic Sarcoma Risk Factors

Factors that may increase the risk of osteosarcoma include:

  • Radiation exposure. Prior radiation treatment for other cancer types can raise the likelihood of developing osteosarcoma.
  • Inherited syndromes. Parents may pass on osteosarcoma to their children through genetic syndromes that increase cancer risks. They include:
    • Hereditary retinoblastoma
    • Li-Fraumeni syndrome
    • Werner syndrome
    • Paget's disease
    • Bloom syndrome
    • Diamond-Blackfan anemia
    • Rothmund-Thomson syndrome
  • Intake of cancer medicines. Alkylating agents may make this disease more likely to develop.

If you have risk factors, discuss prevention with your doctor.

Osteosarcoma Diagnosis

Early diagnosis plays a crucial role in improving your osteosarcoma prognosis and life expectancy. A doctor might use the following tests to diagnose a malignancy:

  • Blood tests
  • Bone and chest x-rays
  • Computed tomography (CT) scan
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan
  • Positron emission tomography (PET) scan
  • Bone scan
  • Biopsy and lab test
