While there are no direct causes linked to bone cancer, factors that increase the risk include aged from child to young adult, having received radiation or chemotherapy, family history and a few rare diseases.

Bone cancer is a group of cancers that start in the bones (primary) and are rare. On the other hand, cancers that start elsewhere and end up in the bones are more common. This page is about primary bone cancer. Bone pain is the most significant symptom. Other signs and symptoms include swelling and tenderness near the tumor, frequent breaks, fatigue, fever, weight loss and anemia. All of these symptoms can be signs of other, more likely conditions.
Most often, bone cancers present no danger of spreading. In the cases where spreading is a risk or where the cancer has significantly decreased mobility, surgery to remove the cancerous tissue is the most common treatment. In some cases, a limb needs to be removed, but there are other treatment options being developed. Radiation and chemotherapy are sometimes used to either replace or accompany surgery, depending on the type and stage of the cancer.
