Cancer is a terrible disease that can affect people from all walks of life, and from all age groups. It is a disease that has ravaged mankind for as long as we can remember, and being diagnosed with cancer used to be a sure sign of an early death. While some types are still extremely difficult to treat and likely to be fatal, others are treatable, or even curable.

Our bones can be affected by cancer just as any other part of our body can, although they are among the least likely body parts to be affected. Here’s a closer look at what bond cancer is, the impact it can have on somebody’s life, and what can be done about it.

1. Bone Cancer

Bone cancer is thankfully rare and accounts for only around 1% of all types of cancer. It can be found in any part of the body but it is usually found in our long bones like our legs and arms. It is also often found in the pelvis. In order for a condition to be labeled as bone cancer, it must have started in the patient’s bone.

Bone cancer can affect people of all ages, but some types are more likely to affect people in different age groups. Treatment is sometimes available depending on the nature of the condition, and getting treatment early on in the progress of the disease will make treatment easier and more effective.
