Bone Cancer News and Research

RSS
Bone cancer may be of two basic types 1. Primary bone cancer - cancer that begins in the bone, 2. Secondary bone cancer - cancer that begins elsewhere in the body (for example lungs, breast, liver etc.) that has spread to the bone. Primary bone cancer is a rare form of cancer - about 500 cases are diagnosed in the UK each year (only about one in every 500 cancers).
