Bone cancer

Bone cancer is a rare cancer that starts in the cells and tissues of bones. It is also called primary bone cancer or sarcoma of the bone.

There are about 30 different types of bone cancer. The most common ones are:

  • osteosarcoma
  • chondrosarcoma
  • Ewing sarcoma.
The Cancer Institute NSW recommends that all people with cancer have their care overseen by a multidisciplinary team (MDT).

In addition, people with some cancers may need complex treatment and should be seen at a specialist centre.

Use our Canrefer website to find multidisciplinary teams and specialist centres in NSW and ACT.

Being diagnosed with cancer can be stressful and confusing. Having the right information can help you talk to your cancer care team and be more involved in your care.
