Bone Cancer

Symptoms

Pain is the most common symptom of bone cancer. However, the symptoms of bone cancer may vary depending on the location and size of the cancer. Tumors that occur in or near joints may cause swelling or tenderness in the affected area. Bone cancer can also interfere with normal movements and can weaken the bones, occasionally leading to a fracture.

Other symptoms of bone cancer may include fatigue, fever, weight loss, and anemia. None of these symptoms is a sure sign of bone cancer. They may also be caused by other, less serious conditions. It is important to check with a doctor to see if your symptoms are the result of bone cancer or a less serious condition.
