Signs and Symptoms
Pain is the most common symptom of bone cancer. Symptoms 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 also can interfere with normal movements and can weaken the bones, occasionally leading to a fracture. Other symptoms may include fatigue, fever, weight loss and anemia.
