Bone tumours

2% of all childhood cancers - an average of 5 children diagnosed each year.

Osteosarcoma is the most frequently diagnosed cancer that starts in the bone.  It is usually found in adolescents and young adults and most often affects the long bones of the upper arm (humerus) and the leg (femur and tibia).  Ewing’s sarcoma is slightly less common and most often affects the long bones, pelvis and ribs.
