Bone cancers can be primary or secondary| cancers. The two are quite different and this section is only about primary bone cancer. Your doctor will tell you whether your cancer started in a bone (primary bone cancer) or started elsewhere in your body and spread to the bones (secondary bone cancer). Secondary bone cancer is much more common than primary bone cancer, and your treatment will depend on where the cancer started.
