What if the cancer comes back?

For many people with early-stage bone cancer, it will never come back after treatment.

If the cancer does come back in the lungs or in a bone, it is sometimes possible to have an operation to remove it. This would be done to try to cure the cancer. Chemotherapy may be given before and after the operation.

If it isn’t possible to cure the cancer, treatments such as chemotherapy and radiotherapy may be given to control the cancer for as long as possible and to help relieve any symptoms.
