The information on this page is about Ewing sarcoma and osteosarcoma. If you have a different type of bone cancer and want to know more, please contact us.
The three main treatments for bone cancer are:
- chemotherapy (chemo)
We have more information about these different types of treatment, written for people of all ages.
Most people have a combination of these treatments. Your doctors will plan your treatment based on:
- the type of bone cancer you have
- where the cancer is
- the stage of the cancer (whether it has spread outside the bone)
- how fast the cancer has grown.
If you have any questions about your treatment, ask your doctor or nurse. They will help you understand what it involves.
You may have the chance to take part in a clinical trial. If your doctor thinks there is a trial that is suitable for you, they will discuss this with you. You will be able to talk about it with your specialist and family before you decide what to do. It will be your decision whether or not to take part in a trial.
