What is the survival rate of bone cancer?

Bone Cancer is the cancer that begins in the bone. This is cancer that occurs initially in another organ and then spreads to bone tissue. Bone cancer is caused by a problem with the cells that make bone. Bone tumors occur most commonly in children and adolescents. It is less common in older adults.

Some common symptoms of bone cancer are:
– weight loss
– night sweats
– chills
– fever
– nausea
– increased fatigue
– anemia

Bone Cancer Survival Rate:
The bone cancer survival rate depends on factors:
– how long a person has had cancer.
– whether it has spread.
– the relative survival rate measures the survival of bone cancer patients in comparison to the general population which is required to estimate the cancer’s effect.
– it is based on large groups of people; the bone cancer survival rate cannot be used to predict the next stage of a particular patient.

The bone cancer survival rate indicates:
– the percentage of people with a certain type.
– stage of bone cancer.
– patients who survive the disease for a specific period of time after their diagnosis.
– statistics refer to the 5-year bone cancer survival rate.
– this is the percentage of people who are alive 5 years after a bone cancer diagnosis.
– depending upon whether they have few or no signs or symptoms of bone cancer, are free of disease, or are having treatment for bone cancer.
– the bone cancer survival rate is based on large groups of people.
– it cannot be used to predict what will happen to a particular patient.
– responses to treatment vary greatly.

Factors Influencing the Bone Cancer Survival Rate:
– The size, the location, and the type of bone cancer.
– The bone cancer stage (how far the cancer has spread).
– How long the patient has had symptoms.
– How much of the cancer is taken out by surgery and/or killed by chemotherapy.
– The patient’s age, blood, and other test results.
– The patient’s general health.

Overall Bone Cancer Survival Rate:
The 5-year relative bone cancer survival rates by race and sex were:
– 67.5 percent for Caucasian men.
– 72.1 percent for Caucasian women.
– 70.0 percent for African-American men.
– 68.4 percent for African-American women.

Based on historical data:
– 41 percent of bone and joint cancer cases are diagnosed while the cancer is still confined to the primary site (localized stage).
– 36 percent of bone and joint cancer cases are diagnosed after the cancer has spread to regional lymph nodes or directly beyond the primary site.
– 15 percent of bone and joint cancer cases are diagnosed after the cancer has already metastasized (distant stage).
– 8 percent of bone and joint cancer cases had staging information that was unknown.

The corresponding 5-year relative bone cancer survival rates were:
– 84.5 percent for localized.
– 69.4 percent for regional.
– 30.6 percent for distant.
– 62.2 percent for unstaged.
