Chondrosarcoma is a type of ailment categorised as a sarcoma. It basically affects the bones and joints of the patient. This is a rare form of cancer that gives rise to bone tumours. Ollier’s disease and Wilms’ tumour are some of the causes for this condition. The symptoms at most may include the feeling of a bone protruding like a lump.
HOW IS CHONDROSARCOMA DIAGNOSED?
Oncologists diagnose the condition with the help of physical examination followed by an X-ray. Imaging tests like bone scan, CT scan, PET scan and MRI help in establishing whether the tumor is malignant or benign. The final confirmation of diagnosis is through biopsy of the tumor cells.
HOW IS CHONDROSARCOMA TREATED?
The treatment is done at specialized hospitals known as the Sarcoma centers. Surgical removal of the part of the body affected (amputation of arm, leg, etc.) is necessary in some cases.
DID YOU KNOW?
In general, low grade tumors have an excellent prognosis, with a small chance of recurrence and virtually no chance of disease spread. Risks increase as the grade of the tumor increases, with de-differentiated tumors having the highest risk of recurrence and metastasis and a poor survival rate.
