What Are The Odds Of Winning A Battle Against Bone Cancer?

Postby Carolos » Thu Mar 02, 2017 3:28 am

Someone very close to me has bone cancer, and I was wondering if it is really serious. Though all cancers are.

Didn't know there was such thing as bone cancer.

I'd Imagen its pretty good odds of survival, cause cancer suffers generally do survive (That is stat wise)

it can be a hard one

however dont give up on them and keep hope

no one is dead till they are dead

so many people give up when doctors dont know everything

God knows all

this people will be lifted up for healing prayer

God Bless you both

It depends on the form (osteo, chrondro, ewing's?) and the stage, or how advanced the cancer is. Some forms / stages have a 90% five-year survival, others only about 30%.

it depends on the type of bone cancer. The age of the person, where the bone cancer is, if it has spread to other tissues, and how advanced it was once it was discovered.

The survival rate for many cancers is high. Mine was caught early and with amputation and Chemo the cancer went away and never came back. 16 years cancer free this April 20th.

I had osteosarcoma just below the knee.
