What are the symptoms of bone cancer?
In many cases, bone tumors are painless, but as they grow, they may cause swelling around the affected bone and surrounding tissue. Oftentimes these symptoms will get worse at night or when the bone or limb is being used, as in when walking.
It’s also common for bone tumors to weaken the area of the bone in which they are located and cause fractures.
Other symptoms of bone cancer can include:
- Weight loss
- Numbness or tingling
- Weakness in an arm, leg, foot or hand
