Bone cancer is believed to be very rare. In 2010, it was estimated by National Cancer Institute that there were 2650 new cases of bone cancer in the United States. This was mainly in children. After this, it was found that bone cancer is also common among females. The symptoms of bone cancer in women include:

# Pain

The pain associated with bone cancer is usually very dull and begins very gradually. The pain will be very noticeable at night. It has been said by many doctors and orthopedic surgeons specializing in oncology that many bone cancer patients associate this pain with a sprain or a muscle pull. The 20 year old age group is affected a lot due to the most common cancer known as the Osteosarcoma. There are many fast growing cancers due to which severe pain can be caused. Doctors list high-grade Chondrosarcoma as a tumor due to which excruciating pain can be caused.

# Mass

According to the university of Pennsylvania, the occurrence of many cancers is found near a joint of the legs or the arms. Abnormal bone is produced by Osteosarcoma. Abnormal cartilage is produced by Chondrosarcoma. These cartilages usually expand out of the bones. Soft tissue swelling is included in the palpable mass around the bone tumor. This is one of the most common symptoms of bone cancer in women. Bone cancers are commonly found in the ribs, pelvis and spine. It is very hard to feel the masses in these areas.

# Fracture

According to the university of Pennsylvania, it is said that occurrence of fracture without being preceded by pain is very rare. On X-ray, the fracture is mainly through an abnormal area of the bone. The most common cause of fracture through a bone tumor is the metastatic breast cancer. When a fracture is fixed, the type of cancer can be determined by a biopsy.

# Urinary symptoms

The bone cancer can greatly affect the bladder and the bowel function in women. The occurrence of Chondrosarcoma is very commonly found in people above 60 years of age. The pelvis bones are affected. If there is a fairly large growth of tumor, there will a constant urge to urinate frequently. However, urine will be obstructed altogether. The nerves are pressed due to bone cancer tumor in the spine. These nerves cause bowel or urinary incontinence.

Thus, knowing about the symptoms of bone cancer in women is very essential. This will help in taking the right kind of treatment.
