Identifying possible early signs of sarcoma

There are no routine screening tests to detect the disease, so it is important to be aware of possible symptoms of bone cancer or soft tissue sarcomas. Be sure to see your physician if you are experiencing any possible bone cancer symptoms that may include:


  • Pain in the affected bone or body part, which initially may be episodic (occurring only while using that particular part of your body) before becoming constant pain, occurring even when at rest.
  • Unexplained swelling in the area of pain that may be related to the growth of a tumor.
  • Fractures that occur suddenly in the area where a person has experienced prolonged bone pain, without another obvious cause.
