Bone and Soft Tissue Sarcoma

In honour of Ninon Bourque


If your cancer started in another site (lung, breast, bowel, etc.) and later spread to the bones, then you do not have “bone cancer”.  You have bone “metastases", and the information below does not apply to you. Please go to the (lung, breast, colon, etc.) pages for information that applies to your diagnosis.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What is bone cancer versus bone mets?

A: Bone cancer happens when normal cells in the bone change into abnormal cells and grow out of control. Bone mets (metastasis) is when the cancer started in another part of the body but spread to the bones.  If the cancer started in the lung or breast, it is called metastatic lung or breast cancer.
