Bone Cancer Symptoms

Bone cancer symptoms vary from person to person. They also depend on the size and location of the cancer.

If you have symptoms, they may include:

  • Pain
  • Swelling or tenderness in or near a joint
  • Difficulty with normal movement
  • Fatigue
  • Fever
  • Weight loss
  • Anemia (low red blood cell count)
  • Fractures

Having one or more of these symptoms does not mean you have bone cancer. However, it is important to discuss any symptoms with your doctor, since they may indicate other health problems.
