Childhood Osteosarcoma Symptoms
The most common symptom of childhood osteosarcoma is a constant dull ache in the bone or joint, often increasing at night when sleeping. The pain tends to increase over time rather than subside.
Other symptoms may include:
- Swelling, lump or tenderness in or near a joint
- Difficulty with normal movement; limping
- Weight loss
- Anemia (low red blood cell count)
