It is only possible to detect a so-called osteosarcoma at the early stages. A classical sarcoma does not give enough clues, so the person may live without knowing he or she has this disease. Even though no special examinations can define the problem on the first stages, it is possible to figure it out when the initial symptoms appear.
The recommended health examinations involve taking a random sample of cells. The cells should be from the affected area (lump or tumor). The test is called biopsy. CT and MRI are also helpful. Finally, do a bone scan to find out if you have another type of this cancer. If the doctor carries out the expected diagnosis, hurry up to treat it!
