Malignant Bone Tumors Malignant bone tumors are a group of lesions that vary in their tissue makeup and behavior and range from locally aggressive tumors that usually do not metastasize to high grade sarcomas with a poor prognosis. They affect all age groups and all bony sites. Diagnosis of the specific type of malignant bone tumor is critical since the treatment for each type varies. Treatment is extremely aggressive in nature usually involving one or more of the following: chemotherapy, radiation therapy, surgery (resection) and bone marrow (stem cell) transplants.
