Sharing this very interesting, latest development by University of East Anglia.

Researchers at University Of East Anglia, Norwich, UK, hope a simple blood test could allow them to catch the disease quicker.
Bone cancer is typically more aggressive than others, with some forms resistant to chemotherapy and radiotherapy, leaving limb amputation as the only option. Even with this drastic surgery, recurrence of the tumour is extremely common and overall survival rates are low- with only 10 percent of patients living a year in the most aggressive cases. Survival rates have not improved in the past 25 years.
The researchers are focusing on primary bone cancer, which means cancer that has started in the bone, rather than secondary bone cancer. They are currently studying Chondrosarcoma, an incredibly unpredictable form of bone cancer that can develop at any age.
