These include: Chondrosarcomas behave in different ways, but many are low grade tumors.
A part of the tumor appears to be a low to intermediate grade cartilage tumor, and it is located close to a high grade non-cartilage kind of sarcoma.
People with chondrosarcoma usually do not feel sick.
They may be able to feel a boney bump, and most patients ultimately will have pain, swelling, or limited movement that is caused by the tumor.
A bone tumor is often first discovered on x-ray after a physical exam.
Unfortunately, these treatments have not been proven to be effective, and there is no standard protocol to follow.
Prognosis statistics are based on the study of groups of chondrosarcoma patients.

Sometimes chondrosarcoma grows on an otherwise healthy bone, and sometimes it grows on a benign bone tumor (an enchondroma or osteochondroma).
There are several types of chondrosarcoma that are named based on the way that they appear under the microscope.
In intermediate grade tumors, cells still look like cartilage cells, but they show more malignant changes.
