Chondrosarcoma Staging

Chondrosarcoma is described as either localized or metastatic.

Localized Chondrosarcoma

Localized chondrosarcoma has not spread out of the bone where the cancer started. There may be one or more areas of cancer in the bone that can be removed during surgery.

Metastatic Chondrosarcoma

Metastatic chondrosarcoma has spread from the bone in which the cancer began to other parts of the body. The cancer most often spreads to the lungs. It may also spread to other bones.
