Treatment of osteosarcoma in Spain

Treatment for osteosarcoma in children

According to statistics, children from 15 to 19 years are most often affected by osteosarcoma. Therefore, in adolescents (children during puberty) bone tumor is the most frequent type of cancer (more than 5%). Approximately 10-20% of children at the time of diagnosis already have metastases. More often ostearcomas metastasize to the lungs (about 70%). Children usually are diagnosed with classical osteosarcoma in 80-90% of all cases. All other types of osteosarcomas are rare (less than 5%). In terms of osteosarcoma treatment, it is necessarily to take into account the degree of its malignancy.

Children with osteosarcoma are always treated with surgery and chemotherapy. Only in very rare cases surgical intervention alone is sufficient, for example in a case of low malignant osteosarcoma. Radiation therapy is rarely used. It can be prescribed if the tumor cannot be removed completely. The course of treatment for osteosarcoma in children lasts approximately from 9 to 12 months.

In addition to Spain, there are other children's hospitals in the world which treat osteosarcoma effectively. Children's cancer centers in Israel have high success rates of treatment, as well as the largest medical centers in Turkey, Germany and Korea.

Treatment

At the early stages of osteosarcoma, doctors perform an operation to remove the tumor along with the bone. If the tumor is localized in the limb, an individual endoprosthesis is made, which is put in place of the removed bone. Before the operation, chemotherapy can be performed. Also, doctors use radiotherapy to destroy malignant cells left after the operation. Amputation of the limb is carried out only in the late stages of cancer, when the tumor has spread extensively.
