The topic Juxtacortical Osteosarcoma you are seeking is a synonym, or alternative name, or is closely related to the medical condition Parosteal Osteosarcoma.
- Osteosarcoma forms a class of highly-cancerous, high-mortality, bone tumor. After multiple myeloma, it is the second-most common primary tumor of the bones
- Parosteal Osteosarcoma is a slow-growing, rare bone tumor arising from the cortical surface of the bone. Hence, these are malignant bone tumors
- The tumor occurs over the metaphyseal region, especially the long bones, near the knees. The most common location is the posterior aspect of distal femur (thigh bone), in approximately 70% of the cases
- Parosteal Osteosarcoma presents as a mass with signs and symptoms that include pain and decreased joint movement
- The exact cause of the condition is unknown and presently, it is not possible to prevent Parosteal Osteosarcoma occurrence
- A treatment of this bone tumor may involve surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy. The prognosis of Parosteal Osteosarcoma depends on the stage of cancer; higher grade osteosarcomas indicate a poorer prognosis
Osteosarcomas are classified in several different ways. They may be classified based on their cause/origin, location, or even based on certain diagnostic findings.
Based on where they occur, Osteosarcoma is classified as Medullary Osteosarcoma (occurring in the bone cavity) and Surface Osteosarcoma (occurring on the bone surface).
- Medullary Osteosarcomas are of several different types, and these include:
- Conventional Osteosarcoma
- Osteosarcoma of Jaw Bones
- Post-Radiation Sarcoma
- Osteosarcoma arising in Paget's Disease of Bone
- Osteosarcoma in other Benign Conditions
- Telangiectatic Osteosarcoma
- Small Cell Osteosarcoma
- Low-Grade Osteosarcoma
- Multicentric Osteosarcoma
- Surface Osteosarcomas are of several different types, and these include:
- Parosteal Osteosarcoma
- Periosteal Osteosarcoma
- High-Grade Surface Osteosarcoma
