Info about Chondrosarcoma
My friend's dad was diagnosed with Chondrosarcoma today, so I am curious about the disease. I'm always curious about health-related things. And don't worry, I'm not gonna tell anyone anything, it's just for pure curiosity of my own.
His dad has grew a tumor over 20 centimeters in diameter in his hip over roughly 6 months, as far as we know. At the end, he had trouble sleeping on the size the tumor was at. He was operated on a week ago and the tumor has been removed, however it being Sarcoma, the tumor was grown with the bone.
So what kind of outcome are we looking at here? What's the mortality rate, treatment options and procedure, how long patients usually live with this diagnosis? Is there something else I may be interested in?
I have a few theories about the situation of my own, however I want the answers to be as objective as possible, so I'm not gonna post them.
