It is important to understand the difference between a benign and malignant bone tumor. Benign bone tumors are not sarcomas. Benign bone tumors do not spread to other tissues or organs, and are not life-threatening. They are generally removed by surgery if there are certain symptoms accompanying them. Again, these are not malignant.

Chondrosarcoma is common to humans as well as animals. All patients are not the same in how they are affected. The surgical treatment methods of their doctors are not always the same, either. Each case has to be considered on it's own specific circumstances

Radiation and Chemotherapy are not common methods of treatment for Chondrosarcoma. Only rarely are radiation and chemotherapy used on a patient with Chondrosarcoma. The decision to do so, depends on the advanced staging of the tumor and the type. More aggressive forms of Chondrosarcoma are given the designation of Stage III and Stage IV. If it is considered to be an aggressive or advanced chondrosarcoma, chemotherapy or radiation may be considered as part of the treatment plan.

Chondrosarcomas are the third most common primary malignancy of bone after myeloma and osteosarcoma [2]. They account for 20 to 27 percent of primary malignant osseous neoplasms [3]

This review provides an overview of the histopathology, classification, diagnostic procedures, and therapy of skeletal chondrosarcoma. Chondrosarcomas that arise de novo are primary chondrosarcomas, whereas chondrosarcomas developing superimposed on pre-existing benign cartilage neoplasms such as enchondromas or osteochondromas are referred to as secondary chondrosarcomas.

here are three additional types of chondrosarcoma. Mesenchymal chondrosarcoma is a rare variant with a bimorphic histologic picture of low grade cartilaginous cells and hypercellular small, uniform, and undifferentiated cells that resemble Ewing's sarcoma. Mesenchymal chondrosarcoma has a predilection for the spine, ribs and jaw and it presents in the third decade. It is more common in females and can grow exceptionally large.

Chondrosarcomas are cartilaginous cancer tumors and consist of abnormal bone and cartilage growth. These are the second-most common primary bone tumors and tend to progress slowly. Primary chondrosarcomas usually develop from previously normal bone tissue. Secondary chondrosarcomas develop from benign enchondromas or osteochondromas.
