Chondrosarcoma is a rare, malignant tumor that affects the bones and joints. It is diagnosed in about 600 patients each year in the United States – most frequently in men between the age of 20 and 60 years old. The disease often begins in the bones of the arms, legs or pelvis, but can be found in any part of the body that contains cartilage. Common symptoms include headaches and vision or hearing problems.
