Chondrosarcoma Treatment

Specific treatment for chondrosarcoma will be determined by your physician based on:

  • your age, overall health, and medical history
  • extent of the disease
  • your tolerance for specific medications, procedures, and therapies
  • expectation for the course of the disease
  • your opinion or preference

The goal for treatment of chondrosarcoma is to remove the mass and reduce the likelihood that it will return. Close follow-up with your physician may be necessary. Treatment may include:

  • surgery (to remove the tumor)
  • physical therapy (to regain strength and use of the affected area after surgery)
  • chemotherapy Chemotherapy, although is not the primary treatment, may be required if the cancer has spread to other areas of the body.
