Bone cancer, metastatic or recurrent
Also known as:
Metastatic bone cancer, Recurrent bone cancer, Metastatic osteosarcoma, Recurrent osteosarcoma, Metastatic MFH of bone, Recurrent MFH of bone, Metastatic malignant fibrous histiocytoma of bone, Recurrent malignant fibrous histiocytoma of bone
Metastatic osteosarcoma or MFH has spread from the bone in which the cancer began to other parts of the body. The cancer most often spreads to the lungs. It may also spread to other bones. Recurrent osteosarcoma and malignant fibrous histiocytoma (MFH) of bone are cancers that have recurred (come back) after being treated. The cancer may come back in the bone or in other parts of the body. Osteosarcoma and MFH most often recur in the lung, bone or both. When osteosarcoma recurs, it is usually within 18 months after treatment is completed.
