Answer by  hartford (506)

Bone cancer has three stages. In stage one, abnormal cells spread from inside the bone. In stage 2 the cancer advances but hasn't spread. Increasing localized pain characterizes Stage 1 to 2. In stage 3 the cancer spreads to other organs causing more pain, weight loss, fevers and chills.

Cancers are usually staged using Roman numerals I-IV. Specific to bone cancer: Stage I- Has not spread outside of the bone. Stage II-Limited to the bone but, more aggressive. Stage III-Spread to places throughout, the bone. Stage IV-Has spread to areas outside the bone. Letters TMN are combined with numbers to denote grade of cancer tumor and severity of disease.

Stages 1&2:the cancer hasn't spread but grows inside the bone trying to go through the bone wall. Stage 3:the cancer has already spread.You experience swelling,tenderness of bones or persistent pain.
