Bone cancer surviaval rate does doesn't depend on age. It is dependent on the location of the cancer, what stage it is in, has it spread and the patients general health. It also depends on how much of the cancer was killed by treatment.

Well bone cancer is a tough one but if you have a good doctor and get the right therapy then chances of survival increase.

Any age is bad for cancer but with bone cancer age doesn't matter. Positioning of the Cancer does. If the Cancer seeps into the bone marrow it won't matter what age you are. The survival rate is poor.

Survival rate on bone cancer can not be determine along by the age of the patient. Health aspect of the patient is also considered as well as the type of bone cancer and as to how far it has spread. Studies showed that about 65% survival rate has been noticed after 5 years.
