Chondrosarcoma is a malignant tumor that originates in the mesenchymal cells of (cells that produce) cartilage. Chondrosarcoma most commonly affects the medullary cavity of the pelvis, proximal humerus, and femur. Symptoms of chondrosarcoma include pain, swelling, weight loss, and pathological fractures. Chondrosarcoma is diagnosed through physical examination, imaging tests (such as X-rays, MRI scans, or CT scans), and tissue biopsy.
