Transcript of Osteosarcoma
Through a mutant bone cell that multiplies and becomes a tumor
Normally is contracted through mutant osteoblasts cells (cells that make growing bone)
Osteosarcoma solely targets the skeletal system
The mutant cells take over a certain area of the skeletal stystem
The cells continue to multiply, therefore growing into a tumor
Osteosarcoma can be treated by the removal of the tumor
It is usually proceeded with the amputation of the affected limb or by using chemotherapy
In most cases, both chemotherapy and surgery are needed

Osteosarcoma otherwise known as osteogenic sarcoma is the most common type of cancer that develops in bone
It can occur to both children and adults but mostly to children
For children it normally occurs to them when they are taller than the average height of other children their age
Osteosarcoma usually develops in areas where the bone is growing quickly, like the ends of long bones
distal femur (the lower part of the thigh bone)
proximal tibia (the upper part of the shinbone)
How is it contracted?
What are the effects of osteosarcoma on the body?
The bone affected is weaker than the rest and may fracture
Pain and swelling will occur in affected area
What's Happening To My Cells Then?
Terry Fox had osteosarcoma.
We chose to study this cancer because one of our favourite characters in a book called The Fault In Our Stars was effected and died from Osteosarcoma.
thanks for watching and listening to our presentation!

When a cell's genes are mutated it makes the cell unable to fix DNA damage and turns into a mutant cell that leads to uncontrollable cell growth
The multiplying cells merge and form lumps and or masses of tissue called "tumors"
