Many bones start out as cartilage and later get a layer of calcium to cover it making bone. But bone it's self is still very strong it can support up to 12000 pounds per square inch. Now your toughest and largest bone the femur takes 1200 to 1800 pounds of pressure to break.
Stages of bone cancer
Stage one- All are low grade tumors that haven't spread outside of the bone
Stage two- high grade tumors but haven't spread outside the bone
Stage three- haven't spread outside of the bone but are in multiple places
Stage four-Tumors are outside of the bone and can be any grade
