Caption: MODEL RELEASED. Bone cancer surgery scar. Stapled scar on the upper arm of a 51 year old man immediately after having surgery to remove the humerus (upper arm bone) for myxoid chondrosarcoma. Chondrosarcomas are rare malignant (cancerous) tumours found in the cartilage within or on the surface of the long bones. About 25 per cent of cancers originating in the bone are chondrosarcomas. Myxoid chondrosarcomas are more aggressive than the most common type of chondrosarcoma (intramedullary chondrosarcoma) and does not respond well to radiotherapy or chemotherapy, so full bone removal is necessary.
