Giant cell osteosarcoma, fluorescence light micrograph. Giant cell osteosarcoma, also called giant cell tumour of the bone, is among the most malignant of cancers. It usually starts in a long bone, often near the knee. It can spread rapidly, usually to the lungs. To prevent spread, removal of part of the affected bone or even amputation of the limb may be required.
