Bone tumours can be classified as malignant or benign. A distinction is also made between primary, i.e. arising from the cartilage or bony tissue, and secondary, generally metastatic (spread) growths from other malignant tumours.

Primary bone tumours are, presumably due to bone growth, particularly common in childhood and are usually only diagnosed when pain suddenly occurs.
