How is a chondrosarcoma diagnosed?
Diagnostic procedures for chondrosarcoma are used to determine the exact type of tumor your child has and whether the tumor has spread. This may include:
Once chondrosarcoma has been diagnosed, the tumor is staged. This process shows how far the tumor has spread from its original location. The stage of the tumor and grade of the tumor (how aggressive the tumor is) suggests which form of treatment is most appropriate, and gives us an idea of the prognosis.
