In brief: Yes. It is a

Disease affecting young men, "always" under 30, teens most common, tending to arise in bones, and metastases to other bones and lung.
When caught in the originating bone, usually with pain, or even fracture, before metastasis, it can be cured. Once metastatic, cure is not likely. Ergo, it can be fatal.

In brief: Yes

The prognosis for this very aggressive cancer found mostly in young people has improved a great deal with combined modality therapy (surgery, radiation therapy, and chemotherapy) but unfortunately still has a high fatality rate.
The prognosis is better with early diagnosis, like most cancers.
