In brief: Two questions

Out of a million people, about 25 will get a primary bone cancer in any particular year. This means it's common enough to consider if you have symptoms.
I see you are on the oral contraceptive pill, which offers several health advantages. Your personal history -- especially if you're a smoker -- determines the risk of blood clots, which are uncommon but very dangerous.
