In addition to the symptoms mentioned, patients will frequenctly notice a lump in the area of the tumor. Most common locations are around the knee and the shoulder.

In brief: Nonspecific

Presenting symptoms are often nonspecific at first and include pain that may be intermittent and then progressive, swelling / mass in the area of the involved bone.
Symptoms often develop over weeks to months before patients seek medical attention. Infrequently patients may present with a fracture through the tumor/ involved bone.
