In brief: Not really.
Unless your family has a documented history of this, and a particular mutation has been identified in other family members, there is not an established test for this condition.

In brief: OS and gene
Some of the sarcomas can run in families and clusters.
Some of them can present with other malignancies in family. I think gene testing for p53 mutation can be done if there are other types if cancers besides os. There is no specific genetic test for os.
