In brief: Depends on a number

Of factors. Discuss with your team of docs (orthopod, oncologist, pcp & any other specialitist that you may need).
Chemo/radiation are generally best options, with some surgical procedure to stabilize a broken or a bone that is weakened (but not yet broken). The idea is to improve the quality of life for as long as possible. Survival is dependent on cancer type and its response to the meds..

In brief: 30-40% alive at five

Depends on cell type, extent, age and other personal risk factors most results are tabulated at five year survival from diagnosis confirmation.
