In brief: Variable

You may be referring to either myeloma or bone cancers such as ostesarcoma.
Myeloma is often called bone cancer but is actually a blood cancer associated with painful bone lesions, low blood counts, renal problems and increased infections. Osteosarcomas are bone cancers of long bones, common in children/young adults associated with painful growths that can be treated successfully.
