Nearly all low-grade (slow-growing) chondrosarcoma tumors are cured by scraping the tumor out of your bone (curettage) and killing the surface tumor cells embedded in the bone. Low-grade tumors are less likely to spread (metastasize).

High-grade (fast-growing) chondrosarcoma tumors are aggressive and are more likely to spread. High-grade chondrosarcoma tumors need to be completely removed without cutting into your tumor. If your surgeon cuts into your tumor, cancer cells can spill. If these cells spill, there’s a risk of the cancer returning.
