Was your relative's bone cancer the primary cancer, then it metastasized to her ovarias (which would then be the secondary cancer)?

Here is a link from the American Cancer Society (ACS) on "How is Ovarian Cancer Staged?", as there are numerous factors, including if one or both ovaries are cancerous, if other lymph nodes are involved, etc.

This is the link from the ACS on "How is Bone Cancer Staged?", and to answer your question, it also depends on many factors. You mentioned that the cancer has spread, but it also depends on how large the tumor(s) are, and where in the bone they are located. There are different types of bone cancer, that you can read at the National Cancer Institute site.

Once you determine what stages the cancers are in, you will have more information to research treatment strategies. We are here to help, if you would like.

I'm sorry I can not provide more information, only resources, but there are so many factors that are unknown. Again, please let us know what you find from reading the links provided, and we can help you research information based on your relative's current conditions. Hang in there.

How is your relative feeling? What have the doctors told her, and what type of treatment(s) is she undergoing?
