The Bone Cancer Research Trust is the leading charity dedicated to fighting primary bone cancer. Our mission is to save lives and improve outcomes for people affected by primary bone cancer.

We fund life-saving research, provide medical professionals, patients and their loved ones with accurate and reliable information, raise crucial awareness and deliver the UK’s first and only dedicated primary bone cancer Support and Information Service, which is viewed as a lifeline for those who are affected by primary bone cancer.

This Sarcoma Awareness Month, we aim to increase awareness of the ‘red flag’ symptoms of primary bone cancer amongst GPs. Early diagnosis of primary bone cancer could saves lives. As a healthcare professional, if you would like more vital information about primary bone cancer and the symptoms, please visit www.bcrt.org.uk/information/symptoms-of-bone-cancer.
