Bone sarcoma accounts for less than 1% of all new cancer cases in the UK (2014). They account for less than 1% of the total in males, and less than 1% of the total in females.[1-4]
In 2014, there were 579 new cases of bone sarcoma in the UK: 305 (53%) in males and 274 (47%) in females, giving a male:female ratio of around 11:10.[1-4] The

For bone sarcoma, like most cancer types, differences between countries largely reflect risk factor prevalence in years past.
