The most common symptoms of chondrosarcoma are

  • pain in the affected area that may worsen at night or during physical activity

  • swelling in the painful area

  • a lump or mass

  • enlargement of an existing growth

  • limping

  • difficulty moving the affected limb

  • changes in urination (for pelvic tumors).

These symptoms do not necessarily mean you have cancer. Still, it is important to see a doctor if you experience any of them.
