Osteosarcoma cluster investigated in Oregon
February 27, 2013 (WLS) -- The Environmental Protection Agency says they will investigate five reported cases of rare bone cancer in Oregon.
The cases were diagnosed within a two-square mile area of West Salem, about 60 miles south of Portland.
All of the cases of osteosarcoma have been diagnosed in middle and high school students. The EPA says they'll assess the schools, a city park and a nearby ball field. It typically takes up to six months to conduct a preliminary assessment, but the agency says they're trying to expedite that.
