Brief Answer:
hi and welcome to XXXXXXX

Detailed Answer:
No,this is absolutely not true. rheumatoid arthritis may have similar symptoms such as nine cancer so it can be misdiagnosed but rheumatoid arthrosis and bone cancer are not related.
there are some studies which shows some that people with ra may have increased risk of lymphomas but this is also just minor risk. Wish you good health. Feel free to ask
