Well...pain...: ....But there are so many other causes for bone pain that i can't see why you would think it's an ewing's or any other sarcoma for that matter. Not that it can't be but it's not likely. See your doc and let him/her examine you and do x-rays if needed. Hope it's all well.

Sarcomas are rare: While Ewing's sarcoma is usually painful, it's an extremely rare tumor, so the chances of having it are very low. About 3 in a million people get it and usually in their teenage years. Most bone pain has other causes. The usual symptoms are pain and a mass (swelling).
