Ewing's sarcoma. I know it must be scary, but be positive. Ewing sarcoma is a cancer that grows in bone or in soft tissue around bone. It is most often found in the “long bones, ” such as the thigh, shin or upper arm. It can also affect the muscle and tissues around the tumor. But rest assured that there is hope: treatments for ewing sarcoma have improved dramatically in recent years.
Rare cancer. It is a rare cancer that usually arises in a bone of a teen or young adult. Sometimes it occurs in soft tissues or in people of other age. It is treated with chemotherapy for best chance of cure. Surgery and/or radiation are also given. With modern treatments, the chances of cure are good. Amputation is almost never needed. Best of luck!
