Ewing Sarcoma

Ewing sarcoma is a cancerous bone tumor that typically originates in the long bones of the arms and legs, the pelvis or the chest. While it is typically a bone tumor, Ewing sarcoma can develop in the soft tissue surrounding the bones as well. It is often diagnosed during puberty, when the bones of the body are rapidly growing.
