Childhood Cancer

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. View the 2020 Impact Report.
