Ewing's Sarcoma Cancer

A type of bone cancer, Ewing's sarcoma most often affects people between the ages of 10 and 20. In a person with this condition, cancer cells first form in the immature nerve tissue in the bone marrow, usually in the pelvis, upper legs, and ribs.
 
The most common symptom of this condition is pain. However, other signs and symptoms can occur, such as swelling or tenderness in the affected area, fatigue, and fever. Treatment options for Ewing's sarcoma can include surgery, radiation therapy, and chemotherapy.
