Ewing’s sarcoma occurs in common areas like the pelvis, the femur, the humerus, the ribs, and collarbone. A common genetic locus is responsible for a large percentage of Ewing’s sarcoma, and are grouped together as Ewing family of tumours. These tumours are not normally painful, but can hurt in certain cases. Sarcoma also grows in other parts of the body like in the back of the abdomen. It can cause pain in the stomach, as well as blockage and bleeding.
