Ewing’s sarcoma is a rare cancerous disease. It is a tumour in the bone or soft tissues. It has three common names - malignant small, round cell, and blue cell tumour. 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. About 20% of this tumour begins in the stomach, about 10% on the outside of the chest, and 10% on the head or neck. Ewing’s sarcoma occurs in teenagers and young adults, with a male/female ratio of 1:6. Most people notice a lump in their legs and arm, which grows in weeks or months.
