Ewing's sarcoma in children

It is a cancer found in the bones and soft tissue. Ewing's sarcoma is the second most common cancer in children, and normally occurs between ten and twenty years old. It is also more common in males than in females. Ewing's sarcoma and primitive neuroectodermal tumours (PNET) are cancers encompassing different types of malignant tumours that share a common chromosomic abnormality. Ewing’s tumours are made up of small undifferentiated cells and tend to be most commonly found in the long bones of the leg or arm, in the flat bones of the ribs and pelvis, or in the spine. They may also occur in any other bone or in soft tissue.
