What Is Ewing Sarcoma?
Ewing sarcoma is a type of cancer that forms in bone or soft tissue. It is also called peripheral primitive neuroectodermal tumor (pPNET).
Ewing sarcoma may be found in the bones of the legs, arms, feet, hands, chest, pelvis, spine, or skull. Ewing sarcoma also may be found in the soft tissue of the trunk, arms, legs, head and neck, abdominal cavity, or other areas. Ewing sarcoma is most common in adolescents and young adults.
