Ewing sarcoma is an extremely rare form of bone or soft tissue cancer that makes up 1 percent of pediatric cancers. Only 225 children and teens are diagnosed with Ewing sarcoma each year in the U.S., according to the American Cancer Society. It is even more rarely diagnosed in adults.
The cancer is most commonly found in the bones or soft tissue of the thigh, upper arm, ribs or shoulder blade.
