EWING SARCOMA

Ewing Sarcoma is a rare type of cancer, common in children and teenagers. It most commonly occurs in long bones and extra-osseous tissues.It has high susceptibility of proliferation to other bones, bone marrow, and even vital organs such as brain,lungs, heart, and kidneys. The exact cause of Ewing's sarcoma is still not clear. It isn't inherited, but it can be related to non-inherited changes in the DNA in chromosomes 11 and 12. Chemotherapy is the first choice of treatment. However in the case of severity, amputatation of an arm or leg is mandatory. Image via:https://www.instagram.com/p/CI-kC4-hoZT/?igshid=7r08zqshgmex
