Ewing’s Information

scientifically reliable sources

We aim to provide reliable information about Ewing’s sarcoma.

The internet is a vast resource and we share the concerns of other charities that patients and families may find unreliable and misleading information that has been posted by unknown sources. Therefore, we’ve compiled information from scientifically reliable sources to ensure you find reliable information about:

What it is & what causes it?

Ewing’s sarcoma is a type of primary bone cancer. As the causes of Ewing’s sarcoma are not fully understood, we don’t know how to prevent it from happening.


Symptoms & what to look for

The most common symptoms of Ewing’s sarcoma are pain and swelling at the tumour site. These symptoms are often attributed to other causes such as injuries.


Diagnosis & treatment

Together with scans and biopsy results, the MDT will determine whether a patient has Ewing’s sarcoma or not.


Further info & support

Since we started our charity, we have sought to maximise the contribution we can make by working in collaboration with like-minded people and groups who share our goals.


We’ve published this information on separate pages because some visitors to our site don’t want to see some information.

We feel it is important that patients and families remember that statistics are not specific to patients, and that every Ewing’s sarcoma patient is unique, with their own individual circumstances. ​As statistics can only ever tell part of the story and can often be misleading, we have decided not to publish any statistics that might be available from various sources within the UK.

We welcome feedback on the information that we produce, so if you wish to let us have your views please send your comments to us at: trustees@ewingssarcomart.onmicrosoft.com
