Ewing's sarcoma is a rare cancerous tumor that affects people between the ages of 10 to 20. It grows in the bones, cartilage, nerves and other soft tissue around the bones. Fortunately, it has a high rate of recovery if a doctor can diagnose it early and treat it correctly. Only about 200 patients have this type of cancer each year in the United States. Slightly more than half of those patients are male. This disease is rarely found in African or Asian Americans, as it mainly affects people of Caucasian descent.
