How Ewing Sarcoma is Treated

Specific treatment for Ewing sarcoma will be determined by your child's physician based on:
  • your child's age, overall health, and medical history
  • extent of the disease
  • your child's tolerance of specific medications, procedures, or therapies
  • expectations for the course of the disease
  • your opinion or preference
Treatment may include one, or more, of the following:
  • surgery
  • chemotherapy
  • radiation therapy
  • amputation
  • resections for metastases (e.g., pulmonary resections of cancer cells in the lung)
  • rehabilitation including physical and occupational therapy, and psychosocial adaptation
  • prosthesis fitting and training
  • supportive care (for the side effects of treatment)
  • antibiotics (to prevent and treat infections)
  • continual follow-up care (to determine response to treatment, detect recurrent disease, and manage late effects of treatment)
