New Delhi: Early diagnosis and treatment can help reduce the risk of bone cancer Ewing`s Sarcoma, which occurs mostly in children aged between 10 to 20 years, a doctor said here Friday."Ewing`s Sarcoma is the second-most common bone cancer in children. It accounts for one percent of all childhood cancers. It usually develops during puberty when bones are growing rapidly," Dr. Amita Mahajan, senior consultant, paediatrician, Indraprastha Apollo Hospitals, said in a statement."It is a cancerous tumour that grows in bones or soft tissue near bones and can develop anywhere in the body. It mostly affects arms, legs, ribs, spinal column and pelvis," Mahajan added.Patients and doctors often miss or overlook the early symptoms of Ewing`s Sarcoma because many maladies, ranging from infections to accidental injuries, can cause symptoms that resemble the cancer.
