If you are diagnosed with Ewing’s Sarcoma (bone cancer) you will be asked to undergo chemotherapy to destroy the maximum cancerous cells. This treatment employs the use of high energy rays or particles that kill the cancer cells. Once the tumour has been shrunk, you will then undergo surgery to remove the tumour, without amputating the limb. The gaps created by the tumour removal are replaced with bone graft or synthetic prosthesis. After the surgery, you will receive another round of chemotherapy to ensure complete removal of the cancer.
In the event of cancerous spread to the circulatory or skeletal system, you might have to undertake a limb amputation surgery.
