What Is Ewing Family Of Tumors? TOPICS

What are the key statistics about Ewing tumors?

About 1% of all childhood tumors are Ewing tumors. About 225 children and teens are diagnosed with Ewing tumors in North America each year.

Most Ewing tumors occur in teens, but they can also affect younger children, as well as adults (mainly in their 20s and 30s).

Slightly more males than females develop these cancers. These tumors are much more common among whites, either non-Hispanic or Hispanic. This disease is very rare among African Americans, and it also seldom occurs in other racial groups.

Survival statistics for these tumors are discussed in the section “Survival rates for Ewing tumors, by stage.”
