Causes, Risk Factors, and Prevention TOPICS

Can Ewing tumors be prevented?

The risk of many adult cancers can be reduced with certain lifestyle changes (such as staying at a healthy weight or quitting smoking), but at this time there are no known ways to prevent most cancers in children.

The only known risk factors for Ewing tumors (age, gender, and race/ethnicity) can’t be changed. There are no known lifestyle-related or environmental causes of Ewing tumors, so at this time there is no way to protect against these cancers.
