Treatment for Metastatic Sarcoma in Children

Sarcoma is a relatively rare type of cancer that grows in connective tissue. There are more than 50 kinds of sarcoma, but they can be categorized into two main groups: osteosarcoma (bone) and soft tissue sarcoma, such as Ewing sarcoma, which affects the muscle and cartilage around the bone.

Osteosarcoma is the most common type of bone cancer in children and young adults. Typically, it occurs during the teenage years. Ewing sarcoma, which is very rare, is detected most commonly in adolescents between the ages of 10 and 20. If the sarcoma spreads to another organ in the body from where it began, it is called metastatic sarcoma. Medical treatments are administered to relieve the symptoms and slow the spread of metastatic cancer.
