Ewing’s Sarcoma Cancer Treatment?
The doctor with what stage of sarcoma was amputated, is there any other way..
Thanks for the question. What do you mean by Ewing's sarcoma? Ewing's sarcoma is a rare type of cancer that can grow in bone or in the tissues around bones such as cartilage and nerve tissue. The exact cause of the appearance of this cancer is not known with certainty but is thought to be due to mutations in connective tissue, especially bone. This cancer often occurs at the age of 10-20 years. This cancer is divided into 4 stages:
stage 1, if the cancer cells are still small and only found in the area stage 2, if the cancer cells have not spread to surrounding tissues but the size of the cancer cells have enlarged, greater than stage 1 stage 3, if the cancer cells have invaded other surrounding tissues bone stage 4, if cancer cells have invaded other parts of the body Amputation of the affected body part will usually be carried out by a doctor if the cancer cells have spread to surrounding tissues so as not to spread further and aim to save lives. If these cancer cells have not spread to other surrounding tissues, then the treatment that can be done is chemotherapy, radiotherapy or surgery which aims to only remove cancer cells. Please discuss the handling of the patient with the doctor who treats the patient so that the doctor can provide a better explanation regarding the selection and purpose of the treatment.
Hope this information is useful.
