Ewing Sarcoma – Symptoms , Diagnoses & Treatment in Ayurveda


Ewing Sarcoma 1

Ewing’s Sarcoma is a rare form of cancerous tumor that grows in the bones or soft tissues around the bones such as cartilage or nerves. This cancer mostly begins in the long bones of pelvis, legs, arms, chest wall, spine, and skull.  It can spread on to the lungs, heart, kidneys, bones and bone marrow.

It is common in people between the age group 10 to 20 and more often affects males. It develops during puberty when the bones grow rapidly. It is not a genetic disorder and has no link to the lifestyle or environmental issues.

There are three types of Ewing Sarcoma: Bone tumor, soft tissue tumor, and PNET or Peripheral primitive neuroectodermal tumor depending on where the tumor is formed.

Bone tumor forms in the bones like thigh bones, pelvis, ribs or shoulder blades.

Soft tissue tumor occurs in muscles or cartilage around the bones. It can be found in the soft tissues of arms, legs, neck, head, chest, and abdomen.

PNET is the tumor found in the nerves.

Under the microscope, the sarcoma is characterized by small, round, blue cells.

According to Ayurveda, cancer is of two types or stages:

  1. Granthi means benign or minor neoplasm
  2. Arbuda means malignant or major neoplasm.

Both can be inflammatory or non-inflammatory based on the doshas involved.
