Primary tumours of bone are a rare group of tumours which, even when considered as a single group, account for only 0.2% of all cancer diagnoses in the UK, an incidence of only 8.2 cases per million of the population. Of the three most recognisable primary bone tumours, Ewings sarcoma is the least frequent with only 2 new cases per million of the population. Ewings sarcoma tends to occur in children and has a particular preponderance for the pelvis.
