Risk Factors for Ewing's Sarcoma

There is no way to know for sure if you're going to get Ewing's sarcoma. And there is no known way to prevent it.

Certain factors can make you more likely to get cancer than another person. These are called risk factors. There have not been any lifestyle (such as smoking) or inherited risk factors that have been directly linked to Ewing's sarcoma. However, there are a few general risk factors for getting Ewing's sarcoma.
