According to Texas Oncology, “Ewing’s sarcoma that has spread from the initially affected bone to one or more sites in the body, distant from the site of origin, is called metastatic. The most common site to which Ewing’s sarcoma spreads, or metastasizes, is the lungs. Metastatic Ewing’s is typically difficult to control, though patients with lung metastases have a better prognosis than patients with other distant metastases.”
