Patient story: how a lump turned out to be cancer

Carina Schneider from the Austrian Childhood Cancer Organisation explains how she was diagnosed with Ewing sarcoma at the age of 17. After spotting a lump on her right shin, a first GP misdiagnosed it. When Carina started to feel pain, 9 months later, a new GP recognized the tumor and she was diagnosed with Ewing Sarcoma. Her treatment lasted around 9 months. After receiving a chemotherapy, a radiotherapy as well as a bone surgery, she was cancer-free.
