Hi,
I have a Ewing's sacoma in my right heel bone. Went in for a sore ankle and they found the tumor using CT scan, xrays, and biospy. I was on crutches for a week before biospy and am still on crutches. I have been told I will be on them for at least 6 months. I can't drive so that has really been hard since I am very active. They are afraid my heel bone will collaspe. I see the oncologist of Thursday. I have always been in great health, no surgeries or illness and never expected this. ( I guess no one does) Had a CT scan done on my lungs today to see if the cancer has spread, will know on Thursday. I will also be told what the treatment will be. I have been told that a heel tumor is rare and Ewing's is usually found in children and young adults, I am 55. Hope that this helps.

I don't know if you have had anymore tests on the lump, but you really should press the issue with your doctor or see another one. I had a lump on the bottom of my foot at the base of the big toe. 2 podatrists said it was just a cyst. I had surgery on the same foot for a bunion & they also removed the "cyst". She sent it for tests even though she said it looked fine & was not cancer. 15 days later the results were clear cell sarcoma & I have an appointment with a sarcoma specialist in Pittsburgh, Pa. I also had numerous x-rays before the surgery & they did not show the cancer. Unfortunatly, I had to have 1/2 of my foot amputated, but it had not spread anywhere else. 5 months after the 2nd surgery, I was back to work. It could have been much worse, if I hadn't found out when I did! Scans need to be done, not x-rays. Hope this helps.
