Epithelioid sarcoma (ES) is a rare cancerous tumor that most often occurs in the soft tissue of the fingers, hands and forearms of young adults. It can also occur elsewhere in the body. ES usually begins as a painless, firm growth or bump that may be accompanied by an open wound (ulceration) in the skin covering the growth. The cause of Epithelioid sarcoma is unknown. It is diagnosed by a clinical examination and by testing a small sample of the tumor (biopsy) in a laboratory.
