Epithelioid sarcoma (ES) is a rarely occurring malignant soft tissue tumor of uncertain histogenesis. It is most common among young males and commonly seen on the forearm, hand, and fingers. ES begins as a small lump or ulcer, and most were painless. ES has a high rate of recurrence and can spread to other parts of the body easily. Hence, physicians should take the necessary steps to ensure proper diagnosis and treatment. We present an interesting case of a 26-year-old male diagnosed with a proximal variant of ES of the shoulder.
