What is Sarcoma?

Soft tissue sarcomas or Sarcoma are a diverse group of malignant tumours that originate when abnormal cells grow out of control in “soft tissues” and “connective tissues”. Soft tissues can be found in any part of the body and include muscles, tendons, fat, blood and lymph vessels, nerves and joint linings (synovial tissue). The type of sarcoma depends on the kind of cells it arises from. Connective tissues include all tissues that support, connect or separate different tissues in the body. Therefore it can be found in the structure of organs in the body (e.g., the uterus). Soft tissue sarcomas, therefore, can grow almost anywhere, but are most common in arms and legs (50%), followed by trunk and abdomen (40%), and head and neck (10%)
