Sarcoma is a rare type of cancer that arises in the bone and soft tissue, which includes fat, muscles, blood vessels, nerves and fibrous tissue. Sarcoma can develop in any part of the body, though they are most commonly seen in the arms and legs.
Soft bone Sarcoma
Given the limited risk factors, it is difficult to prevent Sarcoma. There are no screening tests, and the best approach is for patients with new lumps, or lumps that are increasing in size, to seek medical attention early. This is especially so for patients who have a strong family history of cancer, or patients with previous radiation therapy treatment.
If you think you may be at risk, please consult a doctor.
