SARCOMA

Sarcomas are a varied group of cancers arising from fibrous tissue, adipose tissue (fat cells), skeletal muscle, smooth muscle, blood vessels, lymph vessels, nervous tissue, mesenchymal cells, bone, and cartilage. These cancers vary widely from benign tumors that can be cured by surgery to highly malignant wide spread cancers that need to be treated with multi-modality therapy (surgery, radiation therapy, and chemotherapy). Sarcomas comprise 3% of all cancers in adults and 7% of cancers in children. Because of the rarity of each type of sarcoma, it may be important for patients to be treated in specialty centers with access to clinical research studies.
