    About Sarcoma Cancers

    Sarcomas are tumors that occur in the soft tissue that supports or connects structures and organs inside your body.

    Soft tissue sarcomas include cancers of the muscles, tendons, fat, cartilage, blood vessels, nerves and synovial (surrounding joints and tendons) tissue. Most sarcomas are located in the feet, legs and arms, although they can occur anywhere in the body.

    Sarcomas may be benign or malignant (cancerous).
