What is Sarcoma?

Sarcomas are uncommon malignant tumours which occur in bone, cartilage or soft tissues (muscle, nerves and fat). Of these types, the most common is soft tissue sarcoma as four out of five sarcomas are found in these tissues. More than half (60%) of soft tissue sarcomas are found in the leg. However sarcomas can affect any part of your body.
