Soft tissue sarcoma

Common Name(s)

Soft tissue sarcoma

Soft-tissue sarcomas are cancerous tumors that begin in the soft tissues of the body. This stype of sarcoma is rare in adults and not very common in children. Symptoms of soft-tissue sarcomas are not noticeable initially, but as the tumor grows, several of the following may develop: a lump or swelling, a blockage in the stomach or intestines if the tumor is located in the abdomen or digestive tract, and pain, particularly if the tumor sits on or near a bundle of nerves. Soft-tissue sarcomas can go by a variety of names, depending on the location of origination, and include disorders such as Kaposi’s sasrcoma, synovial sarcoma, liposarcoma, fibrosaroma, and neurofibrosarcoma.
