About Sarcoma Cancer:

Soft tissue sarcomas are a group of cancerous tumors that are developed by abnormalities in muscles, joints, tendons, fat, blood vessels, nerves, and tissues that surround, connect or support various structures and organs of the body. Some soft-tissue tumors are benign and do no cause cancer such as lipomas and hemangiomas, whereas others are malignant or cancerous and are called soft tissue sarcomas.

Unlike many cancers, soft tissue sarcoma symptoms are often not felt at an initial stage, for it develops in soft parts of the body that are easily pushed away by a growing tumor. In some cases, people may notice a lump which doesn’t usually cause pain, but if it is pressed against nerves, muscles, or blood vessels, they may experience pain, soreness, or difficulty breathing.

Types of Sarcoma Cancer:

While sarcomas have various types, each type is rare. Some common types of sarcoma cancer are:

  • Angiosarcoma, caused by abnormal growth of cells in the blood or lymphatic vessels
  • Chondrosarcoma occurs in the cartilage
  • The gastrointestinal stromal tumor develops in the digestive tract
  • Kaposi’s sarcoma affects HIV+ patients and forms tumors in blood vessels
  • Liposarcoma occurs in fat cells
  • Osteosarcoma appears in bone
  • Rhabdomyosarcoma affects skeletal muscles

Sarcoma Cancer Treatment

Since each type of sarcoma cancer is treated differently, it often becomes quite challenging for the care providers to treat the disease successfully and give an accurate prognosis to the patient. Soft tissue sarcoma treatment depends on the diagnosis, location, and extent of tumors, along with the patient’s personal preferences. It usually involves surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, or a combination of these therapies to either remove tumors from the body or prevent cancer from spreading to other organs.
