Sarcoma

Sarcoma

Sarcoma is a general term coined for all types of connective tissue tumours in the human body. Sarcomas are cancers that develop from the cells that make up soft tissue. Soft, connective tissue is present throughout the body. Sarcomas can grow almost anywhere. These growths show as lumps in the soft tissues. This can cause pressure on body tissues or organs nearby. Eventually, cancer cells from the original site may break away and spread to other parts of the body. Sarcomas can spread to almost any organ in the body, including the lungs or bones. The new cancers are known as secondary cancers or metastases.
