Types of Cancer: Sarcoma
Soft tissue sarcomas (STS) are a group of cancers that develop in the tissues that support and connect the body. STS can occur almost anywhere in the body, and the sarcoma cells resemble the cells that hold the body together, including fat cells, muscle, nerves, tendons, joints, blood vessels, or lymph vessels. When an STS is small, it can go unnoticed or is ignored, since it does not usually cause problems at this stage. As an STS grows, it can interfere with the body's normal activities.
