What Is Soft Tissue Sarcoma?
Soft tissue sarcoma refers to cancer that begins in the muscle, fat, fibrous tissue, blood vessels, or other supporting tissue of the body. The tumors can be found anywhere in the body but often form in the arms, legs, chest, or abdomen.
Signs of soft tissue sarcoma include a lump or swelling in soft tissue. Sometimes there are no signs or symptoms until the tumor is big and presses on nearby nerves or other parts of the body.
