Sarcomas are a rare cancer, with about 12,000 people diagnosed each year. These cancers start in cells that make up bone or soft tissue which can include fat, muscles, nerves, tendons, blood and lymph vessels. There are more than 50 types of soft tissue sarcoma and these can occur anywhere in the body.

The good news is that with early, accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment by a multidisciplinary team, many patients live long and productive lives.
