What Is Soft Tissue Sarcoma?
A sarcoma is a type of cancer that develops from specific tissues in the body. There are two main types of sarcomas: soft tissue sarcomas and bone sarcomas (bone cancer).
Soft tissue sarcomas may develop in any tissue that connects, supports or surrounds other structures and organs in the body. Some examples of where soft tissues sarcomas can develop are muscles, fascia (the tough membrane that surrounds muscles), tendons, fat, blood vessels, nerves and synovial tissues (connective tissue that makes up the membranes surrounding joints).

"From the get-go, I was impressed with the fact that CTCA had all of the types of healthcare providers I was looking for right there. In addition to oncologists, they had psychologists, naturopaths and other providers. I was thinking, ‘Whoa, these people are on the same page as I’m on.’"
