Sarcomas are cancers that arise in the connective tissues, which are cells that hold the body together. Connective tissues include: cartilage, tendons, fat, muscles, and the bones in the body. There are many different sub-types of sarcomas, because they can arise in different connective tissues. Although a lot of the lumps and bumps we get are benign, people should have them looked at by a doctor at an early stage in case it is sarcoma.
