Sarcoma is cancer banner

Sarcoma is cancer. 

Sarcomas are cancers that can develop anywhere in the body, including the muscle, bone, tendons, blood vessels and fatty tissues.

Every day 15 people in the UK are diagnosed with sarcoma. It's more common than we think.

Just over half of those with sarcoma will live more than five years after their diagnosis.

Sarcomas are usually found by a patient when a lump appears on the leg, arm or trunk. The majority of people are diagnosed when their sarcoma is about the size of a baked bean tin (10cm).

Half of all sarcomas  diagnosed in the UK are in people aged 55 or older.
