What is Sarcoma? Sarcoma is a cancer of the bone or connective tissue, such as nerves, muscles, cartilage, tendons, fat, and blood vessels that can occur in the arms, legs, chest, abdomen, head or neck. There are over 150 subtypes of sarcomas. Sarcomas comprise less than 1% of adult cancers and approximately 15% of pediatric cancers. Around 16,000 individuals are diagnosed with bone or soft-tissue sarcoma in the U.S. each year.
