About Sarcoma Awareness Month

Sarcomas are rare cancers of the bones and soft tissues. There are more than 50 different types of sarcomas.

According to the American Cancer Society about 13,190 new soft tissue sarcomas and 3,910 new cases of primary bone cancer will be diagnosed this year. Due to the rarity of these sarcomas, most physicians are unfamiliar with this entity and therefore, evaluation by a specialist with training and expertise is paramount.
