Pediatric Soft Tissue Sarcoma

What is soft tissue sarcoma?

Soft tissue sarcoma is a type of cancer that grows in soft tissues that support and connect parts of the body, including:

  • Muscles
  • Nerves
  • Fat
  • Tendons
  • Blood vessels

In children, soft tissue tumors most often develop in the arms, legs, chest and abdomen. If left untreated, soft tissue cancer can spread (metastasize) to other parts of the body.
