Soft tissue sarcomas

6% of childhood cancers - an average of 14 children diagnosed each year.

Sarcomas develop in the supporting tissues of the body such as muscle or cartilage.  Almost 50% of soft tissue sarcomas are Rhabdomyosarcoma, which arises in the muscle cells.  The other soft tissue tumours include Fibrosarcomas which occur in fibrous tissues and Synovial Sarcomas which start near joints.
