Soft tissue sarcoma

Sarcoma is a rare cancer which can develop anywhere in the body. It is more common in children and young adults.

Soft tissue sarcomas start in the soft tissues of the body, including muscle, fat, blood vessels, nerves, tendons and tissues around the joints.

The Cancer Institute NSW recommends that all people with cancer have their care overseen by a multidisciplinary team (MDT).

In addition, people with soft tissue sarcoma may need complex treatment and should be seen at a specialist centre.

Use our Canrefer website to find multidisciplinary teams and specialist centres in NSW and ACT.

Being diagnosed with cancer can be stressful and confusing. Having the right information can help you talk to your cancer care team and be more involved in your care.
