Soft Tissue Sarcoma in Children

About Soft Tissue Sarcoma

Soft Tissue SarcomaCancers that occur in the connective tissue of the body, such as muscle, fat, and fibrous tissue are usually considered sarcomas. The most common sarcomas in children are rhabdomyosarcoma (muscle), osteosarcoma (bone cells), and Ewing sarcoma (in or outside of bone). However, there are more than 50 other types that affect nearly 1,000 children each year. Other types of soft tissue sarcoma include:

  • Synovial sarcoma
  • Malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumor
  • Embryonal sarcoma of the liver
  • Desmoplastic round cell tumor
  • Desmoid tumors
  • Rhabdoid tumors
  • Epithelioid sarcoma
  • Chondrosarcoma
  • Alveolar soft part sarcoma
  • Liposarcoma
  • Undifferentiated Sarcoma
  • Others
