About sarcoma

Sarcoma can affect any part of the body. It most commonly affects the arms, legs and torso. It can also occur in the stomach, intestines and female reproductive system (known as gynaecological sarcoma). At HCA Healthcare UK we provide expert care for these rare cancers and are partnered with two of the UKs recognised specialist sarcoma centres at University College London Hospitals and The Christie in Manchester.

Types of sarcoma

Soft tissue sarcoma

Soft tissue sarcomas can originate in any part of the body. They develop in the connective or supporting tissue including fatty tissue, muscles, nerves, blood vessels and in any soft tissue which surrounds organs within the body.

Bone sarcoma

Bone sarcoma is a very rare type of cancer that starts in the bone. It can affect any part of the body but most commonly affects the legs. Not all bone cancers are sarcomas. Specialist tests will provide an accurate diagnosis.
