Sarcoma can be a scary diagnosis because the term is so broad; sarcoma refers to cancers that develop in the bones or soft tissues, including muscles, blood vessels, and nerves.

Bone sarcomas are more common in children and typically occur in the thigh, upper arm, or shin. Certain types of soft tissue sarcoma, such as rhabdomyosarcoma, are also more common in children.

No matter the type of sarcoma, the experts in the GW Cancer Center’s Sarcoma and Bone Cancer Program are well-equipped to diagnose and treat each case using the best and newest medical technology available.
