Sarcomas are growths which come from primitive cells seen in the human embryo. These cells have the ability to turn into the so-called connective tissues of the body; the tumors are named for the tissue type that they most resemble. Sarcomas can occur in any part of the body. This issue will split between general considerations of sarcomas and specific clinical management issues.
