Sarcoma Yellow Sunflower

Sarcoma is a rare form of cancer affecting connective tissues such as fat, muscle, blood vessels, nerve, bone, deep skin and cartilage. There is no screening for sarcoma. As sarcomas grow you may feel a lump or mass. You may have pain that may be worse at night or cause swelling.
