Synopsis:
Sarcomas, cancerous tumors of soft tissue (muscles, tendons, fat and blood vessels) are relatively rare in the United States, with about 5,500 new cases diagnosed every year. Sarcomas represent only one percent of all cancer cases. Despite the low prevalence (or because of it), however, patients with the disease are extremely motivated to learn everything they can about their cancer and its treatment. Sarcomas comprise up to 6.5 percent of all cancers in children 15 years of age and younger, ranking fifth in cancer cases in children of that age group. 100 Questions & Answers About Sarcomas (Soft-Tissue Cancer) is designed for patients, and patients' families. This title provides answers to most common questions asked by patients and their caregivers/family members about sarcomas.
