Sarcomas are uncommon cancers that can affect any part of the body, on the inside or outside including the muscle, bone, tendons, blood vessels and fatty tissues.
The most common signs are bone pain, particularly occurring at night, a mass or swelling restricted movement in a joint. There are 6-700 cases in the UK each year.
You’ll usually have chemotherapy initially after a diagnosis of one of the types of sarcoma that affect the bones.
Sometimes the cancer may spread from the bone to the nerves and blood vessels around it. If this happens the only way to treat cancer may be to remove part or all of the limb.
Our specialist team are here to help. If you or your loved one have been affected by sarcoma, talk to us and we’ll help get answers.
You may be able to claim compensation if there was a failure to recognise the symptoms, perform the right tests or properly interpret the results.
