Sarcoma Awareness Month (1st-31st July)

Sarcoma prognosis has not changed much over the last 40 years. Sarcoma UK are working to address that with a range of informative and interesting events throughout July.

Sarcomas are uncommon types of cancer that affect any part of the body. There are two types of sarcoma – bone sarcoma and soft tissue sarcoma. Typically identified by large fast-growing lumps on the body, the average tumour is the size of a large tin of baked beans at the point of diagnosis.
