Sarcomas can originate from nearly any location of the body as humans have connective tissue distributed throughout their bodies. As such, sarcomas have been documented to start from nearly any part of the body. The most common presentation of a sarcoma is notation of a lump or bump in the extremities or abdomen that does not go away over a period of weeks to months. Other common symptoms that you should seek medical attention for include:
- Stomach pain and vomiting
- A full feeling after not eating very much
- Blood in the stool (a red or tar-like black stool)
- Lack of appetite or weight loss
These symptoms may be the result of soft tissue sarcoma. They may also be symptoms of less serious illnesses. If you have any of these symptoms, see a health care provider right away.
