Sarcoma Subtypes

Sarcoma Subtypes

The Sarcoma Foundation of America has attempted to create location for patients, caregivers, and health care professionals to quickly learn about a particular sub-type of sarcoma.  The number of subtypes of sarcomas is often debated.  We have attempted to create a list that encompasses most of the sarcoma subtypes. 

We hope this list will be a living document, and we will make every attempt to update it as new treatments and therapies become available for each subtype.  Subtypes that cannot be accessed are currently under construction and will have extended information posted shortly.  Please check back soon!
