Bone and Soft Tissue Cancer

Apollomedics Hospital has the best Bone Cancer Treatment Doctors in Lucknow. Bone cancer is also called sarcoma of bone. Sarcomas are malignancies of connective tissue, e.g., bone, cartilage, skeletal or smooth muscle, fibroblasts, fat cells, and blood vessels. They may occur at any age. Specific sarcomas are characteristic of different age groups, and given the number of different types of tissues involved, it is not surprising that there are at least 70 different histological types of sarcoma.

Around half of sarcomas occur in the lower extremities, but any site in the body from the scalp to the toes may be affected.

  • About half of bone and soft tissue sarcomas begin in an arm or leg
  • Around 40 per cent start in the torso or belly
  • About 10 per cent start in the head or neck
