Soft tissue sarcomas refer to a certain group of cancers in the body’s muscle, fat, blood or other connective tissue. This type of cancer does not attack hard tissue such as bone or cartilage.
Because the early stages of soft tissue sarcoma often do not have symptoms, affected individuals might not notice the cancer until it has reached more advanced stages. The Department of Veterans Affairs does not recognize numerous soft tissue sarcomas as being caused by Agent Orange exposure – osteosarcoma, chondrosarcoma, Kaposi’s sarcoma and mesothelioma.
