A sarcoma is a cancer that comes from transformed cells of mesenchymal (connective tissue) origin.[1]

Connective tissue is a term that includes bone, cartilage, fat, vascular, or hematopoietic tissues, and sarcomas can arise in any of these types of tissues. As a result, there are many subtypes of sarcoma.[2] The word sarcoma is derived from the Greek σάρξ sarx meaning "flesh".[3]
