Introduction

Sarcomas account for 1% of all cancer cases

At iTAcC we consider the diagnosis and sub-classification of sarcomas requires a multidisciplinary medical team

We recommend the characterization of these tumors by employing complex molecular determinations with the highest demands for their interpretation

Sarcomas are tumors that originate from the tissues that support the weight of the internal organs of our body. Since these tissues are varied, the classification of different types of sarcomas is broad and with very diverse clinical evolutions that also help us to classify them. This disease can roughly be divided into two groups: soft tissue sarcomas and bone sarcomas.

Sarcomas account for 1% of all cancer cases.  Cases are diagnosed primarily between the ages of 10 and 60 and depending on their type. Bone sarcomas occurring in children are known as osteosarcomas and chondrosarcomas in adults. Soft tissue sarcomas occur most frequently in the neck area during childhood and in the extremities during adulthood.
