Sarcoma UK

Sarcoma

More research needs to be done to fully understand how these cancers develop and spread and how best to diagnose and treat them. People can survive sarcoma if their cancer is diagnosed early, when treatments can be effective and before the sarcoma has spread to other parts of the body. It is vital that patients be referred to a specialist sarcoma team as early as possible. Sarcomas are usually found by a patient when a lump appears on the leg, arm or trunk.

  • There are three main types of Sarcoma: soft tissue sarcoma, bone sarcoma and gastrointestinal stromal tumours (GIST).
  • 88% Sarcomas diagnosed in the UK are soft tissue Sarcomas.
  • The majority of people are diagnosed when their sarcoma is about the size of a large tin of baked beans (10cm).​
  • Sarcoma survival rates have been very gradually increasing over the last two decades in the UK.
  • Almost 8 in 10 people (78%) diagnosed with sarcoma in the UK will live up to a year.
  • The average percentage of people living three years after being diagnosed with sarcoma in the UK is 64.5%.
  • The five-year survival rate for sarcoma is 55%.​
  • Awareness of sarcoma is low in the UK. According to a YouGov poll conducted in April 2020, three quarters (75%) of people in the UK do not know or are not sure what Sarcoma is.
  • Even for those who have heard of Sarcoma understanding of its symptoms is poor. Nearly a third (29%) had no idea of what the symptoms of sarcoma are and less than half could identify the key symptoms of a painful lump growing in size (47%) and bone pain (46%).
