Tissues that can be affected by soft tissue sarcomas include fat, muscular tissue, capillary, deep skin tendons, tissues and ligaments. Soft tissue sarcomas can develop in virtually any part of the body, consisting of the legs, arms and belly. Soft tissue sarcomas commonly have no apparent symptoms in the early phases. There are several types of soft tissue sarcoma, depending on where in the body it develops. When present, symptoms depend on the location and size of the tumor however may consist of an apparent swelling under the problem, skin, or pain breathing.
