Leiomyosarcoma -cancer of supportive
tissues of the body
Soft tissue sarcomas are rare. Only about 3,300
new cases are diagnosed each year in the UK. There are several
different types of soft tissue sarcoma.
Leiomyosarcomas are one of the more common types of sarcoma to
develop in adults. They start from cells in a type of muscle tissue
called smooth muscle. Smooth muscles are involuntary muscles that we
have no control over. They are found in the walls of muscular organs
like the heart and stomach, as well as in the walls of blood vessels
throughout the body. This means that leiomyosarcomas can start
anywhere in the body. Common places are the walls of the womb
(uterus), the trunk of the body, and the arms and legs.
