Symptoms of soft tissue sarcomas may include a painless lump under the skin. If the tumour grows and presses on nearby organs, tissue, nerves or blood vessels, other symptoms can appear, such as pain or weakness. These symptoms vary, depending on where in the body the tumour has formed.
Note about symptoms
Many conditions – including common childhood infections – can cause these symptoms, not just soft tissue sarcomas. If your child has any of these symptoms and you are concerned, talk to your child’s doctor.
