WHAT DOES SARCOMA MEAN IN ENGLISH?

sarcoma

Sarcoma

A sarcoma is a cancer that arises from transformed cells of mesenchymal origin. Thus, malignant tumors made of cancerous bone, cartilage, fat, muscle, vascular, or hematopoietic tissues are, by definition, considered sarcomas. This is in contrast to a malignant tumor originating from epithelial cells, which are termed carcinoma. Human sarcomas are quite rare. Common malignancies, such as breast, colon, and lung cancer, are almost always carcinoma.

Definition of sarcoma in the English dictionary

The definition of sarcoma in the dictionary is a usually malignant tumour arising from connective tissue.
