Sarcoma: Lesions that arise from structures of soft tissue or bone are of mesenchymal origin. This stands in contrast to those tumors arising at glandular sites such as breast , ovary, prostate, colon, lung. The tumors of bone and soft tissue are termed sarcomas. In bone it is the osteo and chondro sarcoma. In soft tissue we find the liposarcoma (fat), fibrosarcoma (fibrous tissue origin),.
