Kind of cancer: By definition, it is malignant (i.e., being locally invasive and at least theoreticlally capable of metastasizing), and arises from / mimics muscle or connective tissue elements that are not marrow or immune / white cells. The sarcomas are a tremendously varied and troublesome family of tumors, though thankfully less common than carcinomas and the leukemia / lymphoma / myeloma family.
