In brief: Abdomen

A retro peritoneal sarcoma is a cancer of the smooth muscle arising in an organ in the abdomen.
It typically arises from the lining of the bowel. Hope this helps.

Retroperitoneal sarcomas arise from numerous types of tissue. The most common occurring in the retroperitoneum being a liposarcoma which arises from fat. I would make sure you speak with an oncologist at a specialty cancer center to discuss therapy. Please make sure that you have your sarcoma pathology checked by an expert [email protected]

In brief: Fairly common

This is a cancer arising from connective tissue, blood vessels, or fat, in the area of your back behind the sheath that covers your intestine.
Many of these are very slow-growing liposarcomas that can get quite big. Some can be cured surgically and many of the rest are still compatible with a long and good life.
