In brief: Very hard question
Although sarcoma are not painful to start with but they become painful later on.
The patient start o have some dull aching pain at the site of the tumor.

In brief: Lump, possibly pain
Sarcomas can arise in the soft tissues or bone.
They usually present as a lump. If it is in the bone, they tend to hurt. If in the soft tissues, they tend to be painless. Pain is often worse at night. Sarcomas are very rare while regular aches and pains are quite common. If you are concerned about a sarcoma, see you doctor to be examined and to get an x-ray, possibly an mri.
