In brief: Don't usually bruise

Sarcomas of the foot uncommon.
The most frequent sarcoma is liposarcoma that would be extremely rare followed by fibrosarcomas usually beginning with plantar fibromatosis and extending to the fibrosarcoma which rarely is vascular and doesn't bleed. The most aggressive tumor of the foot is the synovioma and epitheliod sarcoma which can bleed and tends to rapidly spread.
