What is Metastatic Sarcoma?

Metastatic sarcoma is a rare type of cancer that starts in the bone marrow and spreads to connective tissues such as fat and muscle throughout the body. If the cancer is caught early and limited to the bone marrow and muscle, surgery is usually successful, and many people are cured. But if the cancer has spread to other parts of your body, treatment usually focuses on managing the cancer rather than getting cured.

Speaking to People back in April, Kimberely said, “Symptoms of sarcoma are so important because there is no screening test. My symptom was the most common symptom in soft tissue sarcoma. [Everything was] completely normal — including all my lab values — except for a small, but rapidly growing lump in my left leg.”

“Mine changed rapidly, which led me to see my doctor right away. It went from the size of a pea to the size of a golf ball in just over a week,” she continued explaining her condition.
