Sarcoma Travel Insurance
Sarcomas are the malignant and bad Cancers of connective tissue. The name literally meaning flesh in Greek, Sarcomas arise in bodily tissues such as muscles, bones, skin, blood vessels and fat, and are divided into two groups; soft tissue Sarcomas and bone Sarcomas. As opposed to the more common carcinomas (lung, breast and colon Cancer, for example), Sarcomas are a very rare type of Cancer. It makes up about 1% of all cancers diagnosed worldwide. The most effective treatment is surgery, the removal of the affected area in other words. Additionally, chemotherapy and radiation therapy may be considered as well.
