Sarcoma

Your soft tissues connect, support, or surround other tissues. Examples include your muscles, tendons, fat, and blood vessels. Soft tissue sarcoma is a cancer of these soft tissues. There are many kinds, based on the type of tissue they started in. They may cause a lump or swelling in the soft tissue. Sometimes they spread and can press on nerves and organs, causing problems such as pain or trouble breathing. No one knows exactly what causes these cancers. They are not common, but you have a higher risk if you have been exposed to certain chemicals, have had radiation therapy, or have certain genetic diseases. Doctors diagnose soft tissue sarcomas with a biopsy. Treatments include surgery to remove the tumor, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, or a combination.

Synovial sarcoma

Synovial sarcomas, which represent approximately 10% of all soft tissue sarcomas, are aggressive spindle cell sarcomas containing in some cases areas of epithelial differentiation. They consistently show a specific t(X;18)(p11.2;q11.2), which usually represents either of 2 gene fusions, SYT (600192)-SSX1 (312820) or SYT-SSX2 (300192), encoding putative transcriptional proteins differing at 13 amino acid positions (summary by Ladanyi et al., 2002). Synovial sarcoma, according to the experience of Enzinger and Weiss (1983), is the fourth most common type of soft tissue sarcoma. It usually develops in adolescents and young adults, is more common in males than in females, and has no racial predilection. [from OMIM]
