There are over 30 variants of bone cancer, and over 70 variations of all sarcomas. Some varieties most commonly arise in children, adolescents and young adults and in adults over the age of 55.
The causes of sarcoma, including whether or not there are any underlying genetic links, are not yet established. This is the reason why more research into the molecular biology and etiology is so crucial.
There are approximately 1200 new cases diagnosed each year in Australia which account for approximately 1% of all adult malignancies and 15% of paediatric malignancies.
We hope you can throw your support behind this cause and 'sock it to sarcoma'.
