Sarcoma refers to cancer that occurs in tissues of the body such as bone, fat, or muscles. Uterine sarcoma is a rare cancer that develops in the tissues of the uterus. Cancer that forms in the inner lining of the uterus is called endometrial cancer, a different and more common disease, which is discussed here.
The American Cancer Society estimates that in 2012, 1,390 women will be diagnosed with uterine sarcomas.
