July is Sarcoma Awareness Month. Sarcoma is a rare cancer that often originates deep in the body and develops from connective tissues, fat and muscle.

Sarcoma expert William Tseng, MD, associate professor of clinical surgery at the Keck School of Medicine of USC, is very familiar with the large tumors that can result from the complex disease. He urges anyone with new or growing lumps to mention these to a physician and to see an experienced specialist if sarcoma has been diagnosed.

For more information or to make an appointment with a specialist, call (800) USC-CARE (800-872-2273) or visit cancer.KeckMedicine.org.
