Caption: Muscle sarcoma. Section through human thigh muscle showing a cancerous tumour or sarcoma. This tumour has been sliced open (white oval); thigh muscle is red. The scale reference is in centimetres. Sarcoma's are cancers of the connective tissue (muscle, bone, nerves). A sarcoma affecting skeletal (voluntary) muscle, as is the muscle of the thigh, is termed a rhabdomyosarcoma. It is a rare malignant tumour. It commonly affects the large muscle of the arm or leg in patient's of old age. The tumour grows rapidly and spreads to other tissues. Rhabdomyosarcoma responds poorly to treatment by radiotherapy and anticancer drugs. Surgical removal is usually necessary.
