9/11 Soft Tissue Cancers/Sarcoma
Soft tissue cancer/sarcoma is an uncommon cancer, but one we have seen among 9/11 responders and survivors. Turley Hansen & Rosasco has represented soft tissue cancer and sarcoma clients before the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund. Our office recently won a $1.7 million award for an NYPD Captain with a malignant soft connective tissue sarcoma.
A sarcoma is a type of cancer that develops from tissues such as bone or muscle. Bone and soft tissue sarcomas are the main types of sarcoma. Soft tissue sarcomas often develop from soft tissues like fat, muscle, nerves, blood vessels, or deep skin tissues. They can be found in any part of the body. Most cancers are the type of tumors called carcinomas.
