In partnership with Sarcoma UK

We are delighted to have partnered with Sarcoma UK, a charity that supports those affected by soft tissue and bone sarcomas. Growing our own community of members with sarcoma diagnoses will allow us to build a resource for reseachers which will make it easier for them to find participants for clinical trials and other research.

Sarcoma UK

There are over 600 live clinical trials for cancer in the UK at the moment. Let us help you find the right trial for you.

RareCan is the only organisation in the UK that specialises in finding clinical trials for patients with rare cancer.

Liposarcoma

For a much more detailed guide, please read our liposarcoma information pack

Also known as:

  • Liposarcoma
  • Lipoma sarcomatodes

What is liposarcoma?

Liposarcomas are a type of sarcoma – a cancer that forms from the soft tissues that surround and support our organs. In liposarcoma, the cancer forms from the fatty tissues that are found throughout the body.

How rare is liposarcoma?

There are around 391 cases of liposarcoma each year in the UK. 

Why is RareCan interested in liposarcoma?

RareCan is working to accelerate research into liposarcoma, and all sarcomas, by making it easier for researchers to connect with people with these rare cancers. You can help us do this by becoming a RareCan member and sharing information with us about your diagnosis. We will then get in touch with you about any research opportunities that might be suitable for you.
