 +A [[malignant]] [[tumor]] that begins in fibrous [[connective tissue]] at the ends of the arm or leg bones and may spread to surrounding soft [[tissue]]. Fibrosarcoma is the most common soft tissue sarcoma found in children under one year of age. It presents as a rapidly growing mass at birth or early infancy. Fibrosarcoma can also occur in older children and adults. The symptoms may include a lump, soreness, [[pain]], or a limp (if the [[tumor]] is in the leg).
