It may occur retroperitoneally (the most common retroperitoneal malignancy), in the peripheral soft tissues (most commonly in the lower extremities, especially the greater legs), or in the walls of large blood vessels (mainly medium or large veins). The most common site of disease is the retroperitoneal area, the tumor is larger, more common in women. In males, it occurs mostly in the surrounding soft tissues and large blood vessels. Soft tissue leiomyosarcoma often presents as a mass, which may be painful in the peritoneum. The symptoms of leiomyosarcoma of inferior vena cava are related to the location of the tumor.
