Soft Tissue Sarcoma

Diagnosis

  • Physical exam
  • CT scam
  • MRI
  • PET scan
  • Biopsy

Treatment

Most people diagnosed with soft tissue sarcomas can be treated by surgery alone. The surgery involves removing all of the cancer so that the margins, which are the edges of what has been removed, contain no cancer cells. Radiation therapy is sometimes used to shrink the cancer before surgery or to treat the residual cancer if any is left behind after surgery. Chemotherapy is generally used only when the cancer has already spread to other sites.

Bone Sarcoma

Treatment

The most common treatment for bone sarcomas is surgery. Radiation therapy may be used to shrink the cancer before surgery or to treat the residual cancer if any is left behind after surgery. Chemotherapy is used when the cancer has already spread to other sites. Targeted therapy is also used at times to prompt the patient's own immune system to fight the cancer.
