Neurofibrosarcomas typically do not spread to other organs of the body, although they may reach the lungs.

Overview

During treatment, we may remove the cancer, a margin of surrounding skin and possibly nearby lymph nodes. If the tumor is small and hasn’t spread, surgery may be the best treatment option. We also may use radiation to destroy remaining cancer cells or tumors that lie near important nerves. If the cancer has advanced to other parts of the body, we may use chemotherapy.
