Soft tissue sarcomas are cancerous tumors that begin in the tissues that connect, support, or surround other parts of your body, such as fat and blood vessels, muscles, nerves, tendons and the lining of joints.

Overview

We will base treatment primarily on your diagnosis, the stage of the cancer and its location. We may recommend removing the cancer, followed by reconstructive procedures. We also may use radiation and chemotherapy to reduce the tumor’s size and to decrease the chance of recurrence. Our goal is to eliminate or reduce the cancer and maintain your quality of life.
