Treatment of Soft Tissue Sarcoma

Using information obtained from the diagnostic tests, your healthcare team will be able to map out a treatment plan for you. They will be taking into account the type of sarcoma you have, the stage of the cancer, your age, and your general health and fitness levels.

Cancer treatments can be divided into local and systemic treatments. Surgery and radiotherapy are local treatments, meaning they treat just one area of the body. Chemotherapy and biological therapies are systemic treatments, which are carried in the bloodstream and can reach cancer cells wherever they are in the body, not just at the original tumour site.
