Soft tissue sarcoma

This page gives you information about soft tissue sarcomas and their treatment.


What are soft tissue sarcomas?

Soft tissue sarcomas are rare malignant tumours that arise anywhere in the body from soft tissue such as muscles or fat. 

Treatment usually involves surgical removal of the tumour, which is very often followed by radiotherapy. 

Some patients also benefit from chemotherapy.
