Malignant Soft Tissue Tumors

A malignant tumor can form in any tissue in the body. This includes muscles, blood vessels, nerves, tendons and fat. When these tumors are cancerous, they are called malignant soft tissue tumors. There are more than 30 different types of these tumors.

Our doctors will develop a treatment plan based on the size of the tumor you have and how fast it is growing or spreading. Your general health and where the tumor is located in your body are important factors in your treatment.  

These tumors require coordinated care from your surgeon, medical oncologist and radiation oncologist. We will work with you to find the best course of treatment.
