Sarcoma

Sarcomas are cancers found in bones, blood vessels, cartilage, fat and muscle. They are broken down into two groups: bone tumors and soft tissue sarcomas.

If the sarcoma has not spread to other areas in the body, the treatment plan may involve surgery, radiation and chemotherapy. If the sarcoma is advanced, the primary goal of the treatment plan is to offer the patient the best possible quality of life. This may require the use of individual or combined treatment methods.

Physicians in the surgical oncology division help diagnose, treat and manage various sarcomas of the soft tissue and bones as part of the multidisciplinary team of radiologists, pathologists, orthopaedic surgeons, radiation oncologists and medical oncologists in the UF Health Jacksonville Cancer Center.
