Abstract

Malignancy of soft tissue, referred to as sarcomas, are some of the rarest tumors in medicine. These tumors account for approximately 1% of all diagnosed malignancies. Diagnosis of soft tissue sarcoma (STS) is a complex process that includes history and physical examination of patient, diagnostic imaging studies, and biopsy when indicated. All clinicians should be able to identify the unique characteristics of malignant soft tissue tumors and assist patients with obtaining care from a specialist in the treatment of STS. Evidence-based medicine has shown that the critical difference in treating STSs is a multidisciplinary approach.
