Radiation therapy for soft tissue sarcoma
Depending on the type of soft tissue sarcoma you have and the extent of the disease, your soft tissue sarcoma treatment plan at Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA) may include radiation therapy.
Though surgery is usually the main treatment approach for soft tissue sarcoma, radiation treatments may also be used before (neoadjuvant therapy) or following surgery (adjuvant therapy).
Advanced radiation treatment for soft tissue sarcoma
Soft tissue sarcomas are very rare, and there are more than 50 different types that can be diagnosed. They may also be surrounded by sensitive tissues like nerves and blood vessels, or be located near vital organs such as the lungs or heart.
At CTCA®, we have radiation oncologists and other experts who have experience in dealing with advanced and complex cases of soft tissue sarcoma. These radiation oncologists work side by side with our surgical oncologists, medical oncologists and other clinicians and specialists to help plan, coordinate and deliver radiation therapy.
We also use advanced treatments and high-tech radiation delivery methods to enhance the effect of soft tissue sarcoma radiation therapy, while reducing side effects caused by damage to surrounding healthy tissues.
