Soft tissue sarcoma stages

Making an educated treatment decision begins with the stage, or progression, of the disease. The stage of soft tissue sarcoma is one of the most important factors in evaluating treatment options.

Our cancer doctors use a variety of diagnostic tests to evaluate soft tissue sarcoma and develop an individualized treatment plan. If you have been recently diagnosed, we will review your pathology to confirm you have received the correct diagnosis and staging information, and develop a personalized treatment plan. If you have a recurrence, we will perform comprehensive testing and identify a treatment approach that is suited to your needs.

Stage III soft tissue sarcoma

Stage III can be defined in two ways:

T2, N0, M0, G3: The tumor is larger than 5 cm across (T2), and has not spread to the lymph nodes (N0) or distant sites (M0). The cancer is grade 3.


Any T, N1, M0, any G: The tumor can be any size (T1 or T2), and it has spread to nearby lymph nodes (N1) but not distant sites (M0). The cancer can be any grade (GX, G1, G2 or G3).
