Childhood Soft Tissue Sarcoma - Recurrent Childhood Soft Tissue Sarcoma

Treatment for recurrent childhood soft tissue sarcoma depends on the treatment your child received before, the part of the body where the cancer has come back, and your child’s general condition. You may wish to have your child take part in a clinical trial. Treatment may be one of the following:

  1. Surgery to remove the cancer.
  2. Surgery followed by radiation therapy (if the patient has not yet received radiation therapy).
  3. Amputation of sarcomas of the arm or leg in patients who have previously received radiation therapy.

Clinical trials are evaluating chemotherapy and biologic therapy in recurrent soft tissue sarcoma.
