soft tissue sarcoma

Oncology A sarcoma that arises in muscle, fat, fibrous tissue, blood vessels, or other supporting tissues. See Sarcoma.
Soft tissue sarcoma staging
I A Tumor cells are morphologically similar to normal cells; tumor measures ≤ 5 cm
 B Ditto; tumor ≥ 5 cm
II A Tumor cells are mildly atypical; tumor measures ≤ 5 cm
 B Ditto; tumor ≥ 5 cm
III A Tumor cells are moderately or severely atypical/bizarre; tumor measures ≤ 5 cm
 B Ditto; tumor ≥ 5 cm
IV A Any cellular atypia; any sized tumor with lymph node involvement
 B Any cellular atypia; any sized tumor with metastasis

K: Lymph Nodes.--With the exception of epithelioid sarcoma and clear cell sarcoma of soft parts, regional lymph node metastasis is uncommon in adult soft tissue sarcomas. Nodes are not sampled routinely, and it usually is not necessary to exhaustively search for nodes.
No clear survival benefit has been shown with the use of chemotherapy in adult soft tissue sarcomas. [22.23] However, anecdotal success has been reported; Haffner et al described the successful treatment of one case of subcutaneous leiomyosarcoma with regional chemotherapy following an incomplete surgical excision.
