Soft Tissue Sarcoma, Version 1.2014

Desmoid tumors aren’t cancer but act

somewhat like cancer. These tumors

will grow into nearby tissue but won’t

spread to distant sites. This chapter

starts by listing what is needed for

treatment planning. Treatment options

are then presented for when surgery

can and can’t be done. What you

should do after treatment concludes

the chapter.
