Your Oncologist can: In case you have not already seen an oncologist, he/she is the best person to guide you through this journey. You should also consider seeking a sarcoma specialist, if you can travel to a major Cancer center in your city or state. The survival figures you have been given are a best guess and are not of much help to be able to do all that can be and should be done to control your cancer. Good luck
