High Grade Sarcoma
Depends: This will depend in the size of the tumor, was it resectable? Even if it was radiation is needed for high grade tumors. Even with the best case features these are aggressive and can recur or spread. So prognosis will depend on every factor I asked about including whether there has already been any spread of the sarcoma.See 1 more doctor answer
By definition, it is malignant (i.e., being locally invasive and at least theoreticlally capable of metastasizing), and arises from / mimics muscle or connective tissue elements that are not marrow or immune / white cells. The sarcomas are a tremendously varied and troublesome family of tumors, though thankfully less common than carcinomas and the leukemia / ...Read more
My 29 year old was daughter was diagnosis with high grade undifferentiated sarcoma primary site lung 13.9 CM mass removed in nov. What is her prognosis?
Yes it often is: Spindle cell cancers are often called sarcomas. They can arise either in the soft tissues or in the bones. Ask your doctor what is the name of your cancer? If it is a sarcoma, chemotherapy is useful in about half of the cases, often it is used in conjunction with surgery and radiotherapy.
Some help: High grade spindle cell sarcomas are aggressive and every effort to remove the primary, control the surgical site if larger than 10 cm with RT should be made. If metastatic foci are noted surgical resection can also benefit as seen with lung mets. Primary treatment with drugs like Ifosfamide and platinum may help but primary removal is most important
Cancer: Sarcomas are cancers derived from "mesenchymal" tissues, generally referred to as bone and soft tissue. These differ from carcinomas that are derived from epithelial tissue. Sarcomas are less common and tend to behave differently than carcinomas.See 6 more doctor answers
A cancer: Sarcomas are relatively uncommon tumors that arise from connective tissue. Sarcomas can arise from fat, muscle, cartilage, bone or bone marrow. They can show up just about anywhere. They tend to be slower growing tumors and often do not respond well to chemotherapy or radiation treatments. Surgery is often the first and best treatment for soft tissue sarcomas.
Adolescent bone Ca: Ewing sarcoma is a malignant bone tumor of childhood. It appears in adolescents between the ages of 10 and 20 years old. It is the second most common bone cancer after osteosarcoma originating mostly long and large bones.. Approximately 1 in 4 children will have metastatic disease at the time of diagnosis A five drug regimen of vincristine, doxorubicin, cyclophosphamide, ifosfamide, and etoposide is now most commonly used for treatment.
Immediately: Seek out a 2nd opinion. I have not heard of that diagnosis. Sometimes inexperienced pathologists may make that diagnosis. If you have been given a diagnosis of sarcoma, it is imperative that you seek out a 2nd opinion from an expert pathologist in sarcoma.

Osteosarcoma?: While "asteroid sarcoma" is not described in the medical or astronomy literature, it sounds a lot like osteosarcoma, so I presume that was the question. Osteosarcoma is a rare cancer of bones that usually occurs in teenagers. Treatment is with chemotherapy and surgery. In many cases, it can be cured, especially if it is caught before it spreads. Amputation is required only rarely.
Relatively rare: Sarcomas are a diverse and relatively rare group of malignant tumors that develop in soft tissue and bone. Soft tissue sarcomas form in fat, muscles, nerves, joints, blood vessels, and deep skin tissues. It is estimated that in 2011, approximately 10, 980 and 2, 810 americans will be diagnosed with soft tissue and bone sarcomas, respectively.See 2 more doctor answers
Rare cancer: It is a rare cancer which usually occurs in teenagers and young adults. It more commonly occurs in bones such as the thigh bone and pelvis, but can occur in other bones and soft tissues. The usual treatment is chemotherapy and surgical removal of tumor. Sometimes radiation is used in addition to or even instead of surgery if surgery would not remove entire tumor or would be to debilitating.See 2 more doctor answers

Biopsy: The biopsy establishes the diagnosis. An MRI shows the local extent of the tumor. A ct of the chest show if it spread to the lungs. A bone scan will look if tumor spread to bone. Sometimes a pet ct is done instead. A bone marrow biopsy is done to see if tumor spread to the bone marrow.See 1 more doctor answer
Supportive tissues: Sarcomas fall into a group of malignancies derived from supportive tissue. Osseous sarcomas are derived from bone. The liposarcomas, fibrosarcomas, neurosarcomas have their origin in tissue excluding glandular components as in bowel, They can arise in any part of the body from H&N to retroperitoneum extremity and supportive tissue of stomach and uterus ie leiomyosarcomaSee 1 more doctor answer
