In brief: Surgery +/-radiation

In general sarcomas are treated with surgical removal with negative margins which means that the tumor doesn't go up to the edge of the specimen in any area.
Depending on the sarcoma type, surgical results, and sarcoma grade, radiation therapy after the surgery may be given. Chemotherapy is reserved for advanced cases.

In brief: Multiple options

For soft tissue sarcoma, the initial issue usually is whether the sarcoma can be resected entirely by an experienced surgeon.
After surgery is done, radiation and chemotherapy may be recomended in addition. In some cases, radiation and chemo are used to shrink the sarcomas and make it possible to do the surgical removal. When the sarcoma has spread to other organs chemotherapy is utilised.
