Experts recommend that patients with sarcoma consult a team of doctors, possibly including orthopedic surgeons, oncologists, thoracic surgeons, and radiation specialists. Chemotherapy is standard, though there is no standard regimen after surgical removal of the tumor.
After a sarcoma is found, a treatment plan will be determined based on the type, location, and stage of the cancer, as well as a patient’s overall physical health. Treatment for soft tissue sarcomas include:
• Targeted therapy (anti-angiogenic therapy)
All angiosarcomas tend to be aggressive, difficult to treat, and tend to recur locally, spread widely, and have a high rate of lymph node and systemic metastases. The rate of tumor-related death is high. The overall relative 5-year survival rate of people with soft tissue sarcomas is around 50 percent, according to the National Cancer Institute (NCI).
Symptoms that present will depend on where the cancer originated and if it has spread to other parts of the body. In its early stages, soft tissue sarcomas may not cause any signs and symptoms. However, as the tumor grows, it may cause noticeable lumps or swelling, and pain if the tumor presses on nerves or muscles.
The tumors may grow and spread in an irregular pattern near the surface of the skin, or as masses in soft tissue or other organs. Primary origins of Angiosarcoma commonly include the heart and breast. Approximately 50 percent of Angiosarcomas occur in the head and neck. Angiosarcomas also can originate in the liver, spleen, bone, or brain.
Workers at vinyl chloride facilities may be exposed primarily through inhalation. Outside production facilities, the highest levels of vinyl chloride are found in air around VC factories.
