Soft Tissue Cancer
"The Importance of Multi-Disciplinary Approach in Soft Tissue Cancer Treatment"
I have a lot of expertise diagnosing and treating soft tissue malignancies, which can appear in muscles, tendons, and fascia and can be treated by an orthopedic specialist. Patients with soft tissue tumors, especially those that damage the bones and joints, receive the best care possible at our institutions.
Soft tissue malignancies are not frequent, but when they do arise, they need to be treated very away in order to have the best chance of recovery. Our multidisciplinary team of specialists considers the patient's medical history, the type and stage of the disease, as well as their general condition while diagnosing and treating malignant malignancies.
The First Step in Soft Tissue Cancer Treatment: Determining the Type and Stage
Finding out the type and stage of the tumor is the first step in treating soft tissue cancer. This is often accomplished through a biopsy, which entails the removal of a small piece of tissue for microscopic inspection. We may advise either surgery, radiation therapy, or a combination of these therapies, depending on the kind and stage of the cancer.
Since surgery can be extremely effective in completely eliminating the malignant growth, it is frequently the therapy of choice for soft tissue tumors. These treatments, which can be carried out either by open incisions or minimally invasive methods, can be carried out by our team of orthopedic specialists with a high level of proficiency. We employ the most recent surgical methods and equipment to give patients the best results possible, including a quicker recovery, less discomfort, and little scarring.
Surgery: A Common Treatment for Soft Tissue Cancer
I can tell you from experience as an orthopedic surgeon who works in our hospitals that surgery is frequently used to treat soft tissue cancer. It may be the first line of treatment or used in conjunction with other medicines, depending on the type and stage of the cancer.
In order to ensure that all cancer cells are eliminated during surgery for soft tissue cancer, the aim is to remove the entire malignant tissue as well as some nearby healthy tissue. Wide local excision is the name given to this procedure.
A lymph node biopsy or dissection may also be carried out in some instances if the cancer has spread to neighboring lymph nodes in order to remove any malignant lymph nodes.
A limb-sparing technique is another kind of surgery for soft tissue cancer that is performed to remove the tumour while leaving the limb intact. As an alternative to amputation, this kind of surgery may be utilized when the cancer is in an arm or leg.
It's crucial to remember that the kind of surgery needed will depend on the cancer's type and stage as well as the patient's general condition. The ideal course of action for your unique situation will be decided in collaboration with you and your doctor.
In some circumstances, radiation therapy may also be suggested as an alternative to surgery. This can be used to eliminate any cancer cells that may still be present and lower the likelihood of the disease returning.
