Information regarding the delay in diagnosis as well as the causes of the delay are lacking in the U.S. Specifically, we aim to identify patient factors and provider factors that contribute to delayed diagnosis of sarcoma.
The goal of this study is to create a comprehensive system of tissue banking of samples from Mayo Clinic Arizona patients with a clinical diagnosis of sarcoma who will or have undergone a surgical procedure to remove the sarcoma. The tissue samples will be used for future research of sarcoma at Mayo Clinic and future research at Mayo Clinic to learn about, prevent, or treat other health problems.
