At Mayo Clinic, soft tissue sarcoma treatment focuses on curing the cancer whenever possible and saving function of the affected area. For some people, surgery may be the only treatment needed. Others may receive surgery in combination with chemotherapy or radiation therapy. Targeted therapy, which uses drugs to attack only the cancer cells, is used to treat sarcomas. Some people with soft tissue sarcoma may be able to participate in clinical trials that use targeted therapies.
