Treatment for solitary fibrous tumors may include:
Surgery. Surgeons work to remove the tumor and a small margin of healthy tissue that surrounds it. In most cases, surgery is the only treatment necessary.
The type of operation used to remove a solitary fibrous tumor depends on where the tumor occurs.
Radiation therapy. Radiation therapy can be used to treat a solitary fibrous tumor that can't be removed with surgery. Sometimes radiation therapy is used to shrink a tumor so that it's more likely to be removed completely during surgery.
Radiation therapy can also be used during surgery. Once a tumor is removed with surgery, intraoperative radiation therapy is directed to the area around the tumor. This may reduce the risk that the tumor will recur.
