Soft-tissue sarcomas are cancerous growths of mesenchymal tissues, most commonly arising from fat, muscles, and other connective tissues. Sarcomas are rare, representing only a small fraction of solid malignant tumors. Because of their scarcity and a relative paucity of data, the management of sarcomas can be challenging, especially for those who infrequently encounter these tumors. Herein, the authors review the current literature regarding the diagnosis, workup, and treatment of adult soft-tissue sarcomas.
