Sarcoma - How to prevent?

Sarcoma - Causes and Risk Factors

For most patients, no risk factors have been identified.
Patients with familial diseases such as neurofibromatosis who have multiple benign enlargements of nerve sheaths have a higher risk of one of these enlarged nerve sheaths turning cancerous.
Patients with prior radiotherapy have a slightly higher chance of developing a sarcoma within the previously radiated area. This may take up to 10 years to occur.
