Sarcoma - How to prevent?

Sarcoma - Diagnosis

Most sarcomas are diagnosed when biopsy (removal of piece of tissue) of a lump on the arm, leg or trunk is examined under a microscope by the pathologist (doctor who specialises in examining issue under a microscope).
Once a sarcoma is diagnosed, other tests such as magnetic resonance scanning (MRI) of the site of cancer to delineate extent of the cancer and if it is operable, computerised scans (CT) of the lungs and liver to determine if the cancer has spread, are usually arranged.
