What treatments are most successful for sarcoma?
My husband has sarcoma (a rare cancer,only 3,800 reported cased world-wide). It has come back for the third time. The first time he did radiation. The second time he did chemo for 4 months and it had absolutely no effect. We have talked to several doctors and most are not familiar with this type of cancer. We are in discussions about the best form of treatment that will work. Are there any treatment that has been known to work with this type of cancer? Thank you for your advice
Of course you will want the medical oncologist's opinion on this, but have you considered clinical trials? ClinicalTrials.gov may have some opportunities to participate in new sarcoma treatments.
Thank you for giving me such a helpful website. It is truly the best piece of information that I have received in reference to Sarcoma. We only had 3 choices for treatment when the sarcoma returned . With 2 of the 3 already being done we were left with the final treatment choice. I will keep you posted and share our finding with this website. Thank you, caring .com for being on the internet.
