Fibrosarcoma is cancer arising from connective tissue. The disease develops slowly but continuously. Trauma or radiation exposure can accelerate tumor growth. Doctors use surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy for treatment.

Fibrosarcoma is a mass of cancerous cells that divide uncontrollably into tendons, ligaments, and muscles. It is rare, affecting about 1 in 2 million people.

The tumor occurs at any age, most often on the limbs. Painless nodules of various sizes appear under the skin, and the skin over the formations becomes blue-red.

The exact cause of fibrosarcoma is unclear. However, doctors identify some disorders that can increase the risk of developing the disease. For example, genetics, neurofibromatosis type 1 (multiple bumps of the body and organs), retinoblastoma (malignant eye tumor), and others.

Imaging tests (CT, MRI, X-ray) provide images of the tumors, their size, and their exact location. Next, doctors perform a biopsy - removing the tumor part for examination under a microscope.

The primary treatment for fibrosarcoma is surgery to remove the tumor. If the fibrosarcoma involves bone, surgeons may replace it with a prosthesis or bone graft after removal. Radiation uses high-energy x-rays to kill cancer cells or prevent them from growing. Radiation therapy can be used before (non-adjuvant) or after the operation (adjuvant) to kill any remaining cancer cells. Chemotherapy aims to destroy tumor cells throughout the body (metastases).
