Liposarcoma is a soft tissue cancer that develops in fat cells. The mass can grow anywhere, most often on the abdomen or limbs. The disease is mainly observed in adults but can rarely occur in children. The primary treatment method is surgery. In addition, doctors usually recommend chemotherapy or radiation therapy.

Liposarcoma sarcoma is not a common disease. It accounts for less than 1% of all cancers worldwide. However, a mass is more common in men than in women. This is because genetic mutations in fat cells lead to uncontrolled growth and tumor formation.

Patients with liposarcoma have no symptoms other than the feeling of a painless lump. It can appear anywhere in the body but usually forms in the abdomen, legs, or arms. The mass can sometimes multiply quickly and pressure nearby tissues or organs. To ensure a patient has liposarcoma, the doctor may use imaging tests such as x-rays, CT scans, or MRIs to determine the tumor size and whether it has spread. Next, oncologists perform a biopsy to examine the tissue sample under a microscope.

The treatment plan for liposarcoma varies depending on the stage and location of the sarcoma. Often the first step is the surgical removal of the tumor. After that, an operation followed by radiation is the most common treatment regimen.

A doctor may recommend radiation therapy before surgery to reduce the growth and also after the operation to kill any remaining cancer cells. In addition, the oncologist may prescribe chemotherapy to kill tumor cells.
