Soft Tissue Cancer

If you have soft tissue cancer in the arms, legs, head or neck, you can receive state-of-the-art treatment in a caring environment at UMass Memorial Medical Center. Compassionate, coordinated care is provided by cancer experts who work as a team.

Soft tissue cancer can develop in tissues such as:

  • Fat
  • Muscle
  • Nerves
  • Fibrous tissues
  • Blood vessels
  • Deep skin tissues

You can be comforted in knowing that new imaging systems, diagnostic tools, and the latest medical and surgical procedures are available to treat all primary and cancerous soft tissue tumors. This gives you improved treatment results.

In most cases, your tumor can be treated and removed so that the appearance and function of the affected areas are not changed. 

In addition to advanced cancer treatments, emotional support programs and physical rehabilitation are part of your care plan to aid in your complete recovery.
