There are at least 50 histologic sub-types of soft tissue sarcoma. Because of the rarity and heterogeneity of these diseases, the majority of oncologists see very few patients with sarcoma in their practices. Yet, many patients with sarcoma are young and potentially curable with minimal functional morbidity. It is thus important for oncologists to have a good working knowledge of not only the appropriate management of soft tissue sarcoma, but also the appropriate radiotherapy techniques so that opportunities for cure with excellent functional outcome are not missed.
