More treatment information for soft tissue sarcomas

For more details on treatment options— including some that may not be addressed in this document— the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) and the National Cancer Institute (NCI) are good sources of information.

The NCCN, made up of experts from many of the nation's leading cancer centers, develops cancer treatment guidelines for doctors to use when treating patients. Those are available on the NCCN Web site (www.nccn.org).

The NCI provides treatment information via telephone (1-800-4-CANCER) and its website (www.cancer.gov). Information for patients as well as more detailed information for cancer care professionals is also available on www.cancer.gov.

No cancer treatment can be done without consent. People who are capable of making their own decisions can decide whether they are willing to take any medical treatment, including any recommended cancer treatments. Your doctor should discuss treatment options with you, and explain what is likely to happen if you accept or refuse these treatments. For more, you can read our document Informed Consent.
