Because desmoid tumor never metastasizes, surgery alone is often the only treatment and hence surgical removal of the tumor is the primary treatment. The recurrence rate for a desmoid tumor is often as high as 50% and hence more than one surgery is commonly needed.
Desmoplastic small round cell tumor (DSRCT) is a type of cancer. It is usually found in the abdomen (belly), but it can also occur in other parts of the body. Tumors are formed by small, round cancer cells and are surrounded by scarlike tissue. The tumor has a specific genetic abnormality that helps confirm the diagnosis.

Rhabdomyosarcoma, or RMS, is an aggressive and highly malignant form of cancer that develops from skeletal muscle cells that have failed to fully differentiate. It is generally considered to be a disease of childhood, as the vast majority of cases occur in those below the age of 18.
Undifferentiated Pleomorphic Sarcoma Research. The Liddy Shriver Sarcoma Initiative is pleased to support UPS/MFH research. UPS is a rare tumor that usually affects adults. Treatment options include surgery, radiation therapy and chemotherapy. These treatments can increase survival but can also be very hard on the body.
