Types of Fibrosarcoma

Alveolar Soft Part Sarcoma (9581/3)
Alveolar Soft Part Sarcoma (9581/3)

Alveolar soft part sarcoma (ASPS) is a distinct histologic soft tissue sarcoma subtype. 1 ASPS is an uncommon tumor, typically occurring in adolescent and younger adult patients. It accounts for 0.5 to 1% of all soft tissue sarcomas.

Angiosarcoma
Angiosarcoma

Angiosarcoma is a cancer of the inner lining of blood vessels, and it can occur in any area of the body. The disease most commonly occurs in the skin, breast, liver, spleen, and deep tissue.

Chondrosarcoma These Tumors Develop From Cartilage Cells
Chondrosarcoma These Tumors Develop From Cartilage Cells

These tumors resemble blood or lymphatic vessels. Chondrosarcoma. These tumors develop from cartilage cells. Ewing’s sarcoma. This subtype arises from very primitive cells in the body. It can start in either soft tissue or bone. Fibrosarcoma. This is cancer of fibrous tissue. Malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumor.

Dermatofibrosarcoma Protuberans (DFSP) (8832/3–8833/3)
Dermatofibrosarcoma Protuberans (DFSP) (8832/3–8833/3)

Dermatofibrosarcoma Protuberans (DFSP) is a rare type of cancer, a soft tissue sarcoma that develops in the deep layers of skin. It is sometimes described as having tentacles that can grow into surrounding fat, muscle and even bone.

Desmoid Tumor (8821/1–8822/1)
Desmoid Tumor (8821/1–8822/1)

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 (8806/3)
Desmoplastic Small Round Cell Tumor (8806/3)

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.

Epithelioid sarcoma is a rare sarcoma that affects young adults with an affinity to the distal upper extremity (hand and forearm). It mostly starts as a painless slow growing mass, but not uncommonly presents as a multifocal lesion.

Ewing's Sarcoma

Extraskeletal Chondrosarcoma (9220/3)

A sarcoma is a cancer that arises from transformed cells of mesenchymal origin. Thus, malignant tumors made of cancellous bone, cartilage, fat, muscle, vascular, or hematopoietic tissues are, by definition, considered sarcomas.

Fibrosarcoma

Undifferentiated Pleomorphic Sarcoma

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.
