2B5K/C49 Unspecified malignant soft tissue tumours or sarcomas of bone or articular cartilage of other or unspecified sites



The exact cause of soft tissue sarcomas is unknown but genetics and environmental factors may play a role.


Diagnosis of soft tissue sarcomas is typically done through imaging tests such as X-rays, CT scans, and MRIs. A biopsy may also be done to confirm the diagnosis.

Differential diagnosis

Differential diagnosis of soft tissue sarcomas includes other types of cancer such as lymphomas and leukemias, as well as benign tumors such as lipomas.


Treatment for soft tissue sarcomas typically involves surgery to remove the tumor, followed by chemotherapy and/or radiation.


The prognosis for soft tissue sarcomas varies depending on the type and stage of the tumor, but overall the prognosis is usually good with early diagnosis and treatment.
