Sarcoma Tumour Committee

ivo.es Sarcoma Tumour Committee

The Sarcoma Tumour Committee is made up of a multidisciplinary team of professionals in: pathological anatomy, general and digestive surgery, dermatology, nursing, medical oncology, radiation oncology, radiodiagnosis, and traumatology.

The treatment of a tumour will depend on its typology, extension, and evolution. Depending on each case, there are therapeutic options available for surgery, external or internal radiotherapy (brachytherapy), or systemic treatments (chemotherapy, hormone therapy, drugs against molecular targets, etc.), and/or combinations of these.


What we call soft tissue sarcoma is a disease in which malignant cells develop from any of the cells derived from the mesoderm, with the exception of bone (in this case, this would not refer to soft tissue sarcomas, but rather osteosarcomas).


During gestational development, our tissues and organs are formed from one of the three embryonic layers called the ectoderm, the mesoderm, and the endoderm.

From the mesoderm, certain tissues such as muscles, cartilage tissues, joints, bones, connective tissues (e.g. tendons), blood and lymphatic vessels, and fatty tissues are formed.
