Bone and Soft Tissue Tumor Clinic 

Bone and soft tissue tumors form in the body’s connective tissue, which includes bone, cartilage, blood and fat. Some, but not all of these tumors are malignant or cancerous, meaning they have the ability to spread outside of the primary tumor site to other parts of the body.

Malignant tumors are often called sarcomas. Each sarcoma is named after the normal body tissue type it most resembles. For instance, rhabdomyosarcoma is a cancer (sarcoma) of skeletal muscle (rhabdomyo). Similarly, osteosarcoma is a cancer (sarcoma) of the bone (osteo).

Patients may be referred to this clinic to receive diagnostic evaluation of bone and soft tissue masses. Evaluation may include:

  • Needle biopsy
  • Computed Tomography (CT) scan
  • Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scan
  • Positron Emission Tomography (PET) scan
  • Comprehensive review of previous imaging studies

Physicians meet and manage cancer care in the Oncology Outpatient Clinic, in Suite 250 of the Baylor Charles A. Sammons Cancer Center at Dallas.  For more information, please call our patient navigation program at 214.820.3535
