Because sarcomas are uncommon it is important to find physicians who have experience with this disease. In the United States there are several locations that have physicians and teams dedicated to advancing the treatment of sarcoma. Patients with sarcoma should at least consider getting a second opinion at one of these centers. Click here to learn more about second opinions.

I have read multiple times about sarcoma but you shared in so comprehensive way on the topic.I recently read a publication on about the same topic then I realized about the gravity of the matter and how important it is to cure the disease before it becomes untreatable disease.We need to grow a little out of our bottles to show some interest in such health related matters.



Specialized sarcoma treatment programs should be considered by all sarcoma patients. These uncommon cancers simply arent seen enough by most oncologists and specialized programs offer better access to treatment and clinical trials. My son was seen at the Huntsman Cancer Center in SLC Utah and the treatment offered was very different than that available locally. We put together a list to help sarcoma patients know where to get a second opinion.
