What is Orthopedic Oncology?

Bone and soft tissue tumors originate from bones, joints and cartilages as well as soft tissues, such as muscles, blood vessels, nerves and fat tissue. “Sarcoma” is a “cancerous” process that begins in bones and soft tissues.

These tumors can be a lump or a mass in various locations of our body. Touching the lump may or may not cause pain. 

These tumors are usually diagnosed in children and young adults, but they can occur at any age. These tumors can be observed in people who have a documented cancer and are maintained on treatment.

A lump or mass that is recognized in the body is an absolute indication for examination. Following the physical examination, certain tests and studies can be ordered by the doctor. Imaging modalities, such as ultrasound, X-ray, MRI and Tomography, are used to evaluate the location of the lump.

The images acquired with these techniques can provide an opinion about whether the lump or the tumor is “benign” and “malignant”.

It may be preferred to re-evaluate the “benign” tumors at certain intervals. Even a benign tumor can compress the critical blood vessels and nervous tissues nearby and in this case, the preference can be surgical resection thereof.  The follow-up and the treatment will be decided jointly by the patient and the doctor.

If it is believed that the tumor is “malignant”, the lump or the mass is “biopsied” – a small tissue piece is taken – and the specimen is examined under microscope. A biopsy procedure is not a surgery. A very thin needle is used to take a very small piece of the mass with ultrasound or tomography guidance. The specimen is sent to the pathology laboratory for examination. If “malignancy” is reported by the pathology laboratory, the treatment plan can include chemotherapy, radiotherapy and surgical treatment alone or in combination.
