About the book
Soft tissue tumors are a heterogeneous group of neoplasms with a large range of tumor types, each of which is characterized by unique features in terms of its epidemiology, pathology, clinical behavior, therapy, and molecular biomarker pattern of both diagnostic and therapeutic value.
This book will present an up-to-date overview of soft tissue tumors, which include both benign and malignant phenotypes. While most soft tissue tumors occur in adults, some are diagnosed in children and adolescents. These tumors present scientific and clinical challenges due to their high incidence, morbidity, and mortality. Therefore, there is a significant need for advanced diagnostic tests and novel therapeutic approaches as well as a deeper understanding of soft tissue tumors at the pathological and molecular levels.
This volume aims to foster collaboration between world-class bench scientists and clinicians in the fields of oncology, surgery, and pathology as they come together to highlight the complexity and diversity of soft tissue tumors as well as recent advances in their diagnosis and clinical management.
