Answer

In general terms, treatment of fibrosarcoma involves a combination of adequate local tumor control and avoidance or treatment of distant disease. Many factors are involved and contribute to the ultimate prognosis. To obtain local control, surgical resection with a cuff of normal tissue (wide margins) and reconstruction of the subsequent defect are necessary.
