This article discusses the epidemiology, diagnosis, and management of primary soft-tissue sarcomas (STS). These musculoskeletal tumors are a rare and heterogeneous group of malignancies, which are best managed by multidisciplinary teams in specialist sarcoma referral centers. Historically, the standard for local control of these tumors has been amputation. Evolutions in multimodality treatment have seen a shift toward preservation of the limb. Advances in limb-sparing surgery have seen the quality of life in sarcoma patients to improve drastically; however, unplanned surgical excision of STS remains a major treatment dilemma in the control of local disease.
