Dedifferentiated liposarcoma (DDLPS) is frequently diagnosed late and patients typically respond poorly to treatments. DDLPS is molecularly characterized by wild-type p53 and amplification of the MDM2 gene which results in overexpression of MDM2 protein, a key oncogenic process in DDLPS. The mainstay of treatment for RPS is surgical resection, and complete resection is the only chance for potential cure.

Cancer can be treated by surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, hormonal therapy, targeted therapy (including immunotherapy such as monoclonal antibody therapy) and synthetic lethality

Cancer can be treated by surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, hormonal therapy, targeted therapy (including immunotherapy such as monoclonal antibody therapy) and synthetic lethality. The choice of therapy depends upon the location and grade of the tumor and the stage of the disease, as well as the general state of the patient (performance status). Cancer genome sequencing helps in determining which cancer the patient exactly has for determining the best therapy for the cancer

Colon cancer treatment often involves open surgical resection as the primary treatment for localized disease. Other modalities include chemotherapy, targeted therapy, radiation therapy, and local ablation.

Oncology is a branch of medicine that deals with the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of cancer. A medical professional who practices oncology is an oncologist. The name's etymological origin is the Greek word ὄγκος (óngkos), meaning 1. "burden, volume, mass" and 2. "barb", and the Greek word λόγος (logos), meaning "study". Cancer survival has improved due to three main components: improved prevention efforts to reduce exposure to risk factors (.

Among the standard oncology modalities, surgical oncology is singular in that it lacks a separate board certification or even an added qualification mecha­ nism. 'Card-carrying' surgical oncologists are certified by the American Board of Surgery, as are all other general surgeons. What distinguishes the surgical oncologist is a set of cognitive skills rather than a specific armamentarium of surgical techniques. This different conceptual framework is derived from ex­ tensive additional training that leads to an in-depth understanding of the natural history and biologic behavior of the various solid tumor systems. Equipped with this perspective, the surgical oncologist is particularly well positioned to integrate the various available therapeutic modalities into a coherent care program for the solid tumor patient. As a central theme, the chapters of this book demonstrate that increasingly sophisticated diagnostic and staging approaches are helping to move chemo­ therapy and radiotherapy into the preoperative neoadjuvant setting. This fundamental alteration is based on the awareness that even early-stage solid tumor disease is frequently systemic at the time of presentation, at least on a subclinical level. And although the primary tumor may be controllable by surgery with radiotherapy, the uncontrolled (and initially clinically unappar­ ent) distant disease ultimately determines patient survival. The other perspec­ tive driving the neoadjuvant approach is an emerging awareness that for most solid tumor systems, neoadjuvant treatment responses can facilitate less muti­ lating surgery with comparable levels of local disease control.
