Event Description

Talk Title: Prospects for Improved Treatments in Sarcoma. A public talk, organised by the Clinical Cancer Research Trust and the Caroline Foundation.
Soft tissue sarcomas are tumours that grow in the soft tissues of your body. These tissues include muscle, fat, blood vessels, or any tissue that surrounds organs.
The cause of soft tissue sarcomas is unknown. Your risk of developing them increases if you have certain inherited conditions, been exposed to certain viruses, chemicals or previous radiotherapy.
The symptoms of soft tissue sarcomas vary depending on the area where they occur. One of the main symptoms is a lump deep in your body, increasing in size, and painful and tender.
Soft tissue sarcomas are treated by surgery, radiotherapy, chemotherapy and biological therapy.
Event Chair: Prof John Crown
Guest Speaker: Dr Gary Schwartz, Columbia University, New York. To reserve your place email karen.culhane@ccrt.ie or phone 01 2213445.
