It is known that the diagnosis of these tumors can be delayed due to the lack of specific symptoms, and this delay in diagnosis and the large size that these lesions can reach significantly influence the prognosis and treatment of the disease, sometimes putting in danger, the functional preservation of the affected limb. The main objective in the treatment is to preserve the limb.
