my name is Vickie and I was just diagnosed with sarcoma. The mass was in the abdomen and was 26cm. I am concerned about what my chances of this reoccuring and is there anything I can do so it does not come back. The doctors said there is a high chance of the tumor coming back since it was graded G3. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 20:59, 26 January 2008 (UTC)

External links[edit]

Wikipedia's external links policy and the specific guidelines for medicine-related articles do not permit the inclusion of external links to non-encyclopedic material, particularly including internet chat boards and e-mail discussion groups. Because I realize that most normal editors haven't spent much time with these policies, please let me provide specific information from the guidelines:

  • This page, which applies to all articles in the entire encyclopedia, says that links "to social networking sites (such as MySpace or Fan sites), discussion forums/groups (such as Yahoo! Groups), USENET newsgroups or e-mail lists" are to be avoided.
  • This page deprecates ""helpful" external links, such as forums, self-help groups and local charities."
  • This medical-specific page reinforces the pan-Wiki rules, with a note that "All links must meet Wikipedia's external links guidelines, which in particular exclude discussion forums."

Wikipedia is an encyclopedia, and while it may occasionally be useful to patients or their families, it is not an advertising opportunity for support groups. Please do not re-insert links that do not conform to the standard rules. Any editor, BTW, is welcome to read all of the rules and perform an "audit" in the remaining links. Thanks, WhatamIdoing (talk) 21:13, 16 April 2008 (UTC)

ref 4 redirects to[edit]

That link is not helpful. Probably it redirects because the linked article doesn't exist anymore on

A google on taxotere gemzar soft tissue sarcoma finds three published trials, probably the author of this wikipedia article meant to link to one of them.--Helenuh (talk) 12:54, 17 June 2014 (UTC)

Notable Expert[edit]

I'm taking away the section about "notable experts" as it lists only one person and doesn't really add anything of value (it's also very unusual to have paragraphs like that on Wikipedia). Feel free to reintroduce it in an expanded form if you disagree. (talk) 16:10, 14 September 2016 (UTC)
