If you are diagnosed with a desmoid tumor it is recommended that you be evaluated in a major, academic hospital with experts in sarcoma. Due to the rarity of desmoid tumors, they are often misdiagnosed or mistreated. Patients with desmoid tumors should be evaluated by a multi-disciplinary team including surgeons, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, geneticists and nurses.
