Sarcoma Nomograms: Liposarcoma Survival Nomogram

Our liposarcoma nomogram is a prediction tool intended to help determine the prognosis of a patient with liposarcoma, the most common soft tissue sarcoma, after the primary tumor has been removed by surgery. This tool predicts the likelihood of surviving five years and 12 years after surgery, based on which one of five specific liposarcoma subtypes the patient has, along with other factors.

Disease Specific Survival Probability

These numbers show, as percentages, the probability that a person will survive five years and 12 years after surgery to remove the primary liposarcoma tumor. This prognostic information can help patients and physicians make decisions about additional (adjuvant) treatments such as chemotherapy and radiation.
