Answer

Consultation with the following specialists may be warranted:

  • Oncologist: When malignancy is strongly suspected or when previous incisional biopsy reveals liposarcoma, consultation with an oncologist prior to the definitive surgical procedure is recommended.

  • Radiation oncologist: Adjuvant therapy may be indicated in cases in which excision is incomplete. In such cases, consultation with a radiation oncologist is recommended.
