Malignant Fibrous Histiocytoma

Treating Localized Disease
Treatment of localized malignant fibrous histiocytoma may include chemotherapy followed by surgery to remove the tumor and surrounding tissue.
 
Treating Metastatic Disease
There is no standard treatment for cancer that cannot be removed with surgery or cancer cells that have spread (metastasized). In these situations, the prognosis is poor.
 

Prognosis for Malignant Fibrous Histiocytoma

A person's malignant fibrous histiocytoma prognosis will depend on:
 
  • The size and location of the tumor
  • Whether the malignant fibrous histiocytoma is localized or metastatic
  • How the cancer cells look under the microscope
  • The patient's age and general health.
     
In most cases, the five-year survival rate ranges from 25 to 55 percent.
