This page collects resources for GPs including our Sarcoma Diagnostic Tool.

Sarcoma Diagnostic Toolkit

Early diagnosis of sarcoma is key to improving survival outcomes. General practice is usually the first place where patients present with a visible lump that may be sarcoma. GPs knowledge of the clinical presentations of sarcoma, combined with a prompt referral to a specialist sarcoma centre for diagnosis and treatment, can make a difference to patient’s long-term prognosis.

Sarcoma UK's GP sarcoma diagnostic toolkit contains simple yet effective tools outlining the signs and symptoms of sarcoma and guidance on how to refer patients to sarcoma specialist health services for diagnosis and treatment. You can download the toolkits below or get in touch to order printed copies.
