How are genitourinary sarcomas diagnosed?

After taking a medical history and doing a complete physical exam, your doctor will order some imaging tests, such as computed tomography (CT scan). The next step is a biopsy, a procedure to remove a tissue sample to be analyzed in the laboratory. A pathologist (a doctor who studies the causes and development of diseases) will examine the tissue sample under the microscope to diagnose the sarcoma and determine its type and stage.
