The proper therapy now would be to consult your oncologist.
As per the stage grade the therapy needs to be decided.
In your wifes case
Surgery for the remaining two metastatic masses and
Chemotherapy are recommended and radiotherapy may be indicated.
1. The synovial sarcoma is one of the less senstive malignancies to chemotherapy.
2. If their is any clinical trial I would recommend your wife to participate. Kindly, enquire any cancer hospital.

The stage is IV-A (reference below). It is a serious cancer, and I am not an oncologist. I assume you have one? Has she begun treatment?
Feel free to email me. I am an MD, just not an oncologist.Source(s): http://jco.ascopubs.org/cgi/reprint/18/22/3794.pdf http://jco.ascopubs.org/cgi/content/full/18/22/379...
