Thanks for the query,

I am sorry to say that there is no definitive treatment which can stop angiosarcoma.

Now when doctors have refused surgeries,

the option left is chemotherapy or radio chemotherapy.

Please meet a oncologist and discuss regarding this.

Let me know if you have any other doubt.

you can ask a direct question to me on this forum, following the below link.

Wishing you a good health.
Thank you
