I had a lump they were "watching" for 6 years. I decided to just get it out and it was a fibronyxoid sarcoma under my right arm. I am currently doing radiation and then another surgery is to follow. The margins were not clear and because I was not put under...it was a local....everytime the numbing needle went into the skin and back out they are afraid the cancer cells went to the skin so I am getting radiation on the skin and in the muscle tissue.
I have never found anyone with a fibromyxoid sarcoma.....Please Please Please email if you have had the same diagnosis. The chance of it reoccurring is 68percent but with radiation and skin grafting it should be 10 percent. I am afraid of skin grafting. This is my second battle with cancer the first was in 2001 with thyroid cancer. I am 48 year old female.
