Hi, I was just diagnosed 3days ago. I had surgery on oct.6 when they removed a lump.my local hospital thought it may be a spindle cell fibrous tumor. but, when they removed it a specialist could not identify it. then it was sent to university of wisconsin and now i am told it was a malignant tumor and i have low grade Liposarcoma. the local hospital saw benign cells where as uw saw malignant ones. i have already seen the onocologist and they are discussing my case this thursday with the board of drs. I am scared to death. What i read so far is confusing.my tumor was 4x4x2mm 2 and1/2 inches i think.they said they saw several diff. cells and my appt. is monday. the dr. said thy have to get results of the perimeter around the tumor ,how many round cells and what % is malignant if over 5%.
