I was diagnosed with this cancer at age 40 in 1999. Right knee. Radical surgery followed by 35 radiation treatments. Leg now looks goofy but works fine. I am willing to share any information that may be of benefit to you. Let me know! Kelvin

Hello there,

My father just had a surgery for a malignant tumor which doctors say is Pleomorphic Liposarcoma. Below is the Biopsy report, I do not know what it is and what I need to do now. I consulted two doctors, and they have two different views. Can you please advise and help.

HISPATHOLOGY ( BIOPSY REPORT )

CLINICAL DETAILS PROVIDED
Right Adrenal Spindle cell tumor

SPECIMEN
Right adrenal mass

GROSS FINDINGS
Received modular mass, weigh 1.6kg measuring 22*14*12cm . External surface is smooth and congested. Cut surface yellowish tissue with areas of hemorrhage. Adrenal gland identified at one pole.

MICROSCOPIC FINDING
Sections studied from various levels show a highly cellular lesion composed of spindle shaped cells with elongated vesicular nuclei, moderate nuclear pleomorphism. Frequent mitotic figures are seen 12-14/10. There are scattered giant cells in a myxoid background. Tumor is well circumscribed. Areas of necrosis are seen.

IMPRESSION
High Grade Sarcoma
Features are suggestive of Pleomorphic Liposarcoma.
