Hi, I'm 29 and noticed a 1cm mass in my left thigh two months ago. Initially my doctor thought it was probably just a hematoma and I should wait it out. I had an ultrasound the showed a homogenous hypoechoic solid mass with peripheral vascularity and was referred to a surgical oncologist. I guess the vascularity and US pathology show are suspicious of a sarcoma.
This surgical oncologist specializes in Sarcoma so I was told to wait the 3 weeks it took to get an appointment with him.
I'm now wondering what to expect on my first appointment? Would he do a fine needle biopsy on the first visit? Has anyone else experienced that?
Also, if anyone else has had similar US pathology, I'd love to hear about that as well.
thank you everyone!
