I have a tumor on the top of my left thigh. The MRI showed it as a possible lipoma. After much research I have found that Liposarcoma is often misdiagnosed as a lipoma. I also have a large mass in my left calf that has not had a MRI yet. I am concerned about this so I called University of Michigan Sarcoma Center. I faxed them my MRI report and they want to see me right away. I have an appointment on 8/12/11. I am curious about anyone elses symptoms, and/or, what your tumor looked like. My thigh is swollen across the top of my thigh in almost a wide rectangular shape. The tumor in my calf is the size of a medium apple and is more pronounced when I flex my calf. You can feel it either way, it's just easier to see when the calf is flexed. I have also found another mass on my right leg above my knee in the same rectangular shape as my left thigh. Both of my thighs are swollen in those areas and puffy feeling. I have also had severe abdominal pain for the past few months which has gone from every few weeks to almost everyday. It was believed to be ovarian cysts up until recently. My Gynecologist wants to do exploratory surgery to see what is causing the problem because my external and internal ultrasounds only show fluid and nothing else. I have also lost my appetite and don't know if it's the pain, my nerves, or an actual symptom. Please let me know what you think from your experience and if you have had any similar symptoms. Thank you so much for anything information you can offer. I wish you the best!!!
