My husband has been having a lot of pain in his hip and finally had an MRI that shows "there is an enhancing macrolobulated low T1 high T2 heterogeneous signal soft tissue mass which reveals post contrast enhancement juxtaposed between the left femur and the gluteus maximus musculature"

it goes on to state "findings most consistent with soft tissue sarcoma and other diagnostic possibilities include mfh, chrondosarcoma and less likely nerve sheath tumor" "tissue biopsy is recommended as well as orthopedic oncology consultation"

we cant get into Vasicek Cancer Center until Sept 15th and i am super worried.

Can someone please help me understand this?

it's crazy. I have liposarcoma I look like I'm going to have a baby. it's hard to find info. and it's hard to get surgery right away too. the dr. isn't going to tell you anything until he does surgery. then they can tell for sure how bad it is. i might get in for surgery this oct. but not sure. make sure you go to a hospital that takes care of cancer even if you need to wait. oh try not to worry life is too short have fun eat good food joke. that's what I'm doing.
I'm sure things will work out it just takes time. and a smile
