Since CSN doesn't have a board devoted to pancreatic cancer, I would suggest visiting cancercompass.com as well as John Hopkin's University Pancreatic Cancer Discussion Board. It has members just diagnosed as well as someone one on the JHU Pancreatic Cancer board who's stage 4 and treated for 7 years: http://pathology.jhu.edu/n.web?EP=N&FL=PANCREAS_CHAT

Hello CSN colleagues,

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.


Right Adrenal Spindle cell tumor

Right adrenal mass

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.

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.

High Grade Sarcoma
Features are suggestive of Pleomorphic Liposarcoma
