Question to any Angiosarcoma of Breast survivors-
Had mastectomy 2 months ago -
All was good for 6 weeks -chest wall and incision looked good.
7th week out -
Had new lesion - bruising on chest wall - all around incision.
Have had 5 punch biopsies - all clear ...
Has anyone experienced these symptoms?
Doctors do not know what and why ... just have to biopsy each
new area...

    go to also facebook page angiosarcoma awareness. A number of young women there with primary breast AS. My daughter also. Are you going to a sarcoma center? I know that 2 of the ladies had a similar problem and it was AS but the sample either wasn't good enough for an accurate biopsy or the pathology department wasn't skilled enough. Please don't take a chance- I'm sure you must be very worried. Where are you located? Do please go to our site. Eileen
