The term Myxoid Liposarcoma is used for defining a very common kind of liposarcoma. It affects the connective tissues of the body and usually is accompanied with a lump. However, the lump would usually be painless and tends to grow slowly. And this makes diagnosis at earlier stages even more difficult because symptoms progress very gradually.
HOW IS MYXOID LIPOSARCOMA DIAGNOSED?
A general physician may diagnose the condition with a clinical evaluation along with patient’s detailed medical history. Imaging tests such as MRI, CT scan and an ultrasound may be performed as well as biopsy for definitive diagnosis.
HOW IS MYXOID LIPOSARCOMA TREATED?
Surgery is the best way suggested to get rid of the lump. However, complications may arise depending on the location and size of the same. Laser surgery is an option too. Post the surgery, chemo and radiation therapy are always suggested to prevent the risks of a relapse.
