Abdominal Sarcoma Treatment
Sarcomas are malignant tumors that can occur in bone or soft tissue in the body. An abdominal sarcoma can grow inside the GI tract, abdominal wall or retroperitoneum. Diagnosis and treatment for abdominal sarcoma cancer require extensive oncological expertise and surgical skill to remove the tumor. Dr. Dmitri Alden is a world-renowned oncological surgeon with many years of experience in abdominal sarcoma treatment and diagnosis.
Symptoms of Abdominal Sarcoma Cancer
Soft tissue sarcomas are a rare form of cancer, only accounting for an estimated 1% of cancer cases. In the early stages, abdominal sarcoma will likely have no symptoms. Most abdominal sarcomas are painless masses that progressively grow larger. As they begin to gain size, patients may experience some noticeable symptoms. These can include:
- Abdominal pain
- Loss of appetite
- Unexpected weight loss
- Blood – vomiting blood, blood in stool
- Protruding mass in abdomen
Abdominal sarcoma most commonly affects adults, not children. Exposure to certain chemicals or radiation can increase risk, as well as some genetic conditions. Types of soft tissue sarcomas that may occur in the abdomen include gastrointestinal stromal tumors, liposarcoma, leiomyosarcoma, angiosarcoma and other tumors in the blood vessels or abdominal tissues. Each is unique and may impact different tissues within the abdominal cavity, requiring a customized treatment plan for tumor removal.
