Comment from: cookie, 65-74 Female (Patient) Published: January 22

I was already diagnosed this year with a rare cancer, mantle cell lymphoma, and finished the course of treatment. We then discovered liposarcoma tumors, first on November 15. The oncologist said wait a month, now I have 3 tumors, giant size 15 cm by 9 cm, and the last one grew in two weeks. The surgeon says it would be extensive and deep. Despite being warned to stay off internet I am finding few places are qualified to handle this and such rapid growth, so I may decide to go to a big town, big university hospital. The previous story scared me and wondering where to go.

Comment from: Retroperitonial lipo, 45-54 Male (Caregiver) Published: November 26

My father during regular checkups was diagnosed with tumor, had undergone a surgery with removal of tumor and the disease was retroperitoneal liposarcoma with dedifferentiated and well differentiated liposarcoma. Nine months passed and then there was a sudden reoccurrence where the cells were stuck to the kidney. Again he was operated with the sacrifice of a kidney. As suggested by doctors no chemotherapy or grafting was given. Today after 3 months of surgery there is again a reoccurrence.
