Diagnosis : pleomorphic sarcoma

Posted by 1rcook @1rcook, Apr 20 9:04am

The past 3 months my husband has been seeing different doctors for what was once a small bump on his back. It's now about 10cm. We've been told everything from "it's a torn muscle, to its a hematoma, to melanoma and just yesterday we received pathology reports back in his patient portal, with a diagnosis of pleomorphic sarcoma. We've not heard anything from his doctor and she got the results 2 days ago. We don't have many options for good oncologists in our area and her follow up has been very slow. We are hoping to get a 2nd opinion to find out about treatment options.

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Cancer Support Group.

I am interested in a virtual 2md opinion if possible..has anyone tried this option with Mayo clinic?


@1rcook, Mayo Clinic welcomes both new and existing patients for virtual and in-person care, including elective surgeries, in adherence with federal and state executive orders and guidance. Video and phone visits can be great options for appointments before, after or in place of face-to-face care. Appointment coordinators will recommend a virtual visit if it best fits your individual needs. Here is more information and how to get started with submitting an appointment request: http://mayocl.in/1mtmR63

I'd also like to bring fellow members like @beverlybooth @fasthealer @gemmalt @wandrew @kmm8 @sonnyfigueroa @me67 @zazu into this discussion. They, too, have experience with pleomorphic sarcoma.

Have you had further discussions with an oncologist about a treatment plan? How are you and your husband doing?
