Liposarcoma

Official Community

Liposarcoma is a rare and slow growing cancer made of cells that resemble fat cells. In most instances, this often asymptomatic cancer occurs in the limbs where it is detectes as a lump. Nonetheless, about 30% of all liposarcoma cases occur in the abdominal cavity, where they are often asymptomatic for a long time. Liposarcomas can be further differentiated into well-differentiated and/or dedifferentiated (~50%), myxoid and/or round cell (~40%) and pleomorphic (10%).
