Soft Tissue Sarcoma (Rhabdomyosarcoma)

Soft Tissue Sarcoma (Rhabdomyosarcoma)

About three days ago I noticed this bump under my skin I didn’t think anything because from time to time I get these after shaving, but this one was different it was on the right lip of my vagina, under the skin and by day two it started to grow, still didn’t think anything until the third day I woke up in sooo much pain..went to use the restroom to find this hard lump (jumbo jawbreaker) had gotten huge! I get them beside my vagina, kind of along the side of the underwear and the leg bends. Some, like the one pictured on my index finger (last picture), started off as about the size of a pinprick and is now the size of an O in Arial 11pt font. The second flavor of ulcer is due to the herpes virus. Sarcomas of soft tissue are relatively uncommon, especially when compared with carcinomas, another type of malignant tumor. Sarcomas can be life-threatening, especially if they’re diagnosed when a tumor is already large or has spread to other tissues. I recently found one of these myself.

It is very sensitive to the touch-it’s hard to write or use a scissors because any pressure is quite painful. One can try over-the-counter orajel or saltwater rinses, but prescription medications help resolve these lesions more quickly. Skeletal muscle is located the arms, legs, and muscle that allows movement. Although they also occur in adults, rhabdomyosarcomas are the most common soft tissue sarcomas in children and adolescents. It only bleed though so I decided to leave it alone. If a soft tissue sarcoma develops in your stomach, it may not be discovered until it’s very large and pressing on other structures. If aphthous ulcers and/or herpetic ulcers occur with regularity (every month or two), there are some predisposing conditions to check out.

Another possible symptom is an intestinal blockage. This can occur if a soft tissue tumor is growing in your stomach. So I thought that switching to a hair removal lotion such as Nair, Marzena, etc. These will show up as a lump under the skin. all benign without any cancer potential. These tumors can also appear in the head and neck. Usually, the cause of a soft tissue sarcoma isn’t identified.

I don’t think I will ever be able to wear a bathing suit again. Kaposi’s sarcoma is a cancer of the lining of blood or lymph vessels. The fibroma actually involves the lining of the mouth (it’s not under the mucus lining like a mucocele). It’s due to infection with the human herpes virus 8 (HHV-8). It frequently occurs in people with reduced immune function, such as those infected with HIV, but it can also arise without HIV infection. I am going to see a doctor soon nonetheless…it is better to be safe than sorry. Radiation therapy often treats more common cancers such as breast cancer, prostate cancer, or lymphomas.

The color is almost always some shade of red, but can also be the same color as the surronding mucosal lining. Patients who received radiation therapy in the past should be checked for the development of new soft tissue sarcomas. Doctors can usually only diagnose soft tissue sarcoma when the tumor becomes fairly large because there are very few early symptoms. I used a topical cream and warm soaks helped. If your doctor suspects a soft tissue sarcoma, they’ll get a complete family history to see if other members of your family may have had any rare forms of cancer. However, please note that a papilloma is NOT cancer just like actinic keratosis of the skin (sun-damaged skin) is not considered cancer. This may help determine the treatments that would be best for you.

Your doctor will study the tumor’s location using imaging scans such as simple X-rays or a CT scan. I bought it at Walmart. Your doctor may also order an MRI. At this time, there are over 150 different strains of HPV. A biopsy usually involves inserting a needle into the tumor and removing a small sample. Sometimes, your doctor will use a scalpel to cut away part of the tumor so that it’s easier to examine. That”s actually the answer I was looking for, i have them too, i got a few pimple-like bumps in one spot on the side and they look kind of white just like when you would pop a pimple and i recently shaved, i think it might be because of some ingrown hairs or something, let me know if u find something out…..

The tissue from the tumor will be examined under a microscope to determine whether the tumor is benign or malignant. It can be found on the uvula, tonsil, palate, cheek, lip, etc. Stage 1 tumors are small and in a favorable location, such as the head and neck region. Stage 2 tumors are generally between 1 to 5 centimeters and in an unfavorable location, such as the bladder or prostate. They can be small, like a zit, or they can be fairly large, like a quarter sized lump. Stage 4 tumors are at an advanced tumor stage and have already spread to other distant organs. If so, the oral cavity should be examined regularly for recurrence and any suspicous lesions biopsied to minimize risk of oral cancer development.

If the tumor has metastasized, or spread to other tissues, this also affects treatment. Surgical treatment is the most common initial therapy. My doctor advised that this would only become worse if I did not shop shaving. If the tumor is in other known sites, your doctor can also remove those secondary tumors. Lymphoma is perhaps the next most common followed by the rest which are rare: acinic cell caricinoma, adenocarcinoma, mucoepidermoid carcinoma, verrucous cell carcinoma, etc. Lymph nodes are often the first places where tumor cells spread. In the past, doctors would often need to amputate a limb that had tumors.

she said to always keep your razor dry, so dont leave it in the shower and dont use it after you know its been too long. However, large tumors that affect major blood vessels and nerves may still require limb amputation. Any information provided on this website should not be considered medical advice or a substitute for a consultation with a physician. Chemotherapy is the use of toxic drugs to kill cells that divide and multiply rapidly, such as tumor cells. Chemotherapy also damages other cells that divide rapidly, such as bone marrow cells, the lining of your intestine, or hair follicles. its when they cut the bump and sent it to get results!! However, if cancer cells spread beyond the original tumor, chemotherapy may effectively kill them off before they begin to form new tumors and harm vital organs.

Chemotherapy doesn’t kill off all soft tissue sarcomas. However, chemotherapy regimens do effectively treat one of the most common sarcomas, rhabdomyosarcoma. Drugs such as doxorubicin and dactinomycin can also treat soft tissue sarcomas. i cant stop shaving tho… In radiation therapy, high-energy beams of particles such as X-rays or gamma rays damage the DNA of cells. Rapidly dividing cells such as tumor cells are much more likely to die from this exposure than normal cells, though some normal cells will die as well. Sometimes, doctors combine chemotherapy and radiation therapy to make each more effective and kill more tumor cells.

Stage 1 cancer will likely be much easier to treat than stage 4 cancer, with a much higher survival rate. Wondered if anyone else has had the same problem with this shaving gel? After initial diagnosis and treatment, you’ll need to see your doctor often for checkups even if the tumor is in remission, which means it’s not detectable or not growing. X-rays, CT scans, and MRIs may be necessary to check if any tumor is still present at its original site or other places in your body.
