However, not in the case of Leiomyosarcoma.
In, How Did I Get My Cancer, you can read how I found out my cancer, signs, and symptoms and how does my cancer look like.
Whenever you have the same diagnosis and you are reading this, the reason why I am writing this article is first, to share my experience with Leiomysarcoma and also to share what I had gathered from every research that I did in the past. The basis in writing this is not to compare everyone’s experiences with this kind of cancer. We may have the same diagnosis, yet, cancer can never be the same.
Remember: No matter how rare and how deadly Leiomysarcoma is, together we are strong.
If you are really keen to do your self-advocacy, Leiomyosarcoma can be found in websites that focus on a different kind of rare disease. Here are the recommendations of the website where you can get reliable information about your Leiomyosarcoma:
- National Organization for Rare Disorders
- National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences
- Mayo Clinic
- Sarcoma Foundation of America
The exact cause of leiomyosarcoma is UNKNOWN.
We are told about this fact for the nth times. BUT, when you ask all patients and survivors what are the symptoms, it varies and they are not the same! In my own experience, like what I talked in “How Did I Get My Cancer” a small lump that keeps growing and on the 9th-10th months, the pain grew stronger and it numbed my legs.
