confused Hello! There is no forum for liposarcoma but it is still a soft tissue tumor issue blush I had about a 4in lipoma removed from my thigh two weeks ago today. It appeared and grew within less than two months. It was firm, fixed, painful, and located between the bone and deepest layer of muscle (quite deep seeded). It’s been 14 days and still no news about pathology/biopsy. I’m getting concerned and stressed. Can anyone tell me how good or bad this sounds? I thought pathology usually takes about 3-7 days...
Any help is greatly appreciated! smile

Hi Wolfie & welcome to Healing Well. We only have this forum & Prostate Cancer forums here at Healing Well. Have you been back to the dr since the tumor was removed. Did the dr say if he would call you over the phone with the results or come in for an appt? Since its been this long I would at least call the office & ask them what is going on. It could be this just fell through the cracks.

Take care.

Hi Susie,

Thank you for the response. They did say they would call. I have not been back yet but have an appointment on Monday to look at the wound. I called them last Thursday to schedule the follow-up and also asked if they knew anything yet- they said they had no updates for me at that point.
