Learn about Leiomyosarcoma (aka LMS)

Leiomyosarcoma is a very rare cancer which affects only 4 out of 1,000,000 people diagnosed with cancer.  It is a type of soft tissue sarcoma that grows from cells in smooth muscles.  The walls of the stomach and heart are comprised of smooth muscles as are the walls of blood vessels throughout the body.  As a result, symptoms are difficult to distinguish between what may be Leiomyosarcoma and what one might just dismiss as localized pain, swelling, or abdominal discomfort.  Trust your instincts and ask questions when something does not feel completely right.  Your health and well being is the greatest gift you can give to yourself and to those who care the most about you.
