Leiomyosarcoma

Leiomyosarcoma, is a malignant smooth muscle tumor. Leiomyosarcoma is a rare form of cancer, and accounts for between 5–10% of soft tissue sarcomas, which are in themselves relatively rare. Leiomyosarcomas can be very unpredictable. They can remain dormant for long periods of time and recur after years. It is a resistant cancer, meaning generally not very responsive to chemotherapy or radiation. The best outcomes occur when it can be removed surgically with wide margins early, while small and still in situ. Hence, nurses need to be prepared to take care of the patients suffering from this disease.
