What is Leiomyosarcoma?

A leiomyosarcoma belongs to a group of rare cancers called soft tissue sarcomas. Sarcomas are cancers that develop in the supporting or connective tissues of the body, such as muscle, fat, nerves, blood vessels, bone and cartilage.  Leiomyosarcomas are one of the more common types of sarcoma to occur in adults. They start in smooth muscle tissue.  These tissues are responsible for involuntary movements in the body and are found on the walls of muscular organs such as the heart, stomach and the walls of blood vessels.  This means that leiomyosarcomas can start anywhere in the body. Common places are the walls of the womb (uterus), the limbs and the digestive system, particularly the stomach.

Signs and symptoms of Leiomyosarcoma

People with early leiomyosarcoma often do not have any symptoms. Most leiomyosarcomas are diagnosed after a person develops symptoms. These may include:

  • a lump or swelling
  • abdominal discomfort or bloatedness
  • swelling or pain in any area of the body
  • bleeding from the vagina in menopausal women or a change in periods for women who have not yet had the menopause.

Of course, these symptoms could arise from many different causes, which can often delay the diagnosis of this form of cancer.

Leiomyosarcoma is typically detected when a patient undergoes endoscopy, an ultrasound, CT scan, MRI and / or a biopsy.


Traditional treatment options for Leiomyosarcoma

The usual treatment for a leiomyosarcoma is surgery, wherever possible, to remove the tumor. This may be followed by radiotherapy.  Chemotherapy |//........is also used for some leiomyosarcomas. This may be to try to reduce the chances of the leiomyosarcoma coming back or to treat a leiomyosarcoma that has spread.
