Just diagnosed with Rhabdomyosarcoma

Hi everyone

I have just been advised a biopsy on a lump in my leg has found the contents were consistent with Rhabdomyosarcoma. From what I can find and what my doctor has told me this is extremely rare in Chrildren and even more rare in Adults. From what I have read though it is very aggressive. Questions I have are:

Could the biopsy be wrong? The results did not state it was conclusive, it just said one sample out of 4 was consistent with Rhabdomyosarcoma. Does consistent mean it is Rhabdomyosarcoma?

I'm being booked in now to see a Surgeon to have the lump removed, but would really like to know so that I can prepare .....

Re: Just diagnosed with Rhabdomyosarcoma

  At one time I was thinking of buying shares in kleenex.  Things have improved a bit now, thanks to the friends I have found here.  You have no idea how it helps at times..

 

I do hope everything turns out well for you.  I'll stay in touch, if that,s okay with you.
