Posted on Monday, March 2nd, 2015 at 11:27 am
Individuals who have just been diagnosed with uterine leiomyosarcoma (LMS) might feel restless and apprehensive. But as they learn more about the disease, they may be able to drive away their anxiety and fears to regain control of their lives.
Upon leiomyosarcoma diagnosis, it is important for you to seek the help of a sarcoma oncologist to give you a better view on the overall status of your health. He or she can also shed light about the nature of the disease, and may give you an idea about the treatment options that will be most appropriate for you. Your sarcoma oncologist may also work in collaboration with oncology nurses, pharmacists, psychologists, and dietitians to ensure that your health will be at the optimum while fighting against the disease.
Uterine leiomyosarcoma is oftentimes hidden in benign uterine growths. However, removal of these benign growths through laparoscopic procedures involving a power morcellator has been associated with the spread of leiomyosarcoma in the uterus. If you believe your cancer has been a result of a procedure involving a power morcellator, our legal team at Williams Hart might be able to help you file a case against the manufacturers of the device.
