a doctor would ask.
Sarcoma, cancer of the connective tissue is quite rare (annual incidence of 10,000 in the US) and is often misdiagnosed or undiagnosed because of diagnosis difficulty. Sarcomas are often hidden deep in the body’s tissues and present with few symptoms until later stages. A man was misdiagnosed for a year before a correct diagnosis was reached. Treatment depends on the stage of the cancer.
