Also called lipids, fats are an important part of our diet and carry out many essential functions in our body like insulation and shock absorbers for the delicate organs of the body. Fat is stored in the body in special cells called adipocytes and put to use whenever required. Liposarcoma is a rare form of cancer that affects the fat cells or adipocytes and is found in less than 1 per cent of cancers seen in the population. It can occur in the fat cells in any part of the body but mostly it is seen in the muscles of abdomen and limbs.
The initial symptoms are not obvious and depend on the location of a tumour and the level of metastasis that has taken place in the body.
The Symptoms of Liposarcoma are :
- Feeling of numbness
- Enlargement of varicose veins
- Swelling or lump formation under the skin which is painful
- Fatigue and weakness
- Nausea and vomiting
- Chest pain and difficulty in swallowing
- Decrease in the range of motion of limbs
- Chest and abdominal pain
- Difficulty and pain while urinating
- A feeling of being full soon while eating
- Blood in the stool
Similar to many other cancers, the main cause of liposarcoma also lies in the genetic mutation in the DNA of the fat cells. They multiply rapidly and uncontrollably forming a mass of cells or a tumour. Some of the types of liposarcoma stay at one part or area of the body and keep growing larger there while others grow very quickly and spread to various parts of the body.
There are many tests that can are sued for the purpose of correct diagnosis of liposarcoma like imaging tests ( X- rays, MRI and CT scan). The physician may also suggest a biopsy tests in which a small portion of the sample tissue is removed to test for the growth of cancer cells. Off late, many advanced tests like immunohistochemistry, cytogenic analysis, molecular genetic testing etc are being done in order to make quick and accurate diagnosis of liposarcoma.
The risk factors for liposarcoma may include the family history of sarcomas, radiation exposure, damaged lymph system and exposure to certain chemicals. It mostly affects middle-aged individuals. Curcumin can be a great anti-cancer agent which can stop the growth of cancer cells due to its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activities. The top quality curcumin is produced organically and without the use of dangerous chemicals by Bagdara Farms.
