Hello All,
I have searched the "Net" for information on Angiosarcoma. Came here as I cannot find much info on it. Has anyone heard of this related to breast cancer.

Thank you for any replies.

Unfortunately I too never heard of this, but I did find two informative websites. The second link seems to be a more comprehensive medical type site - but can still be understood by lay people.

the links are:

http://breastcancer.about.com/od/types/p/angiosarcoma.htm

http://emedicine.medscape.com/article/276512-clinical#a0217


If these links do not work just go to Google and type in angiosarcoma of the breast.

Hopefully there may be more replies from people who have had some personlal experience with this.

Good luck to you.

Hello- My daughter had AS of the breast (primary) . There is an entire "family " of angiosarcoma folks at www.cureasc.org We also have a facebook page. So sorry you are dealing with it- If it is you that has it and you are a grandma, I am assuming you had breast cancer treated previously with radiation and now have secondary angiosarcoma? You will find much info, help and comfort on our FB page and also on our website. Good luck to you

Yes, 3 out of 4 Drs seem to think that is what it is. Caused from Radiation Treatmens. will know in few days. sometimes not knowing this time is relieving my mind. Once the Dx is made then have to make decisions again as to Round 2.

Hope all is well with you.
