We offer the most effective, quick and affordable treatment for leiomyosarcoma,
thanks to the world’s largest hospital network.

Leiomyosarcoma is an aggressive, rare type of cancer that forms in smooth, involuntary muscles. Smooth muscles are distinct from skeletal muscles, which we use to move our bodies. Smooth muscle tissue can be found in several areas of your body, including your urinary system, digestive system, uterus and blood vessels. Leiomyosarcoma is considered a soft tissue sarcoma.

Leiomyosarcoma most often begins in the abdomen or uterus. It starts as a growth of abnormal cells and often grows quickly to invade and destroy normal body tissue. Signs and symptoms of leiomyosarcoma depend on where the cancer starts. They might include pain, weight loss, and a growing lump or swelling that can be felt through the skin.

Treatment of Leiomyosarcoma

Which treatments are likely to be most effective for you depend on the location and size of your leiomyosarcoma, as well as whether it has spread to other areas of your body. 

In general, treatments for leiomyosarcoma may include:

  • Surgery. The goal of surgery is to remove all of the leiomyosarcoma. But that might not be possible if the cancer has grown very large or has grown to involve other nearby organs. Instead, your surgeon may remove as much of the cancer as possible.
  • Radiation therapy. Radiation therapy uses powerful energy beams, such as X-rays and protons, to kill cancer cells. During a radiation therapy session, you lie on a table while a machine moves around you and directs the energy beams into your body. Radiation therapy might be recommended after surgery to kill any cancer cells that might remain.
  • Chemotherapy. Chemotherapy is a drug treatment that uses powerful chemicals to kill cancer cells. It might be recommended if the leiomyosarcoma can’t be removed completely with surgery or if the cancer spreads to other areas of the body.
  • Targeted drug therapy. Targeted drug treatments focus on specific abnormalities present within cancer cells. By blocking these abnormalities, targeted drug treatments can cause cancer cells to die. Targeted drug therapy might be an option for advanced leiomyosarcoma.
