What Patients Say About Cancer Treatment at New Hope

What is Kaposi Sarcoma?

Battling a progressive disease starts with being armed with essential information.

Kaposi sarcoma (KS) is a cancerous disease that causes patches of abnormal tissue to grow under the skin, including in the lining of the mouth, throat, nose, genitals, lymph nodes, or other organs. In severe cases of Kaposi sarcoma, patches (or lesions) may develop in the digestive tract and lungs. Blood vessels, blood cells, and cancer cells make up these lesions.

Kaposi Sarcomas We Treat at New Hope Unlimited

There are four types of Kaposi sarcomas:

Epidemic (AIDS-associated) Kaposi sarcoma
The most common form of Kaposi sarcoma. It develops in people who are infected with HIV, the widespread virus that causes AIDS.

Classic (Mediterranean) Kaposi sarcoma
Classic Kaposi sarcoma mainly develops in older people of Mediterranean, Middle Eastern, and Eastern European heritage.

Endemic (African) Kaposi sarcoma
Endemic KS occurs in people living in Equatorial Africa. This type of Kaposi sarcoma usually affects lymph nodes and other organs.

Iatrogenic (transplant-related) Kaposi sarcoma
Also known as immunosuppressive Kaposi sarcoma, this disease develops in people whose immune systems have been suppressed after an organ transplant.

Kaposi Sarcoma Symptoms

Kaposi sarcoma often appears as marks on the skin with the following characteristics:

  • Red, purple, pink, or brown blemishes called macules
  • A tendency to merge into plaques and nodules
  • Occasional swelling and outward or inward growth into the soft tissue or bone

Other signs of Kaposi sarcoma may include:

  • Shortness of breath if the lining of the lungs is affected
  • Bloody stools, diarrhea, or physical obstruction due to gastrointestinal Kaposi

Causes and Risk Factors of Kaposi Sarcoma

  • Infection with HHV-8
    • The underlying cause of Kaposi sarcoma is infection with human herpesvirus 8 (HHV-8). In people with good general health, HHV-8 infection typically causes no signs and symptoms because their immune system keeps the virus under control. In contrast, HHV-8 has the potential to trigger Kaposi's sarcoma in people with weakened immune systems.

  • Infection with HIV
    • Men and women infected with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) have the highest risk of Kaposi sarcoma. Because HIV damages the immune system, it allows cells harboring HHV-8 to multiply. However, it is through unknown mechanisms that lesions form.

  • Organ transplants
    • Organ transplant recipients who are under immune system-suppressing medication to prevent transplant rejection are at risk of Kaposi's sarcoma. The disease is often milder and easier to manage than it is in people with HIV or AIDS.

Diagnostic Tests for Kaposi Sarcoma

Early diagnosis is key to improving your Kaposi sarcoma prognosis. To identify if a suspicious skin lesion is Kaposi sarcoma, your doctor may perform a skin biopsy, which involves removing a sample tissue for examination in a laboratory.

To diagnose internal Kaposi sarcoma, your doctor may order the following tests:

  • Fecal occult blood test
  • Chest x-ray
  • Bronchoscopy
  • Upper endoscopy
  • Colonoscopy

Bronchoscopy becomes an unnecessary procedure unless you have unusual breathing difficulties or abnormal chest x-ray results. Similarly, unless a blood test finds blood in your stool, there may be no further need for an upper endoscopy or colonoscopy.

FAQs

1. Are there ways to prevent Kaposi sarcoma?

Currently, there are no proven ways to completely prevent Kaposi sarcoma. But you can significantly lower your chances by avoiding the known risk factors for HIV, especially by avoiding unsafe sexual practices.

2. Is proper nutrition important in successful cancer treatment?

Most definitely. Kaposi sarcoma and other cancers are wasting diseases, and almost 50 percent of cancer patients succumb to their disease due to malnutrition. This is one of the main reasons we offer proper nutrient supplementation.
