Kaposi's Sarcoma
      #64861 - 05/14/03 06:46 PM

I am 18 and a few weeks ago I found a strange spot on my leg that wouldn't go away. It seems very much to me the startings of Kaposi's Sarcoma. At the moment, it does blanch when the blood supply to it is cut off, but as it is a new lesion I am worried if this "blanching" is only a temporary thing. I am gay and have had "safe" sexual contact with gay men for 3 years however, this has really scared me, as I've got another spot on my elbow and one on my chin now. I have been worrying sick, and now have tonsilitis... but catching a disease doesn't help prove in my mind that I've not got aids! I live in a rural area and as yet am unable to get tested for a few weeks yet. Please, somebody if you know ANYTHING about KS, especially if you have it yourself. I'd be most appreciative. Thank you.
