Hello again,
I was waiting for your reply.
I noticed you did not see the info request & went offline.
I am sending the answer so that you can see it when you come on line.
This may not be a sarcoma.
Other possibilities are there too.
Meniscal cyst is a common condition.
It may need surgery.
Arthroscopic or open surgery can be needed.
I feel you should not worry about sarcoma at this moment.
I would suggest to follow the advice of doctor.
I hope this information helps.
If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.
If you are satisfied, please rate my answer as good or excellent.
