Ao Soft Tissue Sarcomas

Question

In addition to the main cancers on the AO list , the many STS cancers could easily be overlooked in filing an AO claim.The list has been posted here many times but best to refresh the list-these types of cancers often need a thorough review of the medical records to determine the exact terminology.

The VA is not going to hunt through your records to find these terms.Best to send them copies of any diagnosis that would warrant a STS AO award.

And a reminder that any AO cancer that metasizes can also warrant a potential secondary award for the metasized effect.

AO STS cancers:

    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.
