What is tumescent liposuction vs other liposuction?

Yes.: The two are synonyms. By definition, it is a sarcoma that produces malignant osteoid (immature bone) that is seen under the microsope.

Most arise in bone, but there are rare soft tissue osteosarcomas (or osteogenic sarcomas, depending on which term you prefer). ...Read more

No: A lymph node replaced with malignant cells growing as a primary lymphod tumor or metastatic from another site which has spread to axilla will not shrink without treatment, either chemo or RT.
