In brief: Important question

Great question. Kaposi Sarcoma is a rare tumor. So rare in fact that the doctors (pathologists) that make your diagnosis rarely encounter it.
You should immediately seek out a 2nd opinion from an expert pathologist for confirmation of your diagnosis. I have been trained in sarcoma pathology from MD Anderson Cancer Center. Contact me at david.stockman@orthopath.com

In brief: Many

Kaposi is caused by a herpesvirus.
There are several different settings which will dictate who diagnoses and then treats ranging from a family practioner/internist, dermatologist, or if in a patient with aids, an infectious disease specialist and a surgical or medical oncologist. The local distribution of expertise will dictate who has the interest and experience to render the care.
