2. Symptoms

All Kaposi’s sarcomas typically cause the same initial symptoms. The earliest symptoms include purple, brown, or red lesions or patches on the skin. In some cases, these lesions resemble bruises. The patches are small but grow larger as the condition progresses. Over time, tumors begin to form in different areas of the body. The exact growth rate of the condition and the tumors is usually dependant on its type.
