4. Difficulty eating

Any cancerous tumor in the mouth or throat will make it difficult to eat food. With Kaposi Sarcoma, lesions can develop on any mucous membranes. This is the soft tissue skin that is found in the mouth and throat, inside the nose and both on the outer and inner part of the eyelid. When a lesion forms on these inner linings of the body, it takes on more of a wound form, as the area is consistently moist. It is not itchy or painful but they can develop and grow to make it near impossible to eat, and difficult to see.
