Patient with Kaposi Sarcoma affecting the mouth. Kaposi sarcoma (KS) is a cancer that develops from the cells that line lymph or blood vessels. It usually appears as tumours on the skin or on mucosal surfaces such as inside the mouth, but tumours can also develop in other parts of the body, such as in the lymph nodes (bean-sized collections of immune cells throughout the body), the lungs, or digestive tract.
