Kaposi sarcoma is a cancer that causes patches of abnormal tissue to grow under the skin, in the lining of the throat, mouth, and nose, in lymph nodes, or in other organs. They are made from cancer cells, capillary, and blood cells. KS is created by infection with human herpesvirus-8. Many people contaminated with HHV-8 do not get KS. It usually happens in: People with weak immune systems, because of HIV/AIDS, drugs taken after a body organ transplant, or another disease; Older men of Mediterranean or jewish descent; Young men in Africa. The skin lesions might not cause symptoms. Lesions on the lungs can make it difficult to breathe. People with HIV/AIDS also take HIV/AIDS medicines.
