Big name poker star and friend to the Gambling911.com website Vanessa Rousso disclosed on her Twitter page Saturday that her husband Chad Brown just underwent surgery for a rare form of cancer.

Rousso tweeted: 

The cancer looks like sarcoma. 10 lb tumor was removed from retroperitoneal area in his abdomen. Nothing sure till we get pathology report.

Brown is also a known poker player.  In fact, the couple met at the World Poker Tour (Season four) No-Limit Hold'em championship where Rousso finished in 7th place and cashed out with over $200,000.  As of 2011, his total live tournament winnings exceed $3,100,000.

So just how rare is sarcoma cancer?

It accounts for less than 1 percent of the cancers reported annually.

Thankfully, the diagnosis tends to be pretty good for those who have this rare form of cancer. 

Low-grade sarcomasare unlikely to metastasize. High-grade are more likely to spread, however, these typically occur around the lungs. There are varying degrees of treatment.
