Soft Tissue Masses

October 16th, 2013 by tmgadmin

Soft tissue masses, or tumors, are “lumps and bumps” that can occur in the skin, fat, muscle, nerves, blood vessels, or joints. A tumor is just an abnormal collection of cells that have grown too much. They can be benign (not cancer) or malignant (cancer). In most cases we do not know why they occur. It can be the result of trauma, radiation or chemical exposure, or even from viral infections. Some tumors are even genetic, meaning they have been passed down to you from your parents.
