Soft tissue tumors are abnormal masses of nerve, blood vessel, fat, joint and muscle tissue. They can be benign (non-cancerous) or malignant (cancerous), and can develop in the hands, legs, neck, head and trunk regions. Soft tissue tumors are surgically removed by various procedures depending on the type and severity.
All surgical procedures may be combined with chemotherapy (drugs) and/or radiation therapy (high dose radiation) to kill and stop the spread of the tumor.
As with all surgical procedures, surgery for soft tissue tumors may be associated with certain complications such as bleeding, infection at the surgical site, injury to surrounding tissues and recurrence of the tumor.
