Removal of Soft Tissue Masses
Soft tissue masses that arise on the back, abdominal wall or extremities can easily be removed in the office or operating room the same day.
The most common masses are fatty tumors (lipomas) or hair follicle cysts (sebaceous cysts). These masses are benign tumors. However, cancerous tumors must also be ruled out and that it is why an excisional biopsy is essential.
Most common cancerous masses are sarcomas that can arise from muscle, fat, joint, nerves or blood vessels. Cancers that arise from lymph nodes (lymphomas) must also be ruled out with biopsy.
Give us a call at JOSEPH SURGERY to have these masses evaluated. We are here to serve you.
