FAQs: Soft Tissue Mass Removal
In Abilene, TX
A soft tissue mass appears as a bulge in the skin and is usually round in shape, but they can also be oval or sausage-shaped. They can feel firm or soft and may be painful to touch if compressing a nerve or irritating other tissue.
In about three out of four cases, soft tissue masses are benign, but it’s always a good idea to have a consultation as soon as possible if you notice something. Benign, or non-cancerous, soft tissue masses are nothing to worry about, but they can cause pain and discomfort or prevent you from carrying out your daily routine. It’s a good idea to have any mass examined and removed when necessary.
The size and location of the soft tissue mass will dictate where the removal is performed and how long the recovery period will be. Physical therapy may be required as part of the recovery process. Ongoing monitoring of the area is important.
