Benign Soft Tissue Tumours
Benign soft tissue tumours are more common than their bone counterparts.
These tumours can arise from any component of mesenchymal system.
They also have a wide variation in behaviour pattern, but are not known to metastasize.
Common examples of Benign Soft Tissue tumours are as follows:
- Lipomas (Fat)
- Angiolipoma (Fat & Blood vessel)
- Benign fibrous histiocytoma (Spindle cells)
- Neurofibroma (Neural)
- Schwannomas (Neural)
- Neurolilemmona (Neural)
- Hemangiomas (Blood vessel)
- Giant cell tumours of tendon sheath (Spindle cells & Synovium)
- Pigmented Villonodular Synovitis (Synovium)
- Myxoma (Myxoid)
- Glomus Tumour (Blood Vessel)
