Hi doctor,

I was diagnosed with fibromatosis of muscle, ligament, and fascia after having a fibromatosis removed from my thigh. But the margins were not clear. I have been scheduled with a second surgery now. I am concerned about the diagnosis. The clinical history shows a soft tissue mass. The gross description shows a lobular yellow adipose tissue aggregating to 2.5 x 2.5 x 0.9 cm. The specimen was received in formalin, and it consists of two irregular friable portions of lobular yellow fatty tissue. Sections reveal a slight fibrous cut surface. I am attaching my laboratory reports. Please help.



Welcome to

I have gone through the reports (attachment removed to protect patient identity). Your report does not show a definite diagnosis. I am taking fibromatosis as the final diagnosis. Fibromatosis is also called as a desmoid tumor. It is a slow-growing disease. It has an uncontrolled proliferation of fibrous tissue in the body. It starts as a slight tightening of the skin, and it slows down the functions of the structures or organs it involves. It is treated by doing surgery. Some oral medications can keep them under control.
