Abstract:

Soft tissue tumors are defined as mesenchymal proliferations that occur in extraskeletal, none pithelial tissue of the body, excluding the visceral organs. Both benign and malignant soft tissue tumors commonly present as a painless mass. A core biopsy, an excisional biopsy and an incisional biopsy are the appropriate technique used for diagnosing most soft tissue masses. This study was carried out to find out the proportion of different benign and malignant soft tissue tumors presenting in the hospital and to find the correlation between the clinical presentation and histopathological features of the soft tissue lesions. This observational study was conducted at a tertiary care hospital and patients from all age and sex groups were included. Detailed clinical data including history, findings of clinical examination and radiological findings were recorded. Site of soft tissue tumors has been categorised under head and neck, upper and lower extremities and trunk. In our study benign lesions comprise 89% and malignant 11% of total cases. The most common soft tissue tumor in our study is Lipoma followed by hemangioma, fibroma and schwannomas. Most common malignant soft tissue tumor in our study is high grade sarcoma with age predilection of 41-60 yrs age group.
