What Is Soft Tissue Mass Removal?
The soft tissues of the body include the tendons, blood vessels, fat, lymph vessels, nerves, and tissues around the joints. When benign and malignant tumors form in the soft tissues of the body, surgical removal may be performed by the experienced general surgeons at Sierra Pacific Surgical. Soft tissue tumors that are cancerous are called sarcomas. As these tumors can vary in size, appearance, and behavior, patients in need of soft tissue mass removal should schedule a consultation at one of our practices in Roseville or Folsom, CA to learn more about surgical options for care.

How is Soft Tissue Mass Removal Performed?
Soft tissue mass removal may be performed in one of our state-of-the-art offices or in an accredited surgical center located within the Greater Sacramento area. Depending on the location and the size of the tumor, the general surgeon will attempt to remove the entire tumor, plus around 1 – 2 centimeters of the surrounding tissue, also called the margins of the tumor. The margins of the tumor will then be examined to determine if malignant or cancerous cells are present. If the tumor shows positive margins, additional surgeries or treatments may be needed. Once the tumor is extracted, a tissue graft or implant may be used to replace the tissue that was removed.
