Soft tissue tumours encompass a wide range of pathologies.
Preoperative work-up is critical to determine the type of surgery required.
Radiological imaging provides anatomical detail of the tumour, its position, size, important surrounding structures and likelihood of invasion.
Sometimes these tumours require preoperative biopsy to confirm the pathology prior to embarking on surgery.
Surgery for small benign tumours can be readily done as a day procedure in Dr Noushi’s rooms.
Cancerous soft tissue tumours will require hospital admission and wider resection to achieve optimal local control of the cancer.
