Soft tissue masses also referred to as tumors or cyst expand under the skin and push outward generally producing a visible bump. Soft tissue masses are generally benign and non-cancerous. Though in the case of larger cysts or tumors, it might be indicative of a more serious medical condition. Excision of soft tissue masses is a medical procedure to remove growths that develop under the skin.
