Chondrosarcoma is a type of bone cancer that develops in your cartilage, the connective tissue from which most bones develop. Like other types of tumors, chondrosarcoma is typically treated through surgical removal followed by radiation or chemotherapy, though the exact type of surgery that’s conducted to remove the cancerous cells may be different depending on where the chondrosarcoma is located.

A lipoma typically occurs just beneath the skin as a soft, painless mass, which may slowly over months or years. Most lipomas are benign and don’t require treatment. However, if it’s negatively affecting your visual appearance or causing pain by pressing against a nerve, it can be removed through surgery.

Liposarcoma is a rare type of cancer that develops in your fatty tissue. This type of tumor can grow anywhere in your body, but most commonly forms in your abdomen, thigh, or behind your knee. This type of tumor is typically removed from patients through surgery, followed by radiation or chemotherapy to kill any cancer cells remaining in the surrounding cells.

Soft Tissue Tumor

While most soft tissue tumors are benign, some are actually sarcomas. These growths are cancerous and require surgical removal followed by radiation or chemotherapy. As they grow slowly over time, soft tissue tumors may begin to cause pain if they place pressure on a nerve.
