Tumours on the muscles are very rare. If the tumors appear, they are almost always benign. Malignant tumors in the muscles are rare but very serious because they grow and expand rapidly, and it is very difficult to treat them.
The first sign of the tumour is a visible bruising on the affected area, usually only one. If it’s malignant, it’s growing fast and it can be painful.
What to do?
Contact your doctor as soon as possible if you notice any bump on the body. The doctor will examine you, and if he suspect this bump is a sign of the muscle tumor, he will probably refer you to the X-ray and biopsy to find out whether it is a benign or malignant tumor. If the tumor is benign, treatment is not necessary. If it is still a malignant tumor, which is very rare, the treatment is performed by cytostatic injections, radiotherapy and surgery, if the tumor can be operated.
