Thanks for your query.You have a soft tissue neoplasm in your left thigh and as per scan report it is a soft tissue tumor from muscle.The nature of this tumor will be known only after excision to be sent for histo pathological examination.So please consult some surgeon at earliest who will remove the same and sent it for histopathology.Further treatment would depend upon the nature of the tumor whether it is Benign or Malignant.Depending on report
