Thanks for posting your query.
Fibrodermatosarcoma protuberans is a benign tumor which may become malignant. Metastasis is rare.
It is a locally aggressive tumor with high rate of recurrence.
It is not XXXXXXX for your life. Surgical removal may be followed by a radiotherapy to avoid the recurrence. You only need to keep an eye on the lesion and get it properly treated.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.
Dr. Praveen Tayal.
