Brief Answer:
Nonspecific soft tissue is usually related to fibrous tissue.

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear and welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

I understand your concern.

I already reviewed the attached report.

Nonspecific soft tissue is usually related to fibrous tissue.

They are benign and are not a matter of concern.

I recommend to do a CT scan and a biopsy for further evaluation of the mass.

High ESR can be related to an inflammation or infection at the area of pain.

Low RBC and hemoglobin can be related to a possible anemia, which requires a specific treatment.

Meanwhile, you can use anti-inflammatory medication for the pain such as Acetominophen 500 mg three tablets a day.

Hope I have answered your query.
Let me know if I can assist you further.
