Brief Answer:
it can mean a lot of things

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for your query.

You have not provided any sort of details regarding the background of the patient, symptoms faced and the detailed CT report. All of these are important in interpreting a CT.

If it is just a small vague soft tissue in an asymptomatic patient, then it is of little significance. But a soft tissue mass in a person with previous history of cancer can suggest recurrence of disease.

If you provide more details, I can guide you better.
Regards
