This 43 year old man noticed a right sided
mass on the posterior part of his thigh. It had been
enlarging over the course of three months. He reported
pain on activities which had progressed to the point where
climbing stairs would cause pain overlying the mass. There
was no radiation, and he took Acetaminophen to relieve the pain.
However, he had stopped playing golf because the pain would be
uncontrolled by over-the-counter analgesics.
Physical examination revealed a tender
rubbery mass on the posterolateral aspect of the right mid
thigh. The 5cm x 7cm egg-shaped mass was mobile with
respect to the overlying skin, but fixed to the underlying
tissue. There was no local or regional lymphadenopathy,
and no evidence of infection.
