Soft-tissue tumors in children (<18 years) are a heterogeneous group of lesions. Masses may be asymptomatic or associated with pain or discomfort. Although most lesions are benign, developing an appropriate differential diagnosis requires knowledge of the clinical and radiographic characteristics of tumors and tumorlike conditions in children. A thorough history and physical examination, followed by appropriate imaging studies, when indicated, can establish a correct diagnosis and help determine appropriate treatment recommendations.
