Desmoid tumors are rare benign (noncancerous) tumors that develop in connective tissue — the network of tissue that supports and connects your bones, ligaments and muscles and keeps your organs in place.

You can have a desmoid tumor anywhere in your body, but they typically affect your arms, legs or belly (abdomen). Other names for desmoid tumors are deep fibromatosis, aggressive fibromatosis or desmoid fibromatosis.

Unlike cancerous tumors, desmoid tumors don’t spread but ,ay but they often come back if not treated correctly. Most desmoid tumors grow slowly but some are fast-growing and may get big enough to press on tissue, nerves or nearby organs.

Treatment of Desmoid Tumors

Desmoid tumors are often treated the same way as cancerous tumors. Specific treatment depends on several factors, like tumor size, location and the kind of symptoms it causes. Teatments include:

  • Surgery. If your desmoid tumor causes signs and symptoms, your doctor may recommend an operation to remove the entire tumor and a small margin of healthy tissue that surrounds it. But sometimes the tumor grows to involve nearby structures and can’t be completely removed. In these cases, surgeons may remove as much of the tumor as possible.
  • Radiation therapy. Radiation therapy uses high-powered beams, such as X-rays and protons, to kill tumor cells. Radiation therapy may be recommended instead of surgery if you’re not healthy enough for surgery or if the tumor is located in a place that makes surgery risky. Radiation therapy is sometimes used after surgery if there’s a risk that the tumor might return.
  • Targeted therapy: This treatment works by targeting specific genes or proteins that help desmoid tumors grow. Your provider may recommend treatment using a tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI).
  • Cryoablation: Your provider may recommend cryoablation if surgery isn’t an option.
  • Chemotherapy: Oral or intravenous chemotherapy drugs may be used to shrink or eliminate desmoid tumors.
  • Hormone therapy: Tamoxifen may keep desmoid tumors from growing.
