fibrous tumour

fibrous tumour

A highly nonspecific term for a mass composed of fibrous tissue. While the term fibrous tumour is not a recognised pathological entity and is not used in the working medical parlance, it fills a lexical void that may be used when explaining certain lesions to a patient or other less medically sophisticated audiences.
