    On 9/8/14 I had a 'mass' removed from the palm of my left hand. Luckily the incision is healing well, pain is minor. Had stitches removed on Thursday and was able to use hand normally yesterday, with no dressing or bandage. I had been waiting on pathology results...told it was sent to the university for further consultation. Late Friday, my doctor called to tell me the mass is Angiomatoid Fibrous Histiocytoma, a very rare malignant tumor. Chances of spreading are small, but is a possibility. Reoccurrence in the same spot may happen. Being referred to an oncologist and will learn more soon.






    tldr; I has hand cancer.

    You're not looking at adjuvant chemo at least.

    Local recurrence has been reported in 11% of patients and distant metastasis in 1%; wide excision is recommended as the treatment of angiomatoid fibrous histiocytoma. Local recurrence is attributed to the infiltrative margin and deep location of the tumour. Angiomatoid fibrous histiocytoma in the head and neck also can frequently recur, which may be a result of the difficulty of performing a wide local excision. If the tumor is unresectable or has metastasized, adjuvant chemotherapy may be helpful.
