Hello. The hisiocytoma (epitheliod histiocytoma) is generally a benign type of tumor
however there is some overlap between the pathology appearance of these benign tumors and other malignancies.
Desmoplasia is a fibrotic growth that is able to be seen under the microscope and with certain stains. This type of cellular growth usually only happens after an insult, i.e. in response to a cancer.
Basically there was a small mole (nevus) that had evoked a desmoplastic reaction from the skin included in the tissue they removed
So that finding alone means either hat they think the desmoplasia (bad reactive growth) was happening in reaction to the histiocytoma
to the nevus (mole) that happened to be in the tissue sample as well.
Regardless, they saw this fibrosis (desmoplasia) and suggest getting wider margins (taking more tissue) around the initial site of tissue removal.
That way, whatever the source of that desmoplastic reaction from your body is will be removed.
Does that make sense?
Or did I answer your question?
Do you need further explanation?
That sounds like an appropriate way to mangage this result
Did I answer your question?
I'm reading and rereading and sending this on to my partner to read. Thank you so far
