Dr. Amy Deeken answered

Specializes in Pathology

Tumor of fibroblast: Fibroblasts are the cells in your body that create collagen or scar tissue. These tumors are made of these cells that grow out of control and invade tissues where they don't belong. Even though they are benign, they can aggressively keep coming back if they are not entirely removed at the time of the first surgery.
