3.3cm soft tissue dens ant/sup mediastinum likely residual or reactive thymus tissue? Does ur need biopsy?
Could be either: The thymus tends to involute in adults and often is just a small vestige of an organ. It can however become active under certain circumstances. The most concerning issue would be a thymoma or tumor of the thymus gland. That is often seen in neurological conditions like myasthenia gravis. I would be curious to know how/why this was found. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Wildly variable: "soft tissue sarcomas" encompass over 100 different types of cancers, depending on what tissue it started in (fat, supporting tissue, muscle, bone, guts, etc.); within each tissue type, there are dozens of different cancers.

Have chronic cough, small 4mm nodule. 3.3cm soft density tissue in anterior mediastinum. etiologies residual thymus,thymoma,lymphoma. should i worry?
Probably not, but: Chronic cough in a non-smoker is never normal. I doubt that it is connected to the radiological findings. Based on the sizes of the findings I suspect you had a CT scan. See a pulmonary doctor to sort out things, both for the cough and the radiological findings. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Yes: Fibromatosis, while it doesn't have "sarcoma"in the name is actually a low-grade sarcoma. However, this only applies to cases occurring in the abdomen.

What would cause increased vascularity and inflammatory changes of the soft tissue surrounding a baker's cyst?
It depends: Depending on the body part being scanned, a CT can usually distinguish between normal soft tissue and abnormal soft tissue. Whether or not the abnormal soft tissue is a scar may or may not be easily determined. Scan parameters and clinical history play a role. ...Read more
Painless mass: Most soft tissue sarcomas, with few exceptions like synovial sarcoma, are painless. Patients and even some doctors are falsely reassured by the absence of pain. Sarcomas may grow quickly or very slowly, but any painless mass has to be evaluated appropriately. While a painless mass can turn out to be a benign lipoma, a sarcoma has to be ruled out. An MRI can readily diagnose a lipoma. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
