In brief: Does it matter

Soft tissue usually refers to the tissue which holds other organs together and soft tissue tumors are mostly superficial in location.
Organs like liver, spleen , kidney etc are referred to as solid organs however tumor can arise from soft tissue surrounding these organs as well. Doctors sometime use this term loosely to explain things in lay terms.
