Dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans. Definition

Medical Definition: Dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans

Type of tumor that begins as a hard nodule and grows slowly. These tumors are usually found in the dermis (the deepest layer of the two main layers of tissue that forms the skin) of the limbs or trunk. They can grow in the surrounding tissue, but do not spread to other parts of the body. These tumors are associated with giant cell fibroblastoma.
