Common Name(s)

Fibromatosis

Fibromatosis refers to a group of conditions characterized by overgrowths of skin and connective tissue called fibromas. These fibromas are usually benign (non-cancerous). Fibromatosis can be classified by a person's age or by the location of the fibromas. The cause of fibromatosis is often unknown, and treatment depends on the individual disease.
