Myxomas are benign fibrous tissue abnormalities that I occasionally encounter in both my The Woodlands dermatology and Conroe dermatology offices.  Clinically, Myxomas appear as flesh colored nodules.  They may appear as a solitary lesion or multiple small papules.  Myxomas are occasionally seen in genetic syndromes such as the Carney Complex, in which patients may have myxomas in the atrium of the heart which can be life threatening.  Myxosarcoma is a malignant counterpart to Myxomas that typically arises in the subcutaneous tissue.Myxoma | perri dermatology
