To help determine the best treatment options, doctors at Mayo Clinic combine the latest diagnostic techniques with experience in diagnosing solitary fibrous tumors.

Tests and procedures may include:

  • Imaging tests. Your doctor may order X-rays and other imaging techniques such as ultrasound, computerized tomography (CT) scan, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or positron emission tomography (PET).
  • Biopsy. To confirm a suspected solitary fibrous tumor, a doctor may remove a small piece of tissue for examination under a microscope (biopsy). An experienced pathologist can confirm the diagnosis and determine whether the tumor is cancerous.
