Desmoid tumors do not metastasize and are not classified as malignant. They tend to be locally aggressive, infiltrative, and destructive. They may also be known as aggressive fibromatosis.

Desmoid tumors can occur in any soft or connective tissue throughout the body, but are usually categorized into four general areas: abdominal wall; extremities/shoulder and pelvic girdles/chest wall; intraabdominal/retroperitoneal/pelvic cavity; head and neck/intrathoracic.
