Answer

In addition, as part of this classification, soft tissue tumors were divided into the following four categories as appropriate:

  • Benign
  • Intermediate (locally aggressive)
  • Intermediate (rarely metastasizing)
  • Malignant

This terminology should not be confused with the grading system mentioned above, in which grade 2 may be regarded as intermediate.
