fibroma is a tumor made up of connective tissue such as skincartilage or bone.  They are almost always benign and the vast majority are very small as well.  A cancerous fibroma is usually called a fibrosarcoma.  One of the most common types of fibroma is a skin tag.  However, they can occur in any type of connective tissue.

Fibromas are not dangerous and usually require no treatment or attention whatsoever.  The are occasionally removed as a cosmetic procedure, but the surgery can usually be done on an outpatient basis under local anesthetic.
