Masson's Tumor

Inquiring for a friend:
A 57 year old female had a growth in the arch of her foot.  She had it removed and it was diagnosed to be a benign Masson's tumor.  The dr. told her that this type of tumor was typically found in the mouth.  Is there any information or direction you can suggest to find out more about this unusual tumor growth in her foot?  Where can we find more information about Masson's tumors?

Thanks for your time anyway.  It does seem to be unusual case, as the dr's in Boston had to send the sample to Bethesda for an answer as to what it was.  I'll keep searching...
