Is it Malignant?

New year greetings. 

Just a month ago, my friend, who is a girl in her 20s, has been diagnosed with his strange oval thing on her right thighs just above the knee. I would say, in between the bikini line and the knee, this tumor, around which there are multiple of them are present. She got her x ray report, that shows nothing. Took her to the hospital where she is admitted now. The doctors got her MRI and ultra sound, biopsy and CT Scan reports. The ultra sound report shows that there are tumor present in that area. The x ray report shows that her bones are absolutely fine. The MRI shows, a white orb, scattered everywhere in her right leg. Know not what it is. The worse part is, the doctors saw her CT scan and compared that wid the biopsy. He is like, we are confused. Reason: The biopsy says, MAYBE its a malignant tumor where as the CT scan says, it is just a tumor. I am afraid. Is this a cancer or something? Anyone here who has the same symptoms? What is this white thing in the MRI? Her bones are fine, still it can be cancerous? Or you think it is something else? 

Please help me.

I hadn't been back to this forum in quite a while, I'v been very sick, ad the word of it is,I did not realize Iwas not logged in.  Therefore the very long time I spent veryfying iinfomration and writing a response to you was deleted bv accident.  So, all I can do is tell yot the two kinds of benig tumors I think the young lady, both visible on an MRI, which are either LIPOMA or FIBROUS sort of tumor that gets caught up in the nerves.  The lipoma generally can ge left alone unless it gets really too large, and the fibrous tumor that has created a coffee-coloration on the skin, usually one large one and several smaller one (like the girl you areasking about), then several docs need to be consulted (despite the wishwashy biopsy report that said it MAY be cancer, whereas the other biopsy said it was NOT cancer) to make sure exactly what they've got there, because sometimes they arenot at all what I am saying, there are just so many around, and since this isnot my "specialty," tht is I usually tlk about back problems (which also get tumors).  I hope this helpsand keep asking.

Thanks for the responce and I hope you are doing well. You know, now the doc has something else to say, he is like its not a cancer but just a mass f tumor and said, they will surgically remove it and then, tbey will again do a biopsy. They also said, they are going to inject some dye or something. The doctor is himself confused. First he is saying, it is not a cancer but then again, he is saying, he will examine that further after taking that surgically removed whetha its cancer or not. I mean what the crap is dat? He also said,  one onco specialist will do the surgery, why?

One of her report says this,

Macroscopic examination- received 4 linear greyish white tissue bits, largest measuring 1cm in length & smallest measuring 0.5cm in length. -4 all
Microscopic examination- sections show multiple cores of fibromusculocollagenous tissue with proliferation of spindle cells & osteoblasts. There is bone formation & a few mitosis is seen.
ki67- 15% activity.
Diagnosis- myositis ossificans.

I mean its so confusing.
