Introduction: Soft tissue tumors are tumors originating from non-epithelial tissues of the body and are seen in extra skeletal location. They do not include glia, reticulo-endothelial system and other supporting tissues of different parenchymal organs. Classification of soft tissue  tumors has histogenetic basis, based on the adult tissue to which they bear a resemblance.
Objective: To evaluate the histomorphological features of benign soft tissue tumors in the different age groups and gender as seen in a medical college of North India, giving clue about prevalence of disease morphology in particular region.
Materials and Methods: This study was retrospective and was done in the department of Pathology, T. S. Misra Medical College and Hospital, Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh. All biopsies diagnosed as benign soft tissue tumors in our Pathology department during study period of two years and eight months were reviewed retrospectively in the present study.
Results and Conclusion: Benign soft tissue tumors in our region have the peak age of incidence in the fourth decade of life. They are slightly more common in males with male: female ratio of 1.6:1. Commonest benign soft tissue tumor is lipomatous tumor. Extremities are the commonest site of these soft tissue tumors.
