History and Physical Examination

Synovial cell sarcoma usually occurs within the first three decades of life and generally is associated with a history of a small nodule that has increased rapidly in size. [17]  The mass often is painful and deep. Most commonly, it is situated around the knee, but it also can appear in the hands and feet. Patients may show symptoms several months before their diagnosis.
