Myoepithelial neoplasm -- recommendations?

I recently had a tumor removed from my hand and pathology showed a diagnosis of Myoepithelial neoplasm, which is extremely rare. (And I think even more so on the hand.) Pathology showed the tumor to be "at least borderline malignant and treated accordingly." Does anyone know of a specialist who treats soft tissue sarcomas---and has experience with this type of tumor specifically? (It's so rare, there's not much in the medical literature about it.) I would appreciate any advice to consider. Thank you---

Just curious if the tumor was fully removed by surgery or if further treatment is recommended?  CTCA does treat soft tissue sarcomas. We would be happy to discuss this directly with you at your convenience at 847-342-6493.
