In this paper we study a multidimensional moving boundary problem modeling the growth of tumor cord. This problem contains two coupled elliptic equations defined in a bounded domain in $R^2$ whose boundary consists of two disjoint closed curves, one fixed and the other moving and a priori unknown. The evolution of the moving boundary is governed by a Stefan type equation. By using the functional analysis method based on applications of the theory of analytic semigroups, we prove that (1) this problem is locally well-posed in Hölder spaces, (2) it has a unique radially symmetric stationary solution, and (3) this radially symmetric stationary solution is asymptotically stable for arbitrary sufficiently small perturbations in these Hölder spaces.
