Benign tumors, such as adenomas, fibromas, Hemangiomas, Lipomas, lipoblastomas, means these cells are not cancerous and they don’t grow or develop, or enlarge very slowly.
Tumor differs in size and type, and the benign ones do not invade nearby healthy tissue or spread to other part of your body. Lipomas, for example, grow from fat cells and most cases with lipomas are benign tumor in adults. Diagnosis of benign tumor depends on the locations and type. Tumor marker tests and imaging studies will be necessary. Cysts are similar conditions which may be hard to distinct from tumor. Actually, they are different. Tumor is an lump or swelling of tissue while a cyst is something similar but contains fluid or air, even other materials. Biopsy can determine whether a the mass is cyst or tumor.
Whether patients need a treatment or not depends on personal condition. If tumors causes no problems, doctors may just leave you a message “wait and see” and you need to monitor the growth of tumor regularly. But if your tumor causes problems or symptoms, and a surgery may be necessary. The goal of surgery is to cut down the tumor spread to surrounding tissues. Besides, the other treatments may contain radiation and medication.
