Could you tell me what happens if you leave a benign tumor in your brain?

Depends

Cerebrum
Benign brain tumors include meningioma, vestibular schwannoma, and others. Treatment depends on a number of factors including patient preference and symptoms. In general if this tumor doesn't grow it won't cause additional problems but serial imaging would be required to make this determination, and many of these tumors are not particularly likely to shrink with treatment.

What is the difference between a benign tumor and a malignant tumor in somebody's brain? Are both deadly?

Cell type; could be

Brain
The brain is a confined space. Therefore, even a benign tumor may cause pressure or grow in a way that it kills a person, even though it is benign. Malignant tumors are usually based on the cell type, the number of cells in division, and the presence of necrosis (cell death). The most common malignant tumor is a glioblastoma multiforme. However, metastatic tumors to the brain are common.

How can a benign tumor of the middle ear lead to infection in the brain?

Obstruction

Cerebrum
One possibility is due to "mass effect" where the tumor blocks normal drainage patterns and leads to accumulation of fluids which get infected. The middle ear is right next to the brain so things can spread directly, or sometimes erode through the bone.

Dr. Gurmukh Singh answered:

benign overian cyst can turn into cancer?

Not likely

Cancer
Do you know that the cyst is benign? It not possible to know that without removing the cyst and having it examined by a pathologist. Benign and malignant cysts may look the same on imaging. Bening cysts do not turn into malignant ones, and certainly not once those are removed.

Dr. Hanford Brace answered:

Can benign ovarian cyst turn into cancer?

No

Cancer
I Qualify that saying anything possible in medicine. Benign means just that. There are pre cancerous lesions so one has to be careful when telling a PT something is benign. If your Doc is careful he will never say benign if there is some even remote possibility of cancer later. That is the way I practiced anyway. I hope whoever said that to you is careful!. Always be vigilant watching it!
