Benign neoplasm can happen to you anywhere?

Yep! They can!

Muscle_system
Benign neoplasms are non-cancerous growths. They can show up anywhere, kind of like moles. We tend to get more of them as we age. Usually they don't cause problems, unless they are big and pressing on something important (like your brain). It's a fancy word for a lump or bump that's not cancer.

Describe the features of a benign neoplasm.?

Varies

Neoplasms
Benign = non-cancer. Neoplasm = tumor or mass. So, the features of a non-cancerous mass depend on what it is -- that is what cell it is derived from, location, etc.

How do dysplasia and benign neoplasm differ?

Pre-cancer

Dysplasia
Dysplasia = pre-cancer. Benign (=non-cancer) neoplasm (=growth or "tumor"). I don't like the word "tumor" because even though it may be benign it is confusing to many people

Dr. ROBERT Uyeda answered:

How are carcinoma in situ and benign neoplasm different?

Good question

and difficult to tell sometimes. The most straightforward way to put it is that a benign neoplasm will never turn into an invasive malignancy within your lifetime. CIS will eventually turn into one. But, because we don't live forever, CIS might not turn into a malignancy during one's lifetime anyway. Pathologists can usually, but not always, tell the difference by microscopic cell exam.

What does benign neoplasm kidney mean? Does it have to come out? Will it take over my kidney?

Non-cancerous growth

Diabetic_nephropathy
Benign means non-cancerous, and neoplasm means new growth. So you have a growth on your kidney that is not cancerous. If this was diagnosed by an imaging test (CAT scan), you might need a biopsy in the future. You might need follow-up scans. But a benign neoplasm does not need to come out, unless it grows over time. And no, it won't take over your kidney! (Now hopefully you can sleep tonight!)

What are the chances that a "soft tissue benign neoplasm" on my pinky finger will grow big enough to cause my pinky finger to be dysfunctional?

Up to you

Extremity-upper-hand-thumb
chance is small as you would notice it and would go to seek for medical attention if you start having more problem with it. it is in your finger so it is easily to be seen.

What are the harmful effects from small benign neoplasms?

Depends on location.

Brain
Even benign tumors (those with no potential to spread) can cause serious problems. The side-effects are related to where the tumor is located. A small benign tumor in the brain can have significant effects; a small tumor on the vocal cords can effect the voice, etc.

What distinguishes cancer cells from the cells of benign neoplasms?

Disordered growth

Benign_tumor
Benign tumors grow locally and do not spread. Under the microscope, the cells look like the gland they are from and they are not invading. Cancer cells have disordered growth, frequently do not look like the originating gland and show invasion.
