No: Fibroadenomas are the most common breast tumor. Excision is not necessary unless there are features that would suggest a rare variant of fibroadenomas, called phyllodes tumors. Despite this, some women will still opt for excision due to the size of the tumor and/or fear surrounding constantly feeling a lump in one's breast. If reassurance fails, the surgery itself is quite minimal. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

The nerves in the area are important for eating, talking and - of course - your facial expressions and attractiveness. Find an ENT you trust to get this under control. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
If both benign and malignant tumours are formed by abnormal cell division, what makes malignant tumours cancerous and benign tumours non-cancerous?
Power to invade: Tumors are in fact caused by the accumulation of a series of genetic mutations. If something is going to be cancer, the mutations destabilize the genome and eventually mutations give the ability of the cells to invade and spread as they do early after conception. The idea that tumors are "cells dividing too rapidly" is fundamentally wrong and confusing -- it's the loss of controls. ...Read more
No.: By definition, a benign tumor does not metastasize (spread to other sites by invading the blood stream or lymphatic system). Extremely rare cases of 'parasitic' or implanted benign tumors (eg leiomyomas of the uterus) are recognized to occur in sites outside their normal origin, but this is thought to be a result of some form of tissue transplantation, and not true tumor ''metastasis' ...Read more

Benign tumor?: Hi. I'm sorry about the parotid gland; usually the lemon drops during the therapy period prevent that.

Confer with the ENT surgeon you're seeing about risks vs. benefits of removal. Good luck! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
"tumor" literally translates as "mass", so even a fresh bruise could be called a "tumor". Doctors use the term "neoplasm" (tranlates literally as new growth) to describe tumors that are abnormal growths of cells. These may be benign or malignant; "malignant" = cancer. In everyday usage, we use "tumor" ...Read more
A tumor by any other name is a growth. It can be either benign or malignant, differentiated based upon the potential to spread (a malignant tumor is, by definition, a cancer). The best way to determine this is by a tissue biopsy, but we can make better predictions based on the organ of origin, physical ...Read more
