Does a benign tumour exhibit similar symptoms to a malignant tumour?

In some ways, occass: Tumor simply means growth. The simple definition of "malignant" includes the ability to invade and metastasize.

What are the differences between a benign tumour vs a malignant tumour?

Aggresiveness: In general the terms malignant vs benign refer the tumor's propensity to extend out from the central tumor and metastasize to lymph nodes and through the circulation to other places.

Had MRI to look my pituitary gland to see if there is benign tumour have letter asking me to come in to have a trh and metoclopramide test what is thi?

Hi prolactin: Hi. I'm assuming you have high prolactin. Do you have breast milk production and have your periods stopped? I think the TRH and metoclopramide stimulation test is not necessary. If you DON'T have breast and you still ARE having periods, they need to check for macroprolactinemia; it does't need to be treated. If periods stopped & you have breast milk and prolactin is high, just go ahead and treat! ...Read more

If they are very large, may require treatment due to propensity to bleed. The ultrasound appearance is suggestive, not diagnostic. CT or MRI can confirm the diagnosis. ...Read more

Being upset is bad: Being upset can cause all sorts of physical experiences. That's not surprising - these are mental processes. Being upset won't make the tumor worse, but over time chronic upset can do some physical damage from stress hormones. Consider supportive therapy and/or CBT to manage all this. Best! ...Read more

My husband has what appears to be a benign tumor on his 8th and 9th rib pushing at his liver, 5-7cm. Is it best to remove w/part of the ribs?

My husband has what appears to be a benign tumor on his 8th and 9th rib pushing at his liver, 5-7cm. Is it best to remove w/part of the ribs?

It is a bit complex: I hope your husband has been to an oncologist and even have a second opinion as to what is the best approach to his tumor removal. First of all we must have a biosy and find out the correct diagnosis (even if it is benign)need to know what it is?). I would be very suspicious about any growth on the ribs & treat it as benign. So take him to a cancer center where they know how to manage bone tumors. ...Read more

I have sharp stabbing pain in my liver. Doctors just found a mass in my liver that's a benign tumor. Should a benign tumor be causing so much pain?

I have sharp stabbing pain in my liver. Doctors just found a mass in my liver that's a benign tumor. Should a benign tumor be causing so much pain?

It depends: It depends on the size &of the tumor and location. If the tumor is located near the edge of the liver, it can irratate the liver capsule (i.e. Liver lining that has pain sensors). It can also cause pain if the tumor bleeds or ruptures. A smaller benign tumor would be less likely to cause symptoms than a larger tumor.

Not liver tumor: Vomiting is a sign of blockage at pylorus and reverse peristalsis causing gastric contents to regurgitate. The presence of blood can be due to a co existing gastric lesion or mucosal irritation from the vomiting. If this persists then gastroscopy and biopsy are essential to rule our mass or ulcerating lesion producing the symptoms. Liver tumors not associated with vomiting unless metastatic. ...Read more

My former endocrinologist told me that I was likely going to develop cancer from several mris I have had to follow a pituitary adenoma and benign liver tumor. Are mris causing cancer in patients?

Nonsense: Mris use powerful magnets to harmlessly and temporarily change the orientation of atoms in your tissues. They then use radio waves to visualize the image. The change of atom spin and orientation has no effect on the molecules or their function. The type of radiation that causes cancer is ionizing radiation. You get exposed to that with ct scans, xrays, air travel, etc. But not mris. Fear not. ...Read more

In everyday usage, we use "tumor" ...Read more
