In brief: Location and type
Benign means it is not a cancer but features would depend on tumor type and location.

Doctors often define "tumors" to mean growths. Not all growths are cancer --think of skin tags.

In brief: Varies
Benign = non-cancer.
Tumor = mass. So, the features of a non-cancerous mass depend on what it is -- that is what cell it is derived from, location, etc.
