They often become very large and can extend up into the abdomen. * Mucinous cystadenomas are divided into three categories: * * * * Survival is largely dependent on the histology of the tumor, with a 10 year survival rate of 100% for benign tumors, 60% for… Read More
By the very definition 'malignant', absolutely. Malignant tumors contain carcinoma - or cancer. If left unchecked, they grow bigger, metastasize, and new tumors will grow elsewhere.

Malignant tumors. Malignant tumors have the ability to invade the surrounding tissue. Often malignant cells enter the bloodstream vessels and lead to tumor growth in other areas of the body.
A potentially life-threatening mass of cancerous cells. Malignant tumors are ambitious. Unlike benign tumors that generally stay put, malignant tumors have two goals in life: to survive and to conquer new territory. So, if you have a malignant tumor in your colon, it's going to try to work its way through your colon. If successful, it will see where else it can go. This is called metastasizing. In general, malignant tumors grow faster than benign… Read More
Two types of tumors are benign and malignant tumors. Benign tumors are usually harmless and grow at a slow rate. However, they can grow larger and become problematic. Malignant tumors are the opposite, growing at a fast rate and causing serious health problems.
Yes they do. That's why they are called malignant. If they did not metastasize, they would be benign.
What if ovarian cyst coefficient is 10.272..is she have a malignant cancer?
A benign tumor is a non-cancerous tumor, whereas a malignant tumor is cancerous. Some benign tumors can become cancerous. That is the similarity.
The four classes of malignant tumors go by the name of carcinoma, lymphoma, sarcomas, and melanomas. It is a potentially life-threatening mass of cancerous cells.
Germ cell tumors are malignant (cancerous) or non-malignant (benign, non-cancerous) tumors that are comprised mostly of germ cells. Germ cells are the cells that develop in the embryo (fetus, or unborn baby) and become the cells that make up the reproductive system in males and females. These germ cells follow a midline path through the body after development and descend into the pelvis as ovarian cells or into the scrotal sac as testicular cells. Most… Read More
Germ cell tumors develop in the egg-producing cells of the ovary, and comprise about 5% of ovarian tumors.

Radiation therapy kills malignant tumor cells by breaking them apart.
Cancer is the medical term meaning malignant and invasive tumor.

I was just told I had a "BEBIGN SEROUS CYSTADENOMA" which isn't malignant. Is there still a survival rate for benign tumors of this type? If so, what are they?

Chondrosarcoma most commonly affects the bones of the pelvis and hips. Bone cancer is a malignant (cancerous) tumor of the bone that destroys normal bone tissue. Not all bone tumors are malignant. In fact, benign (noncancerous) bone tumors are more common than malignant ones. Both malignant and benign bone tumors may grow and compress healthy bone tissue, but benign tumors do not spread, do not destroy bone tissue, and are rarely a threat to life… Read More

Yes, they can be, but only a gynecologist can determine whether it is actually a cyst rather than an ovarian tumor (benign or malignant). Either can be surgically removed.
