What is the difference between Malignant cancer and benign cancer?

By definition CANCER is MALIGNANT - benign is NOT cancer, it is just a growth (tumor).There are three main characteristics typical of malignant (cancer) and benign (non-cancerous), for example:Malignant cancers are usually fast growing (as opposed to benign cancers which are usually slow growing);Malignant cancers invade the tissue, in fact the name cancer means "crab", because it invades the surrounding tissue and looks like a crab (benign cancers are usually encapsulated, therefore, do not invade the surrounding tissue);Malignant cancer cells are undifferentiated, which means that they regress back to simple cells and loose their main functions (benign cancer cells are usually well differentiated).There are exceptions. For example, kidney cancer may look benign because it's usually encapsulated, but it is actually malignant.
