Cancer by definition is malignant. A tumour can be malignant or benign.

All skin cancers are malignant - that is what a cancer is, a malignant growth. There is no such thing as a "benign malignancy".

If you mean, "What is the worst : malignant or benign cancer?" the answer is Malignant. If a person has a tumor for instance, in the benign state it is virtually harmless, it means that the tumor would not be cancerous, but, when a tumor is malignant that means cancer has developed and is spreading to other parts/cells in the body.Hope that helps!

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.

No, benign means a non-cancerous growth. Malignant, means cancerous.

There is no way for an individual to tell the difference between a benign and malignant cancer. A biopsy will have to be taken by a doctor and then sent off to the lab to determine what it is and if it is cancerous.

Benign is always better to have if one is to chose a cancer. Benign cancers are not all that problematic because they do not have the ability to metastasize

if it is malignant, it is, benign, no.

No, cancer can be malignant or benign. If a doctor had just told you that you had cancer, it is likely he or she will need to do further tests to see what kind of cancer it is exactly.

It can be is fatty tissue...benign or malignant.

Benign is the opposite of malignant

That's correct; a neoplasm or tumor can be benign or malignant.

The cancer had caused the cells to form a tumor; whether it was malignant or benign was unknown.

benign means cancerous cell which cannot expand & malignant means cancerous cell which get expand. malignant is dangerous than benign.

If you are talking about cancer, essentially yes. Malignant means the cells are spreading to other parts of the body. (Bad.) While benign means it is contained in one area. (Less bad.)

Benign brain tumors sometimes become malignant

No, a neoplasm can be benign or malignant.

No. A benign tumour is any abnormal tissue mass that is not a cancer. They lack all three of the malignant properties of a cancer, i.e., they don't grow aggressively, they don't invade surrounding tissue and they do not metastasize.

Cervical cancer is the malignant condition that is most commonly considered in pap smears. A pap can also be used to screen for vaginal or endometrial cancer.

Cancer is a disease that causes unusual cell growth in a part of the body. These growths are called tumors. The tumors may be benign (not cancer) or malignant (cancerous). Stomach cancer would be diagnosed if the abnormal malignant cell growth is happening on or in the stomach.

Neoplasia is an abnormal growth of cells. Neoplasia can be benign, where it does not invade other organs or tissues, or it can be malignant, where is can invade other organs or tissues. Cancer, is a malignant neoplasia. Therefore Cancer is a form of neoplasia, but neoplasia is not always Cancer.

The antonym for the word malignant is benign.

The opposite of malignant is 'benign'.

They may be either benign or malignant

A tumor is an abnormal mass found in tissue. Tumors may be benign or malignant depending on the growth and cancer.
