What type of tumor is more harmful- a benign or a malignant one and what is the difference?
A malignant tumor is cancerous and is likely to be more harmful than a benign tumor.
A malignant tumor is a cancerous tumor. A benign tumor is one that isn't harmful to the person that has the tumor.
The difference between a malignant tumor and a metastatic tumor is their growth. A malignant tumor, which is cancerous, may continue to grow in one place. A metastatic tumor will spread to other areas.
Benign is the opposite of malignant
A benign tumor is a non-cancerous tumor, whereas a malignant tumor is cancerous. Some benign tumors can become cancerous. That is the similarity.
Its a malignant tumor.
A benign tumor does not spread. If a tumor spreads, it is malignant.
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!
Leiomyoma is the benign tumor; leiomyosarcoma would be the malignant tumor.
A benign tumor. Malignant tumors metastasize.
Depending on if it is cancerous or not can be malignant or benign.
Fibrosarcoma is a malignant tumor of fibrous tissue. Fibroma is a benign tumor of fibrous tissue.
A muscle tumor is a myoma. Smooth muscle - benign = Leiomyoma, malignant = Leiomyosarcoma Skeletal muscle - benign = Rhabdomyoma, malignant = Rhabdomyosarcoma Myoma A tumor that originates from muscle tissue is called a myoma (bening) or myosarcoma (malignant). myocytoma
The word benign means good while malignant means badly born. A benign tumor is not very serious and made be removed if it is in the wrong place but otherwise it causes no harm. A malignant tumor must be removed as it may spread and cause great harm.
If it is not known whether a tumor is benign or malignant, it is sometimes referred to as as "mass".
A pituitary adenoma is a benign tumor of the pituitary.
Malignant is cancerous and spreads throughout the body. Benign is not cancerous and can be removed most of the time without a spread of disease
if it is malignant, it is, benign, no.
They take some tissue from the tumor itself an then test it.
No it is not. Myosarcoma is a malignant tumor derived from muscle tissue.
A malignant tumor is cancerous; a benign tumor is not. The farmer described the soil damage done by the drought as "malignant". Citizens wanted to rid their city of its malignant crime statistics.
Neoplasm is the medical term meaning tumor; a neoplasm can be malignant (cancerous) or benign.
The tumor was benign; it was not harmful for now.
Uterine fibroids, or uterine leiomyoma, are benign tumors or benign neoplasms. (Neoplasm and tumor are synonymous; neoplasms can be benign or malignant. Fibroids are benign.)
Tumors are of two types, benign or malignant. A benign tumor is not considered cancer. It is slow growing, does not spread or invade surrounding tissue, and once it is removed, doesn't usually recur. A malignant tumor, on the other hand.
The cancer had caused the cells to form a tumor; whether it was malignant or benign was unknown.
A tumor just refers to an abnormal growth of cells that form a swollen growth. A tumor is not necessarily cancer. It may be benign or malignant.
No. By definition, a benign tumor is incapable of spreading to other locations by metastasis. It may, however, spread to adjacent areas by directly spreading there. No. Only malignant tumors can metastasize.
Benign tumors are not cancerous. Malignant means it is made up of cancerous cells. A benign tumor is an abnormal growth that is not cancerous in nature and cannot spread. Many conditions can cause a lump or growth that is not cancer. Although a benign tumor has no cancerous cells, it can still present problems depending on location. For example, if it is located in the head, it can cause blockage of blood flow to… Read More
rhabdomyoma - benign neoplasm rabdomyosarcoma - malignant neoplasm
A benign tumor is a tumor that lacks all three of the malignant properties of a cancer. Thus, by definition, a benign tumor: # does not grow in an unlimited, aggressive manner # does not invade surrounding tissues # does not metastasize You can read more here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Benign_tumor
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… Read More
The word benign means that a disease or tumor is not harmful or not cancerous. The phrase less benign would mean that it is not cancer and not harmful so it does not need to further treatment.
Then the cell will form a tumor. These cancerous lumps can either be malignant or benign.
A tumor is an abnormal mass found in tissue. Tumors may be benign or malignant depending on the growth and cancer.
A neoplasm is an abnormal mass of tissue that results when cells divide more than they should or do not die when they should. A malignant neoplasm is cancerous, and may spread to other parts of the body. A benign neoplasm is not cancerous. It may cause problems locally, but does not spread. Benign means it is not long-lasting. If you are talking about neoplasms or cancers, Benign means the tumor cannot undergo metastasis, whereas… Read More
There is not a simple yes or no answer to this question. Some benign tumors may develop into malignant ("cancerous") tumors, but malignant cells that develop are benign cells that are taken over by cancer. Often the only way to diagnose a "benign" tumor as having become malignant is based on whether the tumor begins to invade other areas. A good example is the follicular adenoma of the thyroid. This is a benign encapsulated tumor… Read More
Wilms' tumor is a type of malignant tumor
Surgery can be performed to remove the tumor. If there are symptoms present as a result of the brain tumor and the tumor is benign, then it is possible that removing the tumor surgically will alleviate the symptoms. If the tumor is malignant, then it's a whole different situation and surgery may not solve the problem.
The difference between the two is that granulation tissue is tissue that forms in the process of wound healing while residual tumor is either a benign or malignant growth that is still present after some type of tumor removal surgery. It is sometimes difficult to differentiate between the two and MRIs are often used for this problem.
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.
ntah ak pun xtau tanyala pd yg pakar.....layannnnnn
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
Most malignant tumors of the heart are the result of a malignancy originating in another are of the body (primary tumor) that has spread to the heart. Cardiac Tumors that originate in the heart are RARE, but can be either benign or malignant.
A benign brain tumor is a non-cancerous tumor in the brain.
adenoma: A benign epithelial tumor having a glandular origin and structure.
Chondroma is a slow-growing non-cancerous tumor derived from cartilage cells. A chondrosarcoma is a malignant tumor composed of masses of cartilage.
A cyst is a hollow ball of cells with fluid inside. It's usually not a problem. A tumor is a growth of cells; it may be benign (it won't grow any more), or malignant ... it doesn't know how to stop. An excisional biopsy will let you know which.
71 year old man is diagnosed with a 7cm primary tumor in his colon which has spread to the liver what features indicates that the tumor is malignant?
The fact that the tumor is relatively large and that it has spread to another organ, are both bad signs. Most benign (i.e., not malignant) tumors are self contained, and by their nature, do not tend to spread rapidly.
A malignant tumor is cancer and if unchecked can spread to other organs and kill the person. A benign tumor can still kill, but it does not spread like cancer, whereas malignant tumors invade surrounding tissues and can also spread via someone's blood-stream or lympathetic system to form a secondary growth called a metastasis elsewhere in their body. There are many different types of benign tumors arising from different structures in the body and benign… Read More
benign means cancerous in most cases...ex. doctors will tell if a tumor is benign or not...if it is benign...it contains no cancer cells.....if it is not...then you get the idea..... Benign means non cancerous.
