A tumor that grows locally but does not spread to other parts of the body. Benign tumors can cause problems because of their spread, as they press and displace normal tisues. They can be dangerous in confined places such as the skull.
tumors that spread only by expansion.
Not a cancer; grows slowly; does not spread to other parts of the body like a cancer can.
Noncancerous tissue growth that cannot spread from its location site to other areas of the body.
Benign tumors are not cancerous; however, they may need to be treated. Some benign tumors may change over time and become malignant.
A lump or mass that is not cancer.
Tumor that is non-cancerous. Generally do not spread to other organs or come back when they are removed.
Although the cells in a benign tumor are not normal, a benign tumor poses no immediate threat to the patient. However, in some cases a benign tumor may undergo further changes and may become a life-threatening aggressive tumor.
An abnormal mass of tissue that is not cancerous and will not invade nearby tissue or spread to other parts of the body.
a complex accumulation of normal tissue
a disorganized mass of cells, but they do not invade adjacent tissues
a harmless growth, which may or may not be operated on
a noncancerous growth that does not invade other tissues and generally has a favorable prognosis
a non-fatal tumor favorable for recovery and unlikely to recur
a type of tumor growth where the cell growth is localized in one area and can be easily removed
A tumor which is non-cancerous. These generally grow slowly and do not invade adjacent organs or spread (metastasize) beyond the ovaries.
An abnormal noncancerous growth that doesn’t spread to other places in the body.
An abnormal swelling or growth that is not a cancer.
A tumor which is not cancerous.
A noninvasive (self-limiting) growth that is not cancerous. It may or may not resolve itself.
A noninvasive, nonmalignant growth that may go away by itself or that may have to be removed.
A general category of tumors that does not invade surrounding tissue. Benign tumors are characterized by slow growth through expansion. Such tumors are not malignant or cancerous.
A non-cancerous tumor.
Benign tumors are not cancerous, ie do not spread to other areas of the body. However, their growth and enlargement can cause symptoms by compressing nearby tissue or structures such as nerves. Over time some benign tumors may become malignant.
A tumor that is noncancerous.
An abnormal growth that is not cancerous and does not spread to other parts of the body
a noncancerous tumor.
A tumor that is not cancerous
an abnormal growth that is not cancer and does not spread to other areas of the body.
A non-cancerous growth that does not spread.
A non-cancerous growth, visible as a mass of cells. Benign tumors do not invade other cells or spread to other parts of the body; however, they should be monitored regularly or removed.
an abnormal, non cancerous growth of tissue that does not spread to other parts of the body as a cancerous tumor can do.
(mild or kind) A tumor with limited growth. It does not invade surrounding normal tissue nor does it spread (metastasize) to other tissues.
An abnormal mass of tissue that replicates uncontrollably, but will not spread to other tissues.
A tissue mass which is not considered “cancer” , that is, it will not invade other tissues or spread to other areas of the body. Usually, this means an excellent prognosis for the patient.
A growth that is not cancer; it will not spread to other parts of the body.
A tumor that does not spread to a secondary localization, but may impair normal biological function through obstruction or may progress to malignancy later.
A noncancerous growth that does not spread to other parts of the body.
A tumor which is noncancerous.
