Common "Benign Tumor" queries answered by top doctors | iCliniq

Benign Tumor

A benign tumor is a noncancerous growth that does not metastasize, meaning it does not spread to other parts of the body. Adenoma, lipoma, myoma, nevi, and fibroids are examples of benign tumors. Once excised, benign tumors usually do not grow back.
