What is Benign Tumors?

Benign tumors are non-cancerous that have a fibrous capsule, limited potential for growth, a regular shape, cells that are well differentiated and do not invade surrounding tissue or metastasize to distant sites. Some kinds of benign tumors include adenoma, fibroma, hemangioma, and lipoma.
