The Difference Between Benign And Malignant Cancer?
Tonight …. r nI want to ask if there is a term malignant / benign cancer ??? r nI know that there is a tumor in cm which is a malignant / benign tumor.
Hello Widi, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
A tumor is a mass that appears due to excessive division of body cells or because these cells did not die when they should have died. This excessive division of cells can be benign or malignant. Tumors are called benign if these cells only divide in a certain number and then stop, there is no significant change in cell shape (when viewed under a microscope, the type of cell can still be recognized), do not activate the surrounding healthy tissue, do not have the ability to invade the circulatory system blood or lymphatic system, so it can't spread far to other organs. Meanwhile, a tumor is called malignant if the division occurs uncontrollably (it cannot stop at all), changes in the shape of these cells become abnormal, invasion of the surrounding healthy tissue occurs, it can invade the circulatory and lymphatic systems. Tumors can also be called neoplasms.
Cancer is another term used to describe malignant tumors. So cancer is definitely malignant. Cancer comes from the word cancer which means crab in Greek. This illustrates the ability of this malignant / cancerous tumor to stimulate surrounding healthy tissue such as crab legs.
So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
