The word tumor comes from the Latin language and means nothing more than swelling or swelling. That says nothing about its properties. It is simply the description for a firm (solid), locally circumscribed increase in the body's own, mature (differentiated em) or immature (primitive; undifferentiated em) tissue. This tissue can sometimes be as immature (embryonic) as the body tissue of an unborn child.
In medical terminology, a tumor is identified with the ending "-om", while the first, usually Latin, part of the word refers to the tissue that is causing the swelling. For example, "lipoma" means "swelling from adipose tissue"; an "osteoma" is a bone tumor.
Solid tumors can be benign or malignant.
Benign (benign) solid tumors are not cancer! They grow slowly and locally and they are usually isolated from the neighboring tissue. They do not form daughter tumors (metastases). Benign tumors can sometimes resolve on their own or stop growing; but they can also be precursors of malignant tumors.
Malignant solid tumors belong to the cancer diseases. A malignant tumor is referred to as the primary tumor where it occurs. Any settling of this tumor in other places in the body is known as metastasis n.
The type and properties of a solid tumor or cancer must be precisely determined (classified) in order to determine the treatment strategy. For this, specific examinations are necessary, depending on the type of disease.
