What is Tumor
Tumor is an abnormal growth of body tissues. Tumor appears as a result of cell division imbalance. Some believe that it’s a classic sign of inflammation and has a relation with impairment of body’s immune system.
There are dozens of different types of tumor. Their names usually reflect the kind of tissue they arise in, and may also tell you something about their shape or how they grow.
Tumor is a solid mass, different from cyst (liquid content). Tumor can be benign or malignant (cancerous). Benign tumor means that it does not spread to other parts of the body or destroy nearby tissue. Benign tumor usually grows slowly and in most cases, is not harmful.

A benign tumor, however, can grow large enough to compress nearby tissues, nerves or organ. If the location or size of a tumor is causing harm to surrounding tissues, doctor might use normal surgical procedures to removal this tumor. A variety of procedures, such as nuclear medicine, hormone therapy and chemotherapy, may also be used to treat benign tumor. Once removed, it rarely recurs. If a tumor does not endanger patient’s health, then it may be left untreated.
Fibroadenomas are benign tumor that grow in the breast. These tumors feel firm, round, smooth, rubbery, and are movable. They seem to be influenced by estrogen as they appear most often in premenopausal or pregnant women, or in women who are postmenopausal and taking HRT (hormone replacement therapy). Their peak incidence is in women 30 to 35 years old.
An ultrasound exam can help distinguish a fibroadenoma from other breast lumps. Most fibroadenomas are left in situ and monitored by a doctor. Some are treated by surgical excision.

Fibroids are benign tumors that are composed of fibrous or connective tissue. They can be classified as: hard fibroids, soft fibroids and other types of fibroids. Keloid is one form of hard fibroids. Soft fibroids mostly appear at the neck, armpits or groin.
Uterine fibroids (or myomas) are benign tumor which develop in the wall of uterus. No one knows what causes these fibroids, but their growth seems to depend on estrogen. Uterine fibroids are extremely common in woman. They don’t develop until after puberty, and usually after age 30. They shrink or disappear after menopause, when estrogen levels fall.
In most cases, they are usually small in size and cause no symptoms. Some fibroids, however, can grow very large in size and cause symptoms such as :
• Prolonged menstrual periods (7 days or longer)
• Heavy bleeding during periods
• Bloating or fullness in the belly or pelvis
• Pain in the lower belly or pelvis

Depend on the symptoms, size and location, large fibroids are usually treated by surgery (myomectomy or hysterectomy). Alternative non-surgery treatment, includes: oral contraceptives, lupron (hormone), IUD with levonorgestrel, or iron tablets.
However, fibroids never really disappear. It is therefore important for a woman with fibroids to maintain a healthy diet and lead a stress-free life.
