Tumors are lumps of tissue. They form when cells divide and can appear in many different areas throughout the body. Tumors can be benign (not cancerous) and malignant (cancerous). Benign tumors can come back but generally do not spread from their original location. Malignant tumors may spread to other parts of the body.
