REPRODUCTIVE SYSTEM CANCERS

Reproductive System Cancers

 

 

Tumor

A tumor is a cell proliferation without the body’s need for it leading to an increase in cells or tissues that grow and persist on the account of the original cells and tissues without a useful goal. New tissues called tumors form, and tumors can be benign or malignant.

 

Benign tumors

 They are not cancers and do not spread to other parts of the body. These tumors can be removed and usually do not return. These tumors include moles or fibroids, which are more common in the female reproductive system.

 

Malignant tumors

They are cancers and can spread throughout the body and into the bloodstream. These cancerous cells are out of control and grow, spread, and invade other tissues. Therefore, it is important to detect it early while it is still in the initial stages to control the disease as much as possible.
