If you are diagnosed with a benign breast cancer, will it go away on its own?

    Benign and breast cancer are conflicting statements I believe. Benighn lumps are not cancer..Breast cancer will not go away on its own.

    The term 'benign' refers to a non cancerous tumor. It is a lump or a tumor that has not yet developed into cancer or an inactive form of cancer. So you can't really have benign breast cancer. Has that been told to you officially from a doctor? If that's the case then that's not the right person to be seeing. UY.
