can a cyst type of lump mean tumor or just a regular cyst?


 Hi. You have to aknowledge that cyst and tumor are two different entities. Cyst are basicaly bags that can be filled with air, water, fluids and can form in any part of the body. Me personaly have two cysts inside my brain, but they give me no problems. Most cysts are bening which means that they are not cancerous but you should note that all malignant tumors can create cysts.

Tumors on the other hand is a abnormall mass of tissue. To make sure if cyst or tumor is bening or malignant you have to do a biopsy which is basicaly taking a small piece of tumor or cyst and studying it under a microscope. I hope this helps
