Both cancerous and benign tumors consist of cells that are dividing at an uncontrolled rate - right? Then how can you tell if it's cancerous or not? I understand that it is considered cancerous if it metasticizes, but how can a doctor tell if it is going to metastasize? Is there some- thing different about the cells of benign tumors that a doctor can see that they won't metastasize? This has been bugging me for ages!
