One of the cornerstones of this organization that I have been failing to understand for a while now is the claim that benign and malignant tumors are somehow just as dangerous. Having lived in a cancer ward for 2 years you come not notice a trend, people with benign tumors don't die of their illness. For a tumor, the ability to metastasize is what allows it to kill you in most cases. I am unable to identify a single way in which benign tumors are not better to have than malignant ones. If anyone can help me understand this I would greatly appreciate it.
