A benign tumour is a non-cancerous growth that does not spread (metastasize) to other parts of the body and is not usually life-threatening. Many researchers believe that most of the following types of kidney tumours are benign. However, others feel that some of these tumours have the potential to develop into renal cell carcinoma. There are no diagnostic tests that can confirm if a benign tumour has the potential to become cancerous. Benign tumours are sometimes found along with renal cell carcinoma when a removed kidney is examined by a pathologist. For these reasons, benign kidney tumours are treated like malignant tumours. In this case we have observed a male cadaver with a large tumour in the left kidney during our routine dissections of undergraduates.
