Adenoma is a kind of benign or non-cancerous tumor (non-malignant). This is less detrimental compared to cancer but if neglected it may turn malignant. Adenoma usually originates in the glands of colon, breasts, lungs and throat.
Genetic inheritance and hormonal fluctuations may be responsible for the development of adenoma, but there is insufficient evidence to prove the same.
Adenoma can occur to anyone at any age. Its symptoms vary depending on the affected body parts and so is the diagnosis. Treatment approach mainly includes surgical removal of the tumorous growth.
