There are two major types of tumors: Malignant and Benign.
Malignant Tumors are called also known as cancer.
Benign Tumors on the other hand do not invade the bordering tissues, or create metastases, rather they may locally grow to a great size.
The older a person gets the more mutations they have accumulated amongst their DNA, which makes them more prone to tumors. With that in mind, age is a factor, and with increasing age, the likely hood of developing a tumor increases. Also known is that the older an individual who is affected with a tumor is, the higher the odds that the tumor will be malignant.

Tumors are causes by mutations that can occur in DNA of our bodies cells. A single mutation is not sufficient for a tumor to develop but rather an accumulation of multiple. The most common type of tumor that we hear about on a day to day basis is a “Brain Tumor”
