Solid Tumors are an unusual group of tissue that typically do not have cysts or liquid areas. They may be malignant (cancer), or benign (not cancer). Solid tumors are named after the type of cells that form them. Some cases of solid tumors are carcinomas, sarcomas, and lymphomas. Leukemias (cancers of the blood) usually do not form solid tumors.
Options for treatment depend on the patient's type of cancer, stage of the disease, age, and other medical conditions. Treatment should be discussed with the patient's physician.
