Delta Medix Patient General Information


An adenoma is a benign tumor of glandular origin. Adenomas can grow and be found in many organs of the body including the thyroid, colon, adrenal glands, pituitary gland, etc. Although adenomas are benign, they may progress to become malignant over time, at which point are called adenocarcinomas (a general term for cancer that comes from glandular tissue).
