Diagnosis is based upon findings from medical history and physical examination. Further evaluation may include imaging tests and a biopsy.


There is no need to treat benign tumors that do not cause symptoms, and usually these tumors are being monitored and followed. Tumors that cause symptoms are surgically removed.
