Similarly, it is asked, how do you measure the size of a tumor?
Size indicates how large across the tumor is at its widest point. Doctors measure cancer in millimeters (1 mm = .04 inch) or centimeters (1 cm = .4 inch). Size is used to help determine the stage of the breast cancer.

Is a tumor the same as a mass?
The word tumor simply refers to a mass. This is a general term that can refer to benign (generally harmless) or malignant (cancerous) growths. Benign tumors are non-malignant/non-cancerous tumor. A benign tumor is usually localized, and does not spread to other parts of the body.
