Solid tumors are abnormal mass of tissues that do not comprise any cyst or liquid areas within them. These tumors are of two types, i.e. benign (non-cancerous) and malignant (cancerous). These tumors comprise lymphomas, carcinomas, sarcomas, and melanomas. Most of the solid tumors are treated using radiotherapy, chemotherapy, and/or surgery.
