A benign tumour from a glandular origin.

An abnormal growth of glandular epithelial tissue.

A benign neoplasm in which cells are derived from glandular epithelium.

A tumor that resembles a gland in its cellular structure.

A benign tumor formed from cells lining the inside of a surface or organ.

Tumor of a gland or cancerous growth in glandular epithelial tissue.

General term for a kind of tumor that arises from a gland, usually benign but capable of causing various diseases by triggering overproduction of certain hormones.

Benign epithelial tumor in which the cells are derived from glandular tissue or have a glandular structure. An adenoma may cause the affected gland to become overactive.

A benign (not cancerous) tumor of a glandular structure. Adenomas affect many organs such as the pituitary gland, the adrenal glands, and the thyroid glands.

A growth or cyst arising from the epithelium, a lining layer of cells on the inside of organs. Although usually benign, adenomas can, as they enlarge, press on adjacent tissue such as nerves or, in the case of an adenoma of the pituitary gland, on brain tissue, causing symptoms. Where adenomas arise in endocrine glands, such as the adrenals, pancreas, pituitary and thyroid, they can provoke excessive production of the hormone normally produced by the gland. If an adenoma is causing or is likely to cause symptoms it is usually surgically removed.

A benign tumor made of epithelial cells, usually arranged like a gland.

A specific form of noncancerous (benign) tumor characterized by the excessive proliferation of cells typically found within glandular tissues.

A benign growth or cyst that bears resemblance to glandular tissue and originates from the epithelium, which is the cellular layer lining organs.

The presence of adenomas in endocrine glands, including the pituitary gland, thyroid gland, adrenal glands, and pancreas, can give rise to an overproduction of hormones, leading to various diseases. For instance, an adenoma affecting the pituitary gland can result in conditions such as acromegaly or Cushing’s syndrome.

A non-cancerous enlarged gland that primarily causes concern due to its size and the anxiety it creates in the patient. An adenoma in the thyroid gland can be problematic as it might stimulate the thyroid to become overly active, leading to conditions like hyperthyroidism or Graves’ disease.

An unusual proliferation of glandular epithelial tissue.
