Belly button

noun

The belly button was once where the umbilical cord when the person was a newborn. It is the small “button” in the middle of the abdomen, also called the navel.

Benign

adjective

Benign, in medicine, means non-cancerous or self-limiting.

A benign tumor or cyst is not cancerous or malignant, and the opposite is malignant. Benign tumors do not invade nearby tissues and usually spread slowly. If large enough, however, they can cause other problems by pressing on blood vessels, organs or nerves. Common tumors which are benign are uterine fibroids and moles.

When referring to an illness, the term benign is used if the disease is nonprogressive or mild.
