Thanks for your query.I would like to answer your query point to point.

1) Not every benign tumour undergo malignant changes if left untreated for a long time.The benign tumours of soft tissue are more prone to undergo malignant changes e.g Fibroma, chondromas,Neurofibroma etc.

2)The benign tumours and cyst are different entities,Benign tumours are usually solid in nature and do not contain fluid however cyst is a thin walled lump just like a balloon containing a fluid.which may be clear fluid, Blood ,or infected debris of a necrotic tissue.

3) Benign testicular tumours are very rare where as most of the testicular tumours are malignant in nature.

Hope I have answered your query.
