Benign esophageal tumours are rare non-malignant lesions arising from the mucosal or muscular layers of the esophagus.

Leiomyoma is the most common benign tumour of the esophagus.

It has been described in 5% of autopsy specimens.

Benign tumours are classified as mucosal or intramural:

Mucosal tumours : (produce a filling defect in the lumen)- Example.-  Fibrovascular polyps ; Granular cell tumours ; Squamous papillomas and lipomas.

Visit:  Soft Tissue Pathology

Intramural lesions:  (more common than mucosal tumours ; produce an extrinsic mass projecting from the wall into the lumen.)  Eg.- Leiomyomas and cysts.
