The term neoplasm refers to an abnormal growth of tissue caused by the rapid division of cells that have undergone some sort of mutation. The body is formed from trillions of cells that grow, divide, and die in an orderly fashion. This process may be a tightly regulated one that's controlled by the DNA machinery within the cell. When an individual is growing up, the cells of the body rapidly divide, but once adulthood is reached, cells generally only divide to exchange worn-out, dying cells or to repair injured cells. The classification of neoplasms is not simple, it is occasionally redundant, and has essentially been devised for mammals. There are, however, some important basic principles that apply to most animals and will be confine mind. It is the case of the suffices “-oma” and “-carcinoma” that often (but not always) refer to benign and malignant tumors, respectively. To properly diagnose neoplastic disease, your doctor will first determine if the neoplasms are benign or malignant. Your doctors will conduct a radical examination of your medical record , blood tests, and possibly a biopsy on visible masses.
