NEOPLASM

is a term which is normally used to describe a new, abnormal malignant tumour, as seen in cases of cancer. There is normally a lack of cellular structure and more a bundle of cells which are invasive and normally destroy or damage cells which are adjacent to the tumour.

NEOPLASM: "The development of a neoplasm in children or adults can become serious because they are essentially cancerous tumours, however they tend to be malignant."
