    The term neoplasm refers to tumors that are masses or growths that arise from normal tissue. Can a growth occur at any time in life? Are all neoplasms life-threatening? Explain in your own words why or why not. The term neoplasm refers to an abnormal growth of tissue caused by the quick division of cells that have undergone some form of change. The body is made up of trillions of cells that grow, divide, and die in an orderly fashion. This process is a strongly controlled one that is controlled by the DNA equipment within the cell. When a person is growing up, the cells of the body rapidly divide, but once adulthood is reached, cells generally only divide to replace worn-out, dying cells or to repair injured cells. Neoplasia describes when these cells multiply in an abnormal manner that is not matched with the surrounding tissue. These rogue cells (neoplastic cells) cannot be controlled in the way that normal cells can because they do not die when they should and they divide more quickly and that could happen with anyone anytime during the life. As this extreme growth persists, a lump or tumor that has no purpose or function in the body is eventually formed. This is referred to as a neoplasm and it may be non-cancerous (benign), pre-cancerous (pre-malignant) or cancerous (malignant).…

    A brain tumor is a mass of tissue that is formed by an increase of abnormal cells (Web MD). When cells in your body die, they normally get replaced by new cells.

There are two types of brain tumors; the first is Malignant Brain Tumor, this forms within the brain and is common that the tumor will…

    • 3 Pages

    Cancer cells can break away from the primary tumor site and travel through blood and lymphatic vessels. This is how cancer cells spread, or metastasize, to another part of the body, such as the brain. These tumors can develop when a patient’s primary cancer, while still undetectable at its original site, sends out metastatic cells that travel to the brain and establish themselves there. Most cancer patients are actually at risk of having their tumor spread to multiple sites. …

    Glomus tumors are usually the benign tumor of glomus cells with immunocytochemical and structural features of smooth muscle cells [1]. The majority of cases of glomus tumor are benign but rarely they demonstrate malignant features both clinically and histologically (aka glomangiosarcoma) [2]. Glomangiosarcoma in extracutaneous sites is uncommon but few cases have been reported. Glomangiosarcoma of the heart is extremely rare due to rarity or near absence of glomus bodies in the myocardium. We…
