Characteristics of benign and malignant neoplasms

  1. 1. I amCARELESS
  2. 2.  is an abnormal growth of tissue. Also known as a tumor (meaning "new formation") I am CARELESS
  3. 3.  Benign: A slow-growing, self-contained tumor that is not seriously harmful. Malignant: A usually fast-growing, often fatal tumor that invades surrounding tissue and sheds cells that spread throughout the body, creating new tumors. I am CARELESS
  4. 4. I amCARELESS
  5. 5. I amCARELESS
  6. 6.  Benign  Malignant Well-differentiated  Cells are cells that resemble undifferentiated and normal cells of the often bear little tissue from which the resemblance to the tumor originated normal cells of the tissue from which they arose I am CARELESS
  7. 7.  Benign  Malignant Tumor grows by  Grows at the expansion and does periphery and sends not infiltrate the out processes that surrounding tissues; infiltrate and destroy usually the surrounding encapsulated tissues I am CARELESS
  8. 8.  Benign  Malignant Rate of growth is  Rate of growth is usually slow variable and depends on level of differentiation; the more anaplastic the tumor, the faster its growth I am CARELESS
  9. 9.  Benign  Malignant Does not spread by  Gains access to the metastasis blood and lymphatic channels and metastasizes to other areas of the body I am CARELESS
  10. 10.  Benign  Malignant Is usually a localized  Often causes phenomenon that generalized effects, does not cause such as anemia, generalized effects weakness, and unless its location weight loss interferes with vital functions I am CARELESS
  11. 11.  Benign  Malignant Does not usually  Often causes cause tissue extensive tissue damage unless its damage as the location interferes tumor outgrows its with blood flow blood supply or encroaches on blood flow to the area; may also I am produce substances CARELESS that cause cell damage
  12. 12.  Benign  Malignant Does not usually  Usually causes death cause death unless unless growth can its location interferes be controlled with vital functions I am CARELESS
  13. 13.  Benign tumors cause more than 13,000 annual deaths in the USA, which can be compared to more than 500,000 annual deaths from cancer (malignant tumors). I am CARELESS
  14. 14. Really...CARELESS
