  2. 2. <ul><li>Study of neoplastic diseases: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>ONCOS = tumor LOGOS = study </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Neoplasm : </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Altered cell population characterized by an excessive, non-useful proliferation of cells that are unresponsive to normal control mechanisms and to organizing influences of adjacent tissue. </li></ul></ul>
  3. 3. Neoplasm: <ul><li>Malignant: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Cancer cells that exhibit uncontrolled proliferation and impair the function of normal organs by local tissue invasion and metastatic spread to distant anatomic sites. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Benign: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Composed of normal appearing cells that do not invade locally or metastasize to other sites </li></ul></ul>
