neoplasia new, abnormal growth, uncontrolled cells proliferation (multiplication, irreversible

what behavior do neoplasms exhibit? unlimited growth and unregulated growth
what are causes of neoplasia chemicals viruses (aka oncogenic viruses) radiation (sunlight, xrays, nuclear fission) (can occur spontaneously secondary to a genetic mutation
what are tumor classifications? benign and malignant
benign tumor (neoplasia) localized, encapsulated w/ fibrous CT, invade adjacent tissue, resemble normal ctissue tx. surgical excision, either local excision or enucleation
malignant tumor (cancerous) invades and destroys surrounding tiss., can spread, well differentiated-neoplasic cells resemble normal cells poorly diferentiated- do not undifferentiated/anaplastic-do not resemble tiss. derived from at all
pleomorphic cells of malignant tumors vary in size and shape
hyperchromatic nuclei of cells darkers than those of normal cells, exhibit an increased nuclear-cytoplasmic ratio
mitotic figures normal and abnormalmitotic figures seen in nucleus of neoplastic cells tx. surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy (often combo)
