A neoplasm is a type of abnormal and excessive growth, called neoplasia, of tissue. The growth of a neoplasm is uncoordinated with that of the normal surrounding tissue, and persists in growing abnormally, even if the original trigger is removed. This abnormal growth usually forms a mass, when it may be called a tumor. ICD-10 classifies neoplasms into four main groups: benign neoplasms, in situ neoplasms, malignant neoplasms, and neoplasms of uncertain or unknown behavior. Malignant neoplasms are also simply known as cancers and are the focus of oncology. Prior to the abnormal growth of tissue, as neoplasia, cells often undergo an abnormal pattern of growth, such as metaplasia or dysplasia.
However, metaplasia or dysplasia does not always progress to neoplasia and can occur in other conditions as well. The word is from Ancient Greek νέος- neo ("new") and πλάσμα plasma ("formation", "creation") which we called Abnormal Growth.
A neoplasm is an abnormal growth of cells, also known as a tumor. Neoplastic diseases are conditions that cause tumor growth — both benign and malignant. Benign tumors are noncancerous growths. They usually grow slowly and can’t spread to other tissues. Malignant tumors are cancerous and can grow slowly or quickly. Malignant tumors carry the risk of metastasis, or spreading to multiple tissues and organs..
Symptoms of neoplastic disease greatly depend on where the neoplasm is located.
Regardless of type, there are some common symptoms of neoplastic disease are anemia, shortness of breath, abdominal pain, persistent fatigue, loss of appetite, chills, diarrhea, fever, bloody stools, lesions, skin masses In some cases, neoplastic diseases show no symptoms.

A cancerous neoplasm in your lymph tissues is referred to as lymphoma.Other symptoms of lymphoma includes are increased swelling in your neck, armpits, or groin weight loss, fever, fatigue, night sweats.
Neoplasms can also affect your skin and may result in skin cancer. Some of the more common symptoms associated with this form of cancer include such as lesions, open sores, itchy or painful rashes, bumps, a mole that may bleed.
To properly diagnose neoplastic disease, your doctor will first determine if the neoplasms are benign or malignant. Your doctors will conduct a thorough examination of your medical history, blood tests, and possibly a biopsy on visible masses. Other tests used to diagnose neoplastic diseases and cancers include:
If you notice any unusual growths, moles, or skin rashes, schedule a visit with your doctor. Don’t self-diagnose tumors. If you’ve been diagnosed with a benign neoplasm, your doctor may want to monitor your symptoms to detect any unusual activity. If it grows, you should contact your doctor.
