Neoplasm - Abnormal growth of new tissue. Also called a tumor. A neoplasm results when cells divide more than they should, or do not self-destruct when they should. A neoplasm can be either benign (noncancerous) or malignant (cancerous). Finding a neoplasm, or tumor, in the body could indicate the potential presence of cancer.
