1

An abnormal mass of tissue the growth of which exceeds and is uncoordinated with that of the normal tissues and persists in the same excessive manner after the cessation of stimuli which evoked the change.

Neoplasm(TOPNOTCH)Robbins Basic Pathology, 8th Ed p.174

2

Benign or malignant?Localized

Benign(TOPNOTCH)Robbins Basic Pathology, 8th Ed p.174

3

Benign or malignant?Invades and destroys adjacent tissues.

Malignant(TOPNOTCH)Robbins Basic Pathology, 8th Ed p.174

4

What are the two basic components of tumors?

Parenchyma and Stroma(TOPNOTCH)

5

This component of tumors largely determines its biologic behavior.

Parenchyma(TOPNOTCH)Robbins Basic Pathology, 8th Ed p.174

6

This component of tumors determines the name of the growth.

Parenchyma(TOPNOTCH)Robbins Basic Pathology, 8th Ed p.174

7

This component of tumors is crucial to the growth of neoplasms since it carries the blood supply and provides support to the growth of cells.

Stroma(TOPNOTCH)Robbins Basic Pathology, 8th Ed p.174

13

Malignant neoplasms arising in mesenchymal tissue or its derivatives.

Sarcomas(TOPNOTCH)Robbins Basic Pathology, 8th Ed p.175

14

Benign tumor arising in fibrous tissue is called?

Fibroma(TOPNOTCH)Robbins Basic Pathology, 8th Ed p.175

15

A benign cartilagenous tumor is called?

Chondroma(TOPNOTCH)Robbins Basic Pathology, 8th Ed p.175

16

This is a benign epithelial neoplasm which produces glandular patterns or neoplasms derived from glands but not necessarily exhibit glandular patterns

Adenoma(TOPNOTCH)Robbins Basic Pathology, 8th Ed p.175

17

These are benign epithelial neoplasms, growing on any surface that produce microscopic or macroscopic finger-like fronds.

Papillomas(TOPNOTCH)Robbins Basic Pathology, 8th Ed p.174

18

A mass that projects above a mucosal surface to form a macroscopically visible structure.

Polyps(TOPNOTCH)Robbins Basic Pathology, 8th Ed p.175

19

A cancer of fibrous tissue origin.

Fibrosarcoma(TOPNOTCH)Robbins Basic Pathology, 8th Ed p.175

20

Malignant neoplasms of epithelial cell origin.

Carcinoma(TOPNOTCH)Robbins Basic Pathology, 8th Ed p.175

21

Carcinoma of squamous cell origin.

Squamous cell carcinoma(TOPNOTCH)Robbins Basic Pathology, 8th Ed p.176

22

Benign or malignant?Lymphoma

Malignant(TOPNOTCH)Robbins Basic Pathology, 8th Ed p.176

23

Benign or malignant?Seminoma

Malignant(TOPNOTCH)Robbins Basic Pathology, 8th Ed p.176

24

The extent to which neoplastic cells resemble their normal forebears morphologically and functionally.

Differentiation(TOPNOTCH)Robbins Basic Pathology, 8th Ed p.176

25

This is considered a hallmark of malignancy, which literally means "to form backward".

Anaplasia(TOPNOTCH)Robbins Basic Pathology, 8th Ed p.177

26

These cells display marked pleomorphism, nuclei are variable and bizzare in size and shape. Chromatin is course and clumped. Mitoses are often numerous and distinctly atypical.

Anaplastic cells(TOPNOTCH)Robbins Basic Pathology, 8th Ed p.177

27

This term is defined by disorderly but non-neoplastic proliferation of cells, described as a loss in uniformity of individual cells and in their architectural orientation.

Dysplasia(TOPNOTCH)Robbins Basic Pathology, 8th Ed p.178

28

Defined as dysplastic changes which involve the entire thickness of the epithelium.

Carcinoma -in- situ(TOPNOTCH)Robbins Basic Pathology, 8th Ed p.178

29

True or false?Dysplasia always progress to cancer.

False(TOPNOTCH)Robbins Basic Pathology, 8th Ed p.178

30

True or false?Lack of capsule in a neoplastic growth indicates malignancy.

FalseSome benign tumors are not encapsulated.(TOPNOTCH)Robbins Basic Pathology, 8th Ed p.179
