Tumor

Definition of Tumor:

An abnormal growth of tissue resulting from uncontrolled, progressive multiplication of cells and serving no physiological function; a neoplasm.  Literally, a swelling; in the past the term has been used in reference to any swelling of the body, no matter what the cause.  However, the word is now being used almost exclusively to refer to a neoplastic mass, and the more general usage is being discarded.
