most important feature of benign tumours
remains localized
The nonspecific immune response that occurs in reaction to any type of bodily injury

applies pressure, compresses
chronic inflammation is characterized by
macrophages, lymphocytes and proliferation of connective tissue fibroblasts

haemopoietic and lymphoid cells
palliative care
any form of medical care that concentrates on reducing the severity of the symptoms oppose to trying to cure the disease

invades and destroys it
two main groups of tumours
benign and malignant
symptoms of acute inflammation
fever, chills, fatigue, headaches, loss of appetite, muscle stiffness
signs of acute inflammation( and reasons)
redness+heat(increased blood flow), pain(local irritation and pressure on nerves), swelling(edema), loss of function(nutrient deficiency)
symptoms of chronic inflammation
lack of sleep, low adrenal functions. change of cells, damage and death to cells.
boundaries of malignant tumours
irregular, ill-defined and non-encapsulated
acute inflammation
a short and sudden response that is normally visual and is associated with neutrophils
