When can a tumor be non-cellular or non-neoplastic? And how can some neoplasms be cell free?


So basically, I've got a bio midterm tomorrow, and so in the process of studying, I realized I completely don't get that! Even my bio friends are like, what....? So if ANYONE can help us out here, that would be fantastic! Thanks!

The word tumor is defined (in Answers.com) as "An abnormal growth of tissue resulting from uncontrolled, progressive multiplication of cells and serving no physiological function; a neoplasm." So your teacher is playing with semantics here.

The only way a "mass" could be non-cellular would be if it were cystic - - a contained area of fluid. We see this with some ovarian tumors which may be benign or malignant. The benign ones are ovarian serous cystadenomas or mucinous cystadenomas which can be quite large tumor masses. These do contain cells however in the membranous sacs surrounding the fluid

What processes occur in the body during a period of critical stress?


Can someone who knows this stuff please inform me on the processes that occur in the body during a period of severe stress. I have heard things like stress makes you gain weight, stress makes you lose muscle mass, stress causes increased blood sugar levels, stress causes the breakdown of protein in the body and increased fat storage. However, I am not exactly sure how many of these are true and am interested in finding out the real facts behind stress.

Stress is the body's reaction to any change that requires an adjustment or response. The body reacts to these changes with physical, mental, and emotional responses.

Stress is a normal part of life. Many events that happen to you and around you,and many things that you do yourself,put stress on your body. You can experience stress from your environment, your body, and your thoughts.

How does stress affect health?

The human body is designed to experience stress and react to it. Stress can be positive, keeping us alert and ready to avoid danger. Stress becomes negative when a person faces continuous challenges without relief or relaxation between challenges. As a result, the person becomes overworked, and stress-related tension builds.

Stress that continues without relief can lead to a condition called distress,a negative stress reaction. Distress can lead to physical symptoms including headaches, upset stomach, elevated blood pressure, chest pain, and problems sleeping. Research suggests that stress also can bring on or worsen certain symptoms or diseases.

Stress also becomes harmful when people use alcohol, tobacco, or drugs to try to relieve their stress. Unfortunately, instead of relieving the stress and returning the body to a relaxed state, these substances tend to keep the body in a stressed state and cause more problems.  (+ info)

Estheticians or those who know about facials:Giving myself a facial.What order should I apply these processes?


Steam
Deep Cleansing Oil
Facial Scrub
Facial Cleanser
Enzyme Facial Mask
Facial Toner
Moisturizer

I'm guessing that this is the general order but if not, please or amend any way you like.
Should I steam face while the enzyme mask is on?
Should steam be added at any other process?
Any other tips or specifics on doing these processes?

Would like any useful info. Thanks.
----------

1. cleansing oil( presumabely the oil is first to remove all makeup) and then facial cleanser
2.facial toner
3. steam skin With facial scrub on and work scrub with pads of finger into skin
4.apply mask leave on according to time amount on product info
5. moisturizer


added note... you can steam with the mask on but it will completely slow down the enzyme acitivity due to the humidity and moisture content contrary to what some say about enzyme masks
... Personally, i would apply a sunscreen after the moisturizer for added protection  (+ info)
