Neoplasms are masses of cells which proliferate without normal control and without any useful function. Neoplasms of paraneurons, like those of other categories of cells, are designated by the suffix “-oma” (adapted from the Greek word “onkoma,” meaning tumor). Thus, the term paraneuroma indicates neoplasms of the paraneurons.
