Origin: Anc Greek
αμαρτία/hamartia(=sin, quilt, crime, pity)
-ωμα/oma(=complete set of, or a condition.)
The Greek word "hamartia" is translated in medical terminology as a “failure” meaning a tumor formed from malformed rather than truly malignant cells.
Ahamartoma is a benign tumor consisting of a disorganized tissue mass of surrounding tissues. A hamartoma resembles to a neoplasm but it grows at the same rate as the normal cells of tissue. They are most often asymptomatic and undetected.
