Malignant
MALIGNANCY (from Latin male, meaning 'badly', and -gnus, meaning 'born') is the tendency of a medical condition to become progressively worse. Malignancy is most familiar as a characterization of cancer . A malignant tumor contrasts with a non-cancerous benign tumor in that a malignancy is not self-limited in its growth, is capable of invading into adjacent tissues, and may be capable of spreading to distant tissues. A benign tumor has none of those properties. Malignancy in cancers is characterized by anaplasia , invasiveness, and metastasis . Malignant tumors are also characterized by genome instability , so that cancers, as assessed by whole genome sequencing , frequently have between 10,000 and 100,000 mutations in their entire genomes. Cancers usually show tumour heterogeneity , containing multiple subclones

Ladder Match
A LADDER MATCH is a type of match in professional wrestling , most commonly one where an item (usually a title belt) is hung above the ring, and the winner is the contestant who climbs a ladder and retrieves the item. The ladder itself becomes a key feature of the match, as wrestlers will use the ladder as a weapon to strike the opponent(s), as a launching pad for acrobatic attacks, and frequently these matches include impressive falls from the top of the ladder. However, there were very few matches in which the hung item must be used in a special manner in order to win the match, such as striking the opponent with the item (see Bam Bam Bigelow
