Maybe I could relate it in a simpler idea?
When a cell does not have the proper Energy Release of Energy from the proper Alkaline Minerals, then it will stop functioning!!!
Now if it stops functioning and there is not any proper Energy Release to cleanse this dead cell out of the body, then it sits in the body and starts to Rot and become a Putiried Waste pile, which by the way just so happens to support Undesirable other Decaying organisims, which just so happen to "grow" causing what some want to call a "Tumor" !!
So you may be correct in saying it is a Tumor of growth, but this growth is caused because of a lack of nutrition to the body so as to cleanse the dead cells out and replace the area of the body with New cells!!!
