I learned a new word today: excrescence. And it suits my fancy.

ex·cres·cence
ikˈskresəns
noun
1.
a distinct outgrowth on a human or animal body or on a plant, esp. one that is the result of disease or abnormality.

Now I can use this word whenever I talk about oak galls, and also my favorite freak medical conditions: fetus in fetu, abnormal conjoined twins, or parasitic twins.
