its also known as 'cell death', its when your body kills off and disposes of dead cells without harming the surrounding areas of your body.

APOPTOSIS is a form of cell death necessary to make way for new cells and to remove cells whose DNA has been damaged to the point at which cancerous change is liable to occur, all of these without destroying the surrounding cells.

apoptosis is otherwise known as programmed cell death.
it differs from necrosis in the way that the cells are i programmed to die because they become old(life span is over) or cancerous or have damaged DNA.
