I am not a native speaker, who studies English as a foreign language.

I need help from the natives.

We can prevent growth gone wrong within us.

(?) why not 'going' in here??

Reading certain texts, I find that sentence, which seems grammatically wrong, I think.

Why and how is 'GONE' used after growth?

I mean, is it grammatically correct and no problem to write 'growth gone wrong'?

'Something goes wrong', not 'Something is gone wrong', is the normally used form, as I know.

If so, is it correct to write 'Something going wrong', not 'Something gone wrong'??

I've googled 'gone wrong' and found that 'gone wrong' form is used in many texts.

But I am just curious about whether wrting 'sth gone wrong' is GRAMMATICALLY allowed or not.

Hi,

"One of the most common precursors of cancer is a traumatic loss or a feeling of emptiness
in one's life. When a salamander loses a limb, it grows a new one. In an analogous way,
when a human being suffers an emotional loss that is not properly dealt with, the body often
responds by developing a new growth. It appears that if we can react to loss with personal growth,
we can prevent growth gone wrong within us."

Let me try again. I am referring to Michael Swan's Practical English Usage, specifically the sections on the position of adjectives.

When a participle is used as an adjective, it can sometimes come before and sometimes after the noun, with different shades of meaning.

eg Tom saw a broken window. Here, 'broken' describes the appearance of the window.

eg The window broken yesterday was Tom's. Here, 'broken' refers more to the action of breaking, in other words it functions more like a verb describing the action of breaking.

Your context is a bit harder to grasp than the simple idea of 'a window broken', but 'growth gone wrong' seems to me to be similar.
