I recently noticed my tomoato plan dying and after a closer look I found some sort of growth on the stem.

Can someone please tell me what this is and what I can do to fix the problem?

Called adventitious roots. That is, roots on a stem where they don't normally grow.

Not a problem. Cover them up with soil so that they can help your plant.

If your plant is dying, look for a different reason.
