  • Metastasis
  • Metastasis to the forearm skeletal muscle from an adenocarcinoma of the colon: report of a case. (koreascience.or.kr)
  • Tumor size also affects the prognosis, in that dogs with tumors greater than five centimeters have a greater chance of lymph node metastasis . (wikipedia.org)
  • Metastasis for any malignant mammary tumor is usually to the regional lymph nodes and lungs . (wikipedia.org)
  • Symptoms such as abdominal or back pain or pressure, diarrhea, indigestion, or yellowing of the skin and whites of the eyes can arise from the effects of a larger PanNET tumor, either locally or at a metastasis. (wikipedia.org)
  • Pancreatic neuroendocrine tumor staging (AJCC) Stage T1 Stage T2 Stage T3 Stage T4 Involvement of nearby lymph nodes - Stage N1 Metastasis - stage M1 In general, treatment for PanNET encompasses the same array of options as other neuroendocrine tumors, as discussed in that main article. (wikipedia.org)
  • CEA is elevated more in tumors with lymph node and distant metastasis than in organ-confined tumors and, thus, varies directly with tumor stage. (wikipedia.org)
  • Histological
  • According to the most recent revision (2004) of the World Health Organization (WHO) histological classification system for lung tumors ("WHO2004"), currently the most widely recognized typing scheme for pulmonary neoplasia, MCACL is considered a distinctive variant of adenocarcinoma. (wikipedia.org)
  • ovarian
  • Tumors of this type are also called ovarian adenocarcinoma. (wikipedia.org)
  • This group of tumors accounts for 90% to 95% of all cases of ovarian cancer. (wikipedia.org)
  • Benign, borderline, and malignant types of serous tumors account for about 30% of all ovarian tumors. (wikipedia.org)
  • These ovarian tumors are usually multi-septated, cystic masses with thin walls. (wikipedia.org)
  • We examine the homologous regions in humans- the short arm of chromosome 6 for deletions in sporadic ovarian adenocarcinomas.In 91 informative sporadic tumors,34 losses their heterozygosity including some benign, low-malignant-potential and early stage tumors,suggesting that it is an early event in the development of ovarian adenocarcinoma. (wikipedia.org)
  • Patients with advanced disease who achieved a complete remission documented by peritoneoscopy or laparotomy (or both) have a median survival that will exceed three years.People with ovarian adenocarcinoma were treated with four drug combination- hexamethylmelamine, cyclophosphamide, methotrexate and 5-fluorouracil - with the oral alkylating agent, melphalan. (wikipedia.org)
  • Four drug combination helped in the increased overall rate in the treatment but was more toxigenic than melphalan.The four-drug regimen is more effective than melphalan in the management of advanced ovarian adenocarcinoma. (wikipedia.org)
  • squamous
  • The tumor may expand into the overlying squamous surface epithelium, but it usually does not arise from the surface epithelium. (wikipedia.org)
  • Liver
  • Four (0.36%) of the malignant group were identified as metastatic cancer with the primary cancer source from lung, liver and tonsil and the most common site was upper extremities. (koreascience.or.kr)
  • It is also known as a hepatoid tumor because of the similarity in cell shape to hepatocytes (liver cells). (wikipedia.org)
  • Small tumors are generally benign, especially when cell division rate is slow, but large tumors disseminate to the liver, omentum and peritoneal cavity. (wikipedia.org)
  • The most common physical indications of cholangiocarcinoma are abnormal liver function tests, jaundice (yellowing of the eyes and skin occurring when bile ducts are blocked by tumor), abdominal pain (30%-50%), generalized itching (66%), weight loss (30%-50%), fever (up to 20%), and changes in the color of stool or urine. (wikipedia.org)
  • clinical
  • In this article, we review the clinical pathology of the tumor and current results of therapy. (cancernetwork.com)
  • However, the serum levels are raised in some types of cancer, which means that it can be used as a tumor marker in clinical tests. (wikipedia.org)
  • pancreatic
  • We collected preoperative serum from 50 patients with resectable pancreatic adenocarcinoma, as well as sera from 50 patients with chronic pancreatitis and 50 age/sex-matched healthy controls from our institution. (aacrjournals.org)
  • Pancreatic adenocarcinoma is the fourth leading cause of cancer death and has the lowest survival rate for any solid cancer ( 1 , 2 ). (aacrjournals.org)
  • PanNETs are quite distinct from the usual form of pancreatic cancer, the majority of which are adenocarcinomas, which arises in the exocrine pancreas. (wikipedia.org)
  • The NCCN recommends use of the same AJCC-UICC staging system as pancreatic adenocarcinoma. (wikipedia.org)
  • occurs
  • This occurs if the tumor causes hormonal changes that result in an increase or relative increase in blood estrogen levels. (petplace.com)
  • [ 3 ] Mesothelioma is a malignant pleural or peritoneal tumor that rarely occurs in patients who have not been exposed to asbestos. (medscape.com)
  • when cryptorchidism occurs in conjunction with a tumor then the tumor tends to be large. (wikipedia.org)
  • invasive
  • Most previous studies have focused on evaluating circulating IGFBP-3, and almost none have systematically investigated the level of this important protein in breast tissues from patients with invasive cancer and benign breast diseases (BBDs). (biomedcentral.com)
  • Dogs with noninvasive adenocarcinomas have an average survival time of two years, while dogs with invasive adenocarcinomas have an average survival time of one year. (wikipedia.org)
  • 10-year survival rates for borderline tumors contained within the ovary, malignant tumors without invasion, and invasive malignant tumors are greater than 95%, 90%, and 66%, respectively. (wikipedia.org)
