  • colonic neoplasm
  • A majority of histologically normal fields surrounding the neoplastic growths also show reduced MBD4 mRNA expression (a field defect) compared to histologically normal tissue from individuals who never had a colonic neoplasm. (wikipedia.org)
  • Metastasis
  • In univariate analysis, age of 62.5 years or older, carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) of at least 3.4 ng/ml, maximum standardized uptake value (SUVmax) of at least 8.0, hypertension, 18F-FDG uptake on the rectosigmoid, and PET-CT for metastasis work-up showed a significant association with advanced neoplasm. (ovid.com)
  • The signs and symptoms of colorectal cancer depend on the location of the tumor in the bowel, and whether it has spread elsewhere in the body (metastasis). (wikipedia.org)
  • metastatic
  • Phase I/II studies have shown highly selective targeting of radio-labeled mAbA33 in patients with metastatic colorectal cancer, opening up the possibility of A33-directed therapy. (readbyqxmd.com)
  • Secondary neoplasm refers to any of a class of cancerous tumor that is either a metastatic offshoot of a primary tumor, or an apparently unrelated tumor that increases in frequency following certain cancer treatments such as chemotherapy or radiotherapy. (wikipedia.org)
  • Rarely there can be a metastatic neoplasm with no known site of the primary cancer and this is classed as a cancer of unknown primary origin Neoplastic tumors are often heterogeneous and contain more than one type of cell, but their initiation and continued growth is usually dependent on a single population of neoplastic cells. (wikipedia.org)
  • tumor
  • Neoplasm is an abnormal growth of tissue which, if it forms a mass, is commonly referred to as a tumor. (wikipedia.org)
  • Current English, however, both medical and non-medical, uses tumor as a synonym for a neoplasm (a solid or fluid-filled cystic lesion that may or may not be formed by an abnormal growth of neoplastic cells) that appears enlarged in size. (wikipedia.org)
  • define
  • In noncolorectal, nonendocrine liver metastases, the role of surgery is less define than in colorectal or neuroendocrine cancer. (readbyqxmd.com)
  • It is tempting to define neoplasms as clonal cellular proliferations but the demonstration of clonality is not always possible. (wikipedia.org)
  • Study
  • Sumio Fujinuma and Yoshihiro Sakai, "Study of Superficial Type Colorectal Neoplasms With Central Depression," Diagnostic and Therapeutic Endoscopy , vol. 6, no. 4, pp. 169-177, 2000. (hindawi.com)
  • Of the 19 798 candidates, 180 patients with incidental colorectal 18F-FDG uptake were included in this study. (ovid.com)
  • Therefore, the aim of this study was to identify risk factors and develop a simple prediction model for advanced colorectal neoplasm in asymptomatic individuals aged 40-49 years. (biomedcentral.com)
  • treatment
  • However, a new name was proposed to this technique in 2003, as a treatment positioned between EMR and laparoscopic surgery, since this technique is innovative and enables complete resection of neoplasms that were impossible to resect en bloc by EMR. (wikipedia.org)
