  • Biopsy
  • A small amount of tissue may also be removed (biopsy) and examined by a pathologist to check for signs of disease. (cancer.org.au)
  • An excision biopsy removes the entire abnormal area, often with some of the surrounding normal tissue. (cancer.org)
  • By staining the cells from a biopsy, a pathologist can determine whether the tumor is an adenocarcinoma or some other type of cancer. (wikipedia.org)
  • The diagnosis is confirmed by tissue biopsy. (wikipedia.org)
  • Anal sac adenocarcinomas are often suspected due to location (palpable masse in anal sac) and behavior, but a biopsy and histopathology is necessary for a definitive diagnosis. (wikipedia.org)
  • Most often, a urologist or radiologist will remove a cylindrical sample (biopsy) of prostate tissue through the rectum, using hollow needles, and biomedical scientists in a histology laboratory prepare microscope slides for H&E staining and immunohistochemistry for diagnosis by a pathologist. (wikipedia.org)
  • Pancreatic cancer is usually diagnosed by a combination of medical imaging techniques such as ultrasound or computed tomography, blood tests, and examination of tissue samples (biopsy). (wikipedia.org)
  • In the case of endometrial hyperplasia usually a Pap smear is done, also a biopsy during the pelvic examination, may be done of the individuals endometrial tissue. (wikipedia.org)
  • The diagnosis is based on tissue examination, e.g. biopsy. (wikipedia.org)
  • uterine
  • Uterine cancer, also known as womb cancer, is any type of cancer that emerges from the tissue of the uterus. (wikipedia.org)
  • When the cancer has extended beyond the uterine tissue, more advanced treatments including combinations of chemotherapy, radiation therapy, or surgery may be required. (wikipedia.org)
  • structures
  • This may include the production of one or more forms of cytokeratin or other intermediate filaments, intercellular bridge structures, keratin pearls, and/or tissue architectural motifs such as stratification or pseudo-stratification. (wikipedia.org)
  • gland
  • Apocrine gland anal sac adenocarcinomas first appear as small lumps associated with one of the anal sacs (rarely bilateral), but they can grow to a large size. (wikipedia.org)
  • Dogs with perianal gland adenocarcinomas should be treated with aggressive surgery and the radiation therapy and chemotherapy if necessary. (wikipedia.org)
  • uterus
  • a form of cancer that develops in tissues covering the lining organs of the body, such as the skin, the uterus, the lung, or the breast. (hoacny.com)
  • vagina
  • Most cases of adenocarcinoma of the vagina used to be associated with exposure to diethylstilbestrol (DES) in embryonic life. (womenscancercenter.com)
  • In the latter case, the process of shedding involves the breaking down of the lining, the tearing of small connective blood vessels, and the loss of the tissue and blood that had constituted it through the vagina. (wikipedia.org)
  • Esophageal
  • Esophageal cancer is a malignancy that develops in tissues of the hollow, muscular canal (esophagus) along which food and liquid travel from the throat to the stomach. (encyclopedia.com)
  • Esophageal webs, which are protrusions of tissue into the esophagus, and diverticula, which are outpouchings of the wall of the esophagus, are associated with a higher incidence of esophageal cancer. (encyclopedia.com)
  • Hyperplasia
  • Hyperplasia (from ancient Greek ὑπέρ huper, "over" + πλάσις plasis, "formation"), or hypergenesis, is an increase in the amount of organic tissue that results from cell proliferation. (wikipedia.org)
  • biopsy
  • However, blocking more than two biopsy specimens together increases the loss of tissue at sectioning. (humpath.com)
  • Anal sac adenocarcinomas are often suspected due to location (palpable masse in anal sac) and behavior, but a biopsy and histopathology is necessary for a definitive diagnosis. (wikipedia.org)
  • The diagnosis is based on tissue examination, e.g. biopsy. (wikipedia.org)
  • Most often, a urologist or radiologist will remove a cylindrical sample (biopsy) of prostate tissue through the rectum, using hollow needles, and biomedical scientists in a histology laboratory prepare microscope slides for H&E staining and immunohistochemistry for diagnosis by a pathologist.

  • Pancreatic cancer is usually diagnosed by a combination of medical imaging techniques such as ultrasound or computed tomography, blood tests, and examination of tissue samples (biopsy). (wikipedia.org)
  • The diagnosis is confirmed by tissue biopsy. (wikipedia.org)
  • heterogeneous
  • In this work, the authors develop a simulation tool to help predict these different experimental responses using 3D heterogeneous tissue models based on the subject CT images. (stanford.edu)
  • The authors then validate and compare the predicted skull efficiencies to an experimental metric based on the subject thermal responses during tcMRgFUS treatments in a dataset of seventeen human subjects.Seventeen human head CT scans were used to create tissue acoustic models, simulating the effects of reflection, absorption, and scattering of the acoustic beam as it propagates through a heterogeneous skull. (stanford.edu)
  • clear cell adenocarc
  • Clear cell adenocarcinoma occurs in a small percentage of women (termed "DES-Daughters") born between 1938 and 1973 (later outside the United States) that were exposed to the drug diethylstilbestrol (DES) in utero. (wikipedia.org)
  • Approximately one in 1,000 (0.1%) DES Daughters will be diagnosed with clear cell adenocarcinoma. (wikipedia.org)
  • Signet ring and clear cell adenocarcinoma are no longer histological subtypes, but rather cytological features that can occur in tumour cells of multiple histological subtypes, most often solid adenocarcinoma. (wikipedia.org)
  • situ
  • A diagnosis of in situ behavior must be based on microscopic examination of tissue. (in.gov)
  • Engineering efforts are centered around finding the in situ pressure and tissue strain from the radiation force displacement measured on MRI. (stanford.edu)
  • Adipose
  • Adipose tissue senescence and inflammation in aging is reversed by the young milieu. (abcam.com)
  • In obesity, the excess of adipose tissue increases conversion of androstenedione into estrone, an estrogen. (wikipedia.org)
  • Prostate
  • These Gleason patterns are associated with the following features: Pattern 1 - The cancerous prostate closely resembles normal prostate tissue. (wikipedia.org)
  • peripheral
  • The peripheral location of adenocarcinoma in the lungs may be due to the use of filters in cigarettes which prevent the larger particles from entering the lung. (wikipedia.org)
  • clarification needed] Deeper inhalation of cigarette smoke results in peripheral lesions that are often the case in adenocarcinomas of the lung. (wikipedia.org)
  • tumour
  • Tumour infiltrating lymphocyte (TIL) subsets and tumour infiltrating macrophages (TIM) were investigated in 52 cases using tissue microarrays. (biomedcentral.com)
  • normal
  • it may be associated with higher morbidity and mortality secondary to the difficulty in obtaining a patent and long-lasting anastomosis between normal and hyperplastic tissue. (wikipedia.org)
  • They grow at the normal rate of the host tissue and rarely cause problems such as compression. (wikipedia.org)
