  • tumors
  • The lungs, liver, brain, and bones are the most common metastasis locations from solid tumors. (wikipedia.org)
  • In addition, because cancer is a heterogeneous genetic disease, and excisional biopsies provide only a snapshot in time of some of the rapid, dynamic genetic changes occurring in tumors, liquid biopsies provide some advantages over tissue biopsy-based genomic testing. (wikipedia.org)
  • Multiphasic tumors such as these are classified into a fifth "subtype", termed adenocarcinoma with mixed subtypes. (wikipedia.org)
  • On relatively rare occasions, malignant lung tumors are found to contain components of both SCLC and NSCLC. (wikipedia.org)
  • In these cases, the tumors should be classified as combined small cell lung carcinoma (c-SCLC), and are (usually) treated like "pure" SCLC. (wikipedia.org)
  • The tests examine the genetics of tumors removed for biopsy for mutations that make them susceptible to treatment. (wikipedia.org)
  • Adenocarcinomas are most often highly heterogeneous peripheral tumors, and are thought to arise from malignant transformation of primitive cells that can exhibit differentiation characteristics of Clara Cells, Type II pneumocytes, bronchiolar surface cells, bronchial gland cells, or goblet cells. (wikipedia.org)
  • Although it is common in the lung cancer literature to refer to histologically mixed tumors containing significant numbers of malignant giant cells as "giant-cell carcinomas", technically a diagnosis of "giant-cell carcinoma" should be limited strictly to neoplasms containing only malignant giant cells (i.e. "pure" giant-cell carcinoma). (wikipedia.org)
  • About 1% of lung cancers are sarcomas, germ cell tumors, and hematopoietic tumors, while 99% of lung cancers are carcinoma. (wikipedia.org)
  • Malignant mammary tumors are divided into sarcomas, carcinosarcomas, inflammatory carcinomas (usually anaplastic carcinomas), and carcinomas (including adenocarcinomas), which are the most common. (wikipedia.org)
  • Tumors in the top of the lung, known as Pancoast tumors, may invade the local part of the sympathetic nervous system, leading to Horner's syndrome (dropping of the eyelid and a small pupil on that side), as well as damage to the brachial plexus. (wikipedia.org)
  • The WHO-2004 scheme groups lung carcinomas into 8 major types: Squamous cell carcinoma Small cell carcinoma Adenocarcinoma Large cell carcinoma Adenosquamous carcinoma Sarcomatoid carcinoma Carcinoid tumor Salivary gland-like carcinoma EMECL is considered a subtype of salivary gland-like carcinoma, tumors so named because their histological appearance and characteristics closely resemble malignant neoplasms arising in the major and minor salivary glands. (wikipedia.org)
  • The focal resemblance to other salivary gland-type tumors may cause diagnostic difficulties, particularly in small endobronchial biopsies. (wikipedia.org)
  • Although little is known about their biologic potential due to limited follow-up data, these tumors when in the lung clearly have the capacity to infiltrate and metastasize and therefore should be designated as epithelial-myoepithelial carcinoma. (wikipedia.org)
  • lobe
  • The scan revealed increased metabolic activity in lower lobe of the right lung and posterior basal segment pleural base mass. (apollohospitals.com)
  • It often extends over the area of an entire lobe or lung, with fibrotic areas involving costophrenic angles, apices, lung bases, and interlobar fissures. (wikipedia.org)
  • nodules
  • A, the first patient (Case 1) exhibited multiple nodules of varying sizes scattered throughout both lungs based on chest radiography. (aacrjournals.org)
  • tumor cells
  • The tests analyze circulating tumor cells (CTCs) Analysis of individual CTCs demonstrated a high level of heterogeneity seen at the single cell level for both protein expression and protein localization and the CTCs reflected both the primary biopsy and the changes seen in the metastatic sites. (wikipedia.org)
  • pleural
  • From the lungs, some asbestos fibres (mainly short fibres) can also migrate to pleural and peritoneal spaces. (wikipedia.org)
  • Benign asbestos-related pleural abnormalities encompass four types of pleural changes: Pleural plaques Diffuse pleural thickening Benign asbestos pleural effusions Rounded atelectasis (folded lung) The pleura appears to be more sensitive than the lung parenchyma to the effects of asbestos fibres. (wikipedia.org)
  • Thus asbestos-related pleural diseases can result from much lower doses than the fibrotic changes in the lung. (wikipedia.org)
  • pleura
  • Asbestos-related diseases are disorders of the lung and pleura caused by the inhalation of asbestos fibres. (wikipedia.org)
  • 2004). Pathology and Genetics of Tumours of the Lung, Pleura, Thymus and Heart (PDF). (wikipedia.org)
  • procedure
  • Although applying the basic principles of the rat transplantation technique, the procedure of lung transplantation in mice differs substantially in regard to particular technical aspects. (docplayer.net)
  • describe
  • Herein, we describe a patient who developed lung adenocarcinoma twice in addition to LAMP. (omicsonline.org)
  • Recently reported by Okazaki and colleagues for the first time, we describe our independently developed technique of orthotopic single-lung transplantation in the mouse. (docplayer.net)
