  • Abdominal
  • 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)
  • These tumors vary in size from small and nearly imperceptible to large, filling the abdominal cavity. (wikipedia.org)
  • The typical symptoms of an LMP tumor can include abdominal distension or pelvic pain. (wikipedia.org)
  • pathologist
  • The disease is diagnosed through a combination of blood tests, imaging, endoscopy, and sometimes surgical exploration, with confirmation obtained after a pathologist examines cells from the tumor under a microscope. (wikipedia.org)
  • endometrial
  • It is divided into two types, homologous (in which the sarcomatous component is made of tissues found in the uterus such as endometrial, fibrous and/or smooth muscle tissues) and a heterologous type (made up of tissues not found in the uterus, such as cartilage, skeletal muscle and/or bone). (wikipedia.org)
  • Despite this, when purely endometrial tumors are compared to MMMTs, the MMMT tumor tends to have a worse prognosis. (wikipedia.org)
  • Symptoms
  • To some extent, the symptoms depend upon the location of the tumor: patients with cholangiocarcinoma in the extrahepatic bile ducts (outside the liver) are more likely to have jaundice, while those with tumors of the bile ducts within the liver more often have pain without jaundice. (wikipedia.org)
  • Hepatic adenomas are a rare benign tumour of the liver, which may present with hepatomegaly or other symptoms. (wikipedia.org)
  • structures
  • Components can include: cystic areas cystic and fibrous areas predominantly fibrous areas The chance of malignancy of the tumor increases with the amount of solid areas present, including both papillary structures and any necrotic tissue present. (wikipedia.org)
  • 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)
  • Under the new definition, BAC is defined as a tumor that grows in a lepidic (that is, a scaly covering) fashion along pre-existing airway structures, without detectable invasion or destruction of the underlying tissue, blood vessels, or lymphatics. (wikipedia.org)
