  • ovary
  • My daughter just turned 21 and has a 17 cm ovarian cyst on her left ovary which the doctor thinks is a mucinous cystadoma. (wisegeek.com)

  • It is well documented that malignancy may be only focally present in mucinous neoplasms of the ovary, so thorough sampling is imperative. (wikipedia.org)
  • appendiceal mucinous
  • Indeed, the 5-year survival of appendiceal mucinous adenocarcinomas with distant metastasis is significantly better than those of non-mucinous carcinomas. (springer.com)
  • In this classification system, cases of DPAM were characterized by peritoneal lesions composed of abundant extracellular mucin containing scant simple to focally proliferative mucinous epithelium with little cytologic atypia or mitotic activity (in other words, most cells looked fairly normal and there was no evidence of mitosis which would indicate that cells were rapidly dividing), with or without an associated appendiceal mucinous adenoma. (wikipedia.org)
  • prognosis
  • Mucinous breast cancer generally has a better prognosis (outlook) than most other types of invasive breast cancer. (breastcancercare.org.uk)
  • To enhance the knowledge of medical society on the mucinous cystic neoplasms of the liver, here we aim to summarise contemporary data on these tumours, including the current definition and classification [ 1 ], the recent molecular genetic findings [ 3 , 4 ] as well as the practical issues of clinical presentation, diagnostic approach, treatment and prognosis.

  • High-grade or poorly differentiated mucinous adenocarcinoma has a generally poorer prognosis, though surgical treatment with heated intra-peritoneal chemotherapy (HIPEC) is yielding promising outcomes (see surgical treatment). (wikipedia.org)
  • poorly differentiated
  • It is worth noting that the overall survival rate of patients with SRCC was significantly poorer than that of patients with mucinous or poorly differentiated adenocarcinoma. (wikipedia.org)
  • cancerous
  • Pseudomyxoma peritonei (PMP) is a clinical condition caused by cancerous cells (mucinous adenocarcinoma) that produce abundant mucin or gelatinous ascites. (wikipedia.org)
  • tumours
  • Initially, it was difficult to define their nosological entity and, consequently, these mucinous ductal tumours were known variously [ 1 , 9 ]. (hindawi.com)
  • surgical
  • The patient underwent incisional surgical biopsy, and subsequent histopathologic analysis revealed a colon mucinous adenocarcinoma. (hindawi.com)
  • cysts
  • Resected mucinous cystic neoplasms have a characteristic appearance- they tend to be between 6 and 10 centimeters in size (2 to 5 inches), they contain numerous cysts (small cavities), and the cysts are filled with thick mucin (see the photograph). (wikipedia.org)
  • typically
  • It is characterized by the proliferation of cuboidal and spindle cells arranged in tubular or sheet-like arrays, typically with a mucinous or myxoid background. (wikipedia.org)
  • lymph
  • Because it's less common for mucinous breast cancer to have spread to the lymph nodes under the arm, and it's more likely to grow more slowly than other types of breast cancer, chemotherapy is not often used. (breastcancercare.org.uk)
