• We report a case of a 66-year-old man with lower abdominal pain who had a large cystic tumor at the dome of the bladder. (canjurol.com)
  • Main duct (54%) and combined (58%) type tumor, and tumors with mural nodules (64%) often showed invasion. (ovid.com)
  • Cystadenocarcinomas (malignant tumors) contain a more solid growth pattern with the hallmarks of malignancy: cellular atypia and stratification, loss of the normal architecture of the tissue, and necrosis. (wikipedia.org)
  • Mucinous cystadenocarcinomas of the urachus are rare. (canjurol.com)
  • These tumors can occur at the same time as another endometrial cancer , like cancer of the uterus. (healthline.com)
  • We undertook hotspot sequencing of 50 genes commonly mutated in human cancer across 69 mucinous ovarian tumors. (biomedcentral.com)
  • Our goals were to establish the overall frequency of cancer-hotspot mutations across a large cohort, especially those tumors previously thought to be "RAS-pathway alteration negative", using highly-sensitive next-generation sequencing as well as further explore a small number of cases with apparent heterogeneity in RAS-pathway activating alterations.

  • Ovarian cancer is classified according to the histology of the tumor, obtained in a pathology report. (wikipedia.org)
  • Given the spectrum of RAS-activating mutations, it is clear that targeting this pathway may be a viable therapeutic option for patients with recurrent or advanced stage mucinous ovarian carcinoma, however caution should be exercised in selecting one or more personalized therapeutics given the frequency of non-redundant RAS-activating alterations.

  • OncologyPRO has evolved in July 2017 to offer you direct access to our rich content either by tumour site or according to the objectives of your visit. (esmo.org)
  • The risk of mucinous tumors is significantly associated with smoking: relative risk for current smokers 2.22 (2.22 times the risk for non-smokers) and 2.02 for past smokers. (wikipedia.org)
  • approximately 5% of primary mucinous tumors are bilateral. (wikipedia.org)
  • 10-year survival rates for mucinous tumors is excellent in the absence of invasion. (wikipedia.org)
