  • renal cell carc
  • In oncology in general, it is observed that tumour size is often strongly predictive of the clinical behaviour and, thus, a number of cancers (e.g. adenocarcinoma of the lung, papillary renal cell carcinoma) are defined, in part, on the basis of a minimum size. (wikipedia.org)
  • cores
  • Once PCa is detected further descriptive information regarding the type of cancer, amount of tumour and grade in prostate needle cores is crucial for management of the patient and to assess potential for local cure and the risk for distant metastasis. (uroweb.org)
  • Others are controlled by the urologist, including the number of cores obtained, method and location of biopsy, and amount of tissue obtained. (uroweb.org)
  • To validate previously published nomograms for predicting insignificant prostate cancer (PCa) that incorporate clinical data, percentage of biopsy cores positive (%BC+) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or MRI/MR spectroscopic imaging (MRSI) results. (pubmedcentralcanada.ca)
  • found that a 'full model' incorporating millimetres of cancerous and benign tissue in biopsy cores was more accurate than both a 'medium' model including the percentage of biopsy cores positive (%BC+) and a simpler base model. (pubmedcentralcanada.ca)
  • In prostate biopsies it is not predictive of prostate cancer in one year if the prostate was well-sampled, i.e. if there were 8 or more cores. (wikipedia.org)
  • progression
  • After progression with osimertinib treatment, core needle biopsy was performed and next-generation sequencing was performed. (hindawi.com)
  • However, because there is a 12-16% chance of progression to more severe dysplasia, the physician may want to follow the results more aggressively by performing a colposcopy with biopsy. (wikipedia.org)
  • To combat this progression, HSIL is usually followed by an immediate colposcopy with biopsy to sample or remove the dysplastic tissue. (wikipedia.org)
  • mutations
  • These methods provide a non-invasive alternative to repeat invasive biopsies to evaluate the mutations in cancer and plan individualized treatments. (wikipedia.org)
  • Pathology
  • Because low grade PIN has no significance and does not require repeat biopsies or treatment, it is not mentioned in pathology reports. (wikipedia.org)
  • surgery
  • Surgery is the only treatment that can cure pancreatic adenocarcinoma, and may also be done to improve quality of life without the potential for cure. (wikipedia.org)
  • repeat
  • 4 ng/mL, the DRE is normal (if done), and no other indications for biopsy are present, the NCCN recommends repeat testing in selected patients at 1-4 year intervals. (medscape.com)
