  • Variants
  • All types can occur in unusual histologic variants and as mixed cell-type combinations. (wikipedia.org)
  • Lung cancer is an extremely heterogeneous family of malignant neoplasms, with well over 50 different histological variants recognized under the 4th revision of the World Health Organization (WHO) typing system ("WHO-2004"), currently the most widely used lung cancer classification scheme. (wikipedia.org)
  • Gastric
  • Gastric and gastro-esophageal adenocarcinomas are a major health burden globally. (scirp.org)
  • The most common type of gastric cancer is adenocarcinoma, which causes about 750,000 deaths each year. (wikipedia.org)
  • The underlying cancer is most often gastric adenocarcinoma but also with breast cancer, bladder cancer, hepatobiliary cancer, ovarian cancer, uterine cancer, prostate cancer[citation needed], lung cancer and cervical cancer. (wikipedia.org)

  • Guidelines for pathologic diagnosis of malignant mesothelioma: a consensus statement from the International Mesothelioma Interest Group. (biomedsearch.com)
  • As part of the International Mesothelioma Interest Group biennial meeting held in Chicago (October 2006), there was a pathology half-day workshop that included invited lecturers and an open forum on the pathologic diagnosis of malignant mesothelioma (MM). The discussion focused on practical diagnostic guidelines meant to be a reference for the pathologist, rather than a mandate or review of the literature. (biomedsearch.com)
  • Cancer
  • Malignant mesothelioma is a rare type of cancer, in which malignant cells are found in the pleura (the sac lining the chest) or peritoneum (the abdomen). (cancerindex.org)

  • These so-called "polymorphisms" in the DNA repair genes likely increased the man's susceptibility to malignant mesothelioma and to lung cancer. (survivingmesothelioma.com)
  • Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) uses electrical energy delivered through a thin, hollow needle to heat and destroy cancer cells. (survivingmesothelioma.com)
  • Small-cell carcinoma (also known as "small-cell lung cancer", or "oat-cell carcinoma") is a type of highly malignant cancer that most commonly arises within the lung, although it can occasionally arise in other body sites, such as the cervix, prostate, and gastrointestinal tract. (wikipedia.org)
  • It is estimated to account for 1,000 new cases a year in the U.S. Histologically similar to small-cell lung cancer, therapies for small-cell lung cancer are usually used to treat EPSCC. (wikipedia.org)
  • Treatment is similar to small cell lung cancer, but survival rates are much higher than other small-cell carcinomas. (wikipedia.org)
  • In the prostate, small-cell carcinoma (SCCP) is a rare form of cancer (approx 1% of PC). (wikipedia.org)
  • Gastrointestinal cancer refers to malignant conditions of the gastrointestinal tract (GI tract) and accessory organs of digestion, including the esophagus, stomach, biliary system, pancreas, small intestine, large intestine, rectum and anus. (wikipedia.org)
  • There are two main types of esophageal cancer-adenocarcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma. (wikipedia.org)
  • People get liver cancer (also called hepatocellular carcinoma, HCC or hepatoma) typically from a prolonged Hepatitis B or C infection or as a result of cirrhosis from chronic alcoholism. (wikipedia.org)
  • In some cases, the part of the body where cancer cells are first discovered helps the doctor decide which diagnostic tests will be most helpful. (wikipedia.org)
  • Lung cancer in never-smokers is almost universally NSCLC, with a sizeable majority being adenocarcinoma. (wikipedia.org)
  • Historically, adenocarcinoma was more often seen peripherally in the lungs than small cell lung cancer and squamous cell lung cancer, both of which tended to be more often centrally located. (wikipedia.org)
  • Anal cancer is typically an anal squamous cell carcinoma that arises near the squamocolumnar junction, often linked to human papillomavirus (HPV) infection. (wikipedia.org)
  • They explained that the mechanism behind smoking and anal-cancer development is unknown, but researchers speculate that smoking interferes with a process called apoptosis, or programmed cell death, which helps rid the body of abnormal cells that could turn cancerous. (wikipedia.org)
  • A cancer is the abnormal growth of cells that have the ability to invade or spread to other parts of the body. (wikipedia.org)
  • FCP is sometimes seen together with other signs of internal cancer, especially malignant acanthosis nigricans, tripe palms, Leser-Trélat sign, and hypertrichosis lanuginosa acquisita. (wikipedia.org)
  • Recent studies have shown beyond doubt that the old classification paradigm of "small cell carcinoma vs. non-small cell carcinoma" is now obsolete, and that the correct "subclassification" of lung cancer cases is necessary to assure that patients receive optimum management. (wikipedia.org)
  • include
  • Other factors that may explain the increased risk of adenocarcinoma of the esophagus include obesity [ 2 ] and the use of medications such as anticholinergics that can predispose to gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) by relaxing the lower esophageal sphincter. (adventisthealthcare.com)
  • metabolism
  • The epoxyeicosatrienoic acids or EETs are signaling molecules formed within various types of cells by the metabolism of arachidonic acid by a specific subset of Cytochrome P450 enzymes termed cytochrome P450 epoxygenases. (wikipedia.org)
