  • epithelial
  • Dysplasia (from Ancient Greek δυσ- dys- , "bad" or "difficult" and πλάσις plasis , "formation") is a term used in pathology to refer to an abnormality of development or an epithelial anomaly of growth and differentiation ( epithelial dysplasia ). (wikipedia.org)
  • Epithelial dysplasia consists of an expansion of immature cells (such as cells of the ectoderm ), with a corresponding decrease in the number and location of mature cells. (wikipedia.org)
  • invasive
  • Philosophy of care: I provide individualized, competent, compassionate care for women with cancers of the female reproductive tract including ovarian, uterine, cervical, tubal, vulvar and vaginal cancers and pre-invasive cancers. (swedish.org)
  • Because of the likelihood that untreated or recurrent cervical dysplasia may progress to invasive cancer, there is an urgent need to develop appropriate therapies. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Cancer
  • Vulvar cancer is a rare type of cancer. (icdlist.com)
  • Because of its high tumor selectivity, excellent cosmetic effect and low toxicity, photomedicine seems to be a promising tool for diagnosing (CIN and small intraperitoneal ovarian cancer nodules) and treating some gynecological neoplasm (VIN, intraperitoneal ovarian cancer and endometrial cancer). (gfmer.ch)
  • 3 Dysplasia, along with additional risk factors, can potentially result in cancer. (uspharmacist.com)
  • HL- and HPV-related neoplasms are the commonest NADC in a cancer referral hospital from a middle-income country with universal access to cART since year 2005. (biomedcentral.com)
  • The likelihood of the development to cancer is related to the degree of dysplasia. (wikipedia.org)
  • The risk of low-grade dysplasia transforming into high-grade dysplasia, and eventually cancer, is low. (wikipedia.org)
  • In particular, a strong association with lung cancer and, less frequently, with haematological neoplasms was described [ 2 ]. (hindawi.com)
  • There are no screening strategies for the prevention of vulvar cancer through early detection of vulvar HSIL (VIN usual type). (acog.org)
  • Because of the potential for occult invasion, wide local excision should be performed if cancer is suspected, even if biopsies show vulvar HSIL. (acog.org)
  • Women with vulvar HSIL (VIN usual type) are at risk of recurrent disease and vulvar cancer throughout their lifetimes. (acog.org)
  • situ
  • For each site there are six possible code numbers according to whether the neoplasm in question is malignant, benign, in situ, of uncertain behavior, or of unspecified nature. (icdlist.com)
  • The term dysplasia is typically used when the cellular abnormality is restricted to the originating tissue, as in the case of an early, in-situ neoplasm . (wikipedia.org)
  • differentiation
  • Dysplasia, in which cell maturation and differentiation are delayed, can be contrasted with metaplasia , in which cells of one mature, differentiated type are replaced by cells of another mature, differentiated type. (wikipedia.org)
  • behavior
  • 8 NEOPLASMS OF UNCERTAIN BEHAVIOR The ultimate behavior of certain neoplasms cannot be determined at the time they are discovered, and a firm distinction between benign and malignant tumor cells cannot be made. (docplayer.net)
  • 9 NEOPLASMS OF UNSPECIFIED BEHAVIOR Category D49 is provided for those situations in which neither the behavior nor the morphology of the neoplasm is specified in the diagnostic statement or elsewhere in the medical record. (docplayer.net)
  • 10 UNSPECIFIED MASS OR LESION It is incorrect to select a code from category D49, Neoplasms of unspecified behavior, when only the terms 'mass' or 'lesion' are used. (docplayer.net)
  • immature
  • Myelodysplastic syndromes , or dysplasia of blood-forming cells, show increased numbers of immature cells in the bone marrow , and a decrease in mature, functional cells in the blood . (wikipedia.org)
  • potentially
  • Because of this, researchers design screening recommendations which assume that if a physician can find no dysplasia at certain time, then doing testing before waiting until new dysplasia could potentially develop would be a waste of medical resources for the patient and the healthcare provider because the chances of detecting anything is extremely low. (wikipedia.org)
  • occur
  • The principle behind these tests is that physicians expect dysplasia to occur at the same rate in a typical individual as it would in many other people. (wikipedia.org)
  • type
  • Treatment is recommended for all women with vulvar HSIL (VIN usual type). (acog.org)
  • When occult invasion is not a concern, vulvar HSIL (VIN usual type) can be treated with excision, laser ablation, or topical imiquimod (off-label use). (acog.org)
  • Cigarette smoking is strongly associated with vulvar HSIL (VIN usual type), and cessation should be encouraged. (acog.org)
  • Methods
  • In this article we are going to review the mechanisms of photomedicine, its use in diagnosing and treating gynecological neoplasm, and its effect compared with traditional methods. (gfmer.ch)
