  • genital
  • GARDASIL is also approved in the United States for use in boys and men ages 9 through 26 years of age for the prevention of anal cancer caused by HPV types 16 and 18, for the prevention of anal dysplasias and precancerous lesions caused by HPV types 6, 11, 16 and 18, and the prevention of genital warts caused by HPV types 6 and 11.

  • ovarian
  • 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)
  • INTRODUCTION: Struma ovarii is a rare form of ovarian neoplasm and consists mainly of thyroid tissue. (biomedsearch.com)
  • HSIL
  • There are no screening strategies for the prevention of vulvar cancer through early detection of vulvar HSIL (VIN usual type). (acog.org)
  • 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)
  • Women with vulvar HSIL (VIN usual type) are at risk of recurrent disease and vulvar cancer throughout their lifetimes. (acog.org)
  • penile
  • The incidence of cancer of the cervix declines in women over 50 years of age, after which time increasing incidences of vulvar, penile, and anal cancer, many of which are associated with HPV infection, are seen (Figure 12.17). (damasgate.com)
  • viral
  • but in malignant neoplasms, inte- gration of the viral genome into the host cell DNA is the rule. (damasgate.com)
  • In most neoplasms integration occurs randomly in the host genome, although the viral genome is usually disrupted in the E2 open reading frame, leading to loss of E2 protein transregulatory functions. (damasgate.com)
  • The lesion, first described by Buschke and Lowenstein as a giant condyloma, 2 is associated with the HPV 6 viral subtype. (glowm.com)
  • invasive
  • Mestwerdt used the term "microcarcinoma" to describe cases of early invasive cancer of the cervix, 1 describing it as a lesion invading the stroma to a depth of ≤5 mm, without specification of cell type. (glowm.com)
  • neoplastic
  • In 1974, SGO defined microinvasive cancer as any lesion in which neoplastic cells invade the stroma, in one or more sites, to a depth of ≤3 mm below the base of the epithelium, without lymphatic or blood vessel involvement. (glowm.com)
  • Dysplasia is often indicative of an early neoplastic process. (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)
  • These lesions may occur singly or in clusters that may become confluent (Fig. 1). (glowm.com)
  • differentiation
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • Differentiation between condylomata and vulvar papillomatosis or other vulvar lesions can then be made. (glowm.com)
  • consists
  • 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)
  • Screening
  • 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)
  • recognize
  • It is important to recognize these lesions as most of them are not clinically specific and they have very few characteristics. (isciii.es)
  • 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)
