A blood-based DNA test for colorectal cancer screening. (1/2185)

Early detection of colorectal tumors through the identification of mutant DNA in serum or plasma could have a substantial impact on morbidity and mortality. Somatic mutations are specific biomarkers for neoplastic cells, but their detection requires sensitive assays, as the number of circulating mutant molecules is small compared to the number of normal DNA molecules. A newly developed method can provide this sensitivity and at the same time precisely quantify the fraction of mutant molecules present in the clinical sample. Using this technology, it has been found that more than half of patients with early stage disease contain mutant DNA in their circulation.  (+info)

Is zero underestimation feasible? Extended Vacuum-Assisted Breast Biopsy in solid lesions - a blind study. (2/2185)

BACKGROUND: Vacuum-Assisted Breast Biopsy (VABB) is effective for the preoperative diagnosis of non-palpable mammographic solid lesions. The main disadvantage is underestimation, which might render the management of atypical ductal hyperplasia (ADH), and ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) difficult. This study aims to develop and assess a modified way of performing VABB. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A total of 107 women with non-palpable mammographic breast solid tumors BI-RADS 3 and 4 underwent VABB with 11G, on the stereotactic Fischer's table. 54 women were allocated to the recommended protocol and 24 cores were obtained according to the consensus meeting in Nordesterdt (1 offset-main target in the middle of the lesion and one offset inside). 53 women were randomly allocated to the extended protocol and 96 cores were excised (one offset-main target in the middle of the lesion and 7 peripheral offsets). A preoperative diagnosis was established. Women with a preoperative diagnosis of precursor/preinvasive/invasive lesion underwent open surgery. A second pathologist, blind to the preoperative results and to the protocol made the postoperative diagnosis. The percentage of the surface excised via VABB was retrospectively calculated on the mammogram. The discrepancy between preoperative and postoperative diagnoses along with the protocol adopted and the volume removed were evaluated by Fisher's exact test and Mann-Whitney-Wilcoxon test, respectively. RESULTS: Irrespectively of the protocol adopted, 82.2% of the lesions were benign. 14.0% of the lesions were malignancies (5.1% of BI-RADS 3, 5.3% of BI-RADS 4A, 25% of BI-RADS 4B, and 83.3% of BI-RADS 4C lesions). 3.7% of the biopsies were precursor lesions. There was no evidence of underestimation in either protocols. In the standard protocol, the preoperative/postoperative diagnoses were identical. In the extended protocol, the postoperative diagnosis was less severe than the preoperative in 55.5% of cases (55.5% vs. 0%, p = 0.029), and preoperative ADH was totally removed. The phenomenon of discrepancy between diagnoses was associated with larger volume removed (8.20 +/- 1.10 vs. 3.32 +/- 3.50 cm3, p = 0.037) and higher removed percentage of the lesion (97.83 +/- 4.86% vs. 74.34 +/- 23.43%, p = 0.024) CONCLUSION: The extended protocol seems to totally excise precursor lesions, with minimal underestimation. This might possibly point to a modified management of ADH lesions.  (+info)

Precursors and preinvasive lesions of the breast: the role of molecular prognostic markers in the diagnostic and therapeutic dilemma. (3/2185)

Precursors and preinvasive lesions of the breast include atypical ductal hyperplasia (ADH), ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS), and lobular neoplasia (LN). There is a significant debate regarding the classification, diagnosis, prognosis and management of these lesions. This review article describes the current theories regarding the pathogenesis and molecular evolution of these lesions. It reviews the implication of a variety of molecules in the continuum of breast lesions: estrogen receptors (ER-alpha and ER-beta), c-erb-B2 (Her2/neu), p53, Ki-67, bcl-2, E-cadherin, transforming growth factor-beta (TGF-beta), p27 (Kip1), p16 (INK4a), p21 (Waf1), vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF). With respect to the aforementioned molecules, this article reviews their pathophysiological importance, and puts the stress on whether they confer additional risk for invasive breast cancer or not. This knowledge has the potential to be of importance in the therapeutic decisions presenting in the common clinical practice.  (+info)

TUESDAY, Aug. 18, 2020 (HealthDay News) -- Women smokers already have one bad habit. A new study finds another: Theyre less likely than others to go for cancer screenings.. Moreover, theyre more likely to have spreading cancer when diagnosed, according to findings. For the report, researchers collected data on more than 89,000 postmenopausal women who took part in a long-running U.S. study. More than half had never smoked; 41% were former smokers; and 6% were current smokers, although nearly half of these women quit smoking by the end of the study. Over an average of nine years of follow-up, more than 7,000 women developed breast cancer, 1,600 had colon cancer and 61 had cervical cancer. Compared with nonsmokers, former smokers were more likely to have regular cancer screenings, but current smokers were much less likely to do so. The report was published online Aug. 13 in the journal BMJ Open. Concern for personal health is the most common reason given for smoking cessation among former ...
Theres a bit of controversy among doctors and researchers over whether annual physicals are actually necessary for healthy patients, but new research has identified one distinct benefit of routine visits with a primary care physician: increased colon cancer screenings.. Colon cancer is the third most common cancer among men and women in the United States. Current screening guidelines recommend that most individuals begin routine screening at the age of 50 and every 10 years thereafter. However, despite these recommendations, reports by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) indicate that only 65.1 percent of eligible individuals are current with colon cancer screenings ...
Cancer prevention, screening and early detection programs have been among the most beneficial health care practices implemented in the United States, saving countless lives every year.

The findings of the present study show that women who receive opioid prescriptions are no less likely to report undergoing recommended cancer screenings than those who do not receive such prescriptions. In models that did not account for their greater health care utilization, the results suggested a greater likelihood of breast, cervical, and colorectal cancer screenings among women prescribed opioids compared to women who were not. Adjusting for total doctors office visits showed attenuation of this effect. These fully adjusted models showed little relation between opioids and cancer screenings. This suggests that the key driver of whether women receive recommended cancer screenings is simply how often they see their doctor.. The opioid-preventive care relation was consistent in sensitivity analyses that examined different categories of opioid prescription use. These findings counter prevailing concerns that addressing pain and managing prescription opioid therapy might be detrimental to ...

These five reasons to get regular medical checkups, however, could prove to you why this is important and why you should be getting them every year.. Prevention is important - If most illnesses are caught early enough, curing them is relatively simple. The longer you wait to see a doctor, however, the more likely it is that any illness you have has developed to the extent that it could be difficult to cure.. Get regular medical checkups and worrying about an illness developing could be a thing of the past.. Cancer screenings - Various types of cancer screenings will be included in any regular medical checkup. As cancers that are caught early are much easier to cure than those that are not, it is important to have regular cancer screenings..

There is growing support for the strategy of screening high-risk populations for early cancer detection because of the lack of progress in improving outcomes with advanced metastatic disease (1 , 2) . In light of recent promising reports with spiral computed tomography (CT)-based lung cancer screening, this approach is conceptually attractive for lung cancer (3, 4, 5) . However, a critical question in evaluating the benefit of any screening detection technology is whether the natural history of asymptomatic disease detected by the technology is the same as that of disease that comes to medical attention in the conventional way, because of symptoms or signs (6) . If lung cancer screening identified a less aggressive form of tumor that the patient would have died naturally with, rather than of, the screening results would look promising, but the apparent health benefit would be illusory.. This issue of potential overdiagnosis (i.e., of benign or less aggressive disease) has been at the heart of ...

Some countries have more cancer cases and some have less, some have one type of cancer, some have another. There are various types of cancers, each with its own special properties, the race it effects, the age, the sex and the different part of the body. Introduction Cancer is a progressive disease and as such it will be fatal if it is not treated effectively. Cancer (in most cases) arises from a single cell. All cancer cells have mutations or changes affecting one or more oncogenes in the cells. These mutations or changes are usually caused by a foreign source such as cigarette smoke or sunlight. Because of these mutations some genes may not function properly. ...

Early detection saved Rods life. Personal experience and the loss of a close friend has made Rod Webber painfully aware of the importance of participating in bowel cancer screening. After procrastinating over doing the at-home test, Rod finally completed it and followed up the inconclusive results with his doctor. This was a life-saving decision, as despite having no obvious signs, Rod underwent surgery to remove a polyp. Tragically, his old school friend, Larry Collins, was not lucky enough to have had his bowel cancer diagnosed and treated before it spread and eventually took his life. For Rod, this is a stark reminder of the difference that an early diagnosis and treatment can make. He urges others to take, what can ultimately be, life-saving preventative steps too..
