Causes of Abdominal Tumor. Infection by Helicobacter pylori is believed to be the cause of most abdominal tumor while autoimmune atrophic gastritis, intestinal metaplasia and various genetic factors are associated with increased risk levels. Its also states that diet plays no role in the genesis of abdominal tumor. However, there is some research done listed down the following dietary risks, and protective factors, for abdominal tumor: "smoked foods, salted fish and meat, and pickled vegetables (appear to increase the risk of stomach cancer.) Nitrates and nitrites are substances commonly found in cured meats. They can be converted by certain bacteria, such as H. pylori, into compounds that have been found to cause stomach cancer in animals. On the other hand, eating fresh fruits and vegetables that contain antioxidant vitamins (such as A and C) appears to lower the risk of abdominal tumor.. In more detail, H. pylori is the main risk factor in 65-80% of abdominal tumor, but in only 2% of such ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Surgery for abdominal metastases of cutaneous melanoma. AU - Gutman, Haim. AU - Hess, Kenneth R.. AU - Kokotsakis, John A.. AU - Ross, Merrick I.. AU - Guinee, Vincent F.. AU - Balch, Charles M.. PY - 2001. Y1 - 2001. N2 - The objective of this study was to support our hypothesis that surgical resection of abdominal metastases of melanoma, regardless of symptomatology, could provide prolonged palliation and improved survival. We performed a retrospective chart review at M.D. Anderson Cancer Center. A series of 251 melanoma patients (stages I, II, or III at registration) who developed intraabdominal metastases during follow-up were studied. Altogether, 96 patients underwent 119 laparotomies; 51 underwent endoscopic or percutaneous procedures; and 116 patients were treated medically. Surgery was associated with a median survival of 11 months, significantly longer than that with other treatment (p ,0.001). Tumor was extirpated during 37% of the first laparotomies, and in an ...

Abdominal cancer can affect any organ in the abdominal cavity and is the result of abnormal and uncontrolled growth of cells in this region. Depending on the affected organ the cancer may be more, or less severe. The most common types of abdominal cancer include: Colorectal cancer;
Multivisceral ex vivo surgery can successfully remove invasive abdominal tumors previously deemed unresectable due to location and vascular involvement.
Editor,-The purpose of this preliminary childhood population based study was to evaluate the use of abdominal ultrasound examination to determine the incidence of abdominal tumours and to investigate the possibility of early diagnosis of these tumours at a preclinical stage.. This study in general population is very difficult because of organisational problems and high cost. Therefore, we studied children under 1 year of age who were referred by their paediatricians, for another reason, to an ultrasonography centre in order to have an ultrasound examination. The most common reasons for referral were the investigation of the urinary tract after a urinary tract infection and the investigation of vomiting for possible gastro-oesophageal reflux. The study was initiated on January 1992, when we asked the radiologists of this centre to examine the whole abdomen of the referred children. In a five year period (January 1992 to December 1996) 7500 infants were examined. None of these children had ...

Pathways of lymph node involvement in upper abdominal malignancies: evaluation with high-resolution CT.: The aim of this study was to enhance our understanding
A 44-year-old woman presented with a tumorous mass on the right hypochondrium, however, no clear tumor was detected. One year later she was found to have an abdominal tumor. Upon surgery, the abdominal tumor was identified as a pedunculated hepatoma arising from the right hepatic lobe and was resected radically. Two years later, the hepatoma recurred as very rare remote metastases to the lung, brain and gingiva, and the patient died of respiratory failure. Autopsy showed no local recurrence in the liver, but remote metastases were present in the lung, brain and lymph nodes. The gingival tumor had disappeared following irradiation therapy.

A massive abdominal tumor measuring about 10 kg has been removed from a female patient, by surgeons in the western Croatian town of Gospic.
Desmoplastic small round cell tumor (DSRCT) is a rare, biologically aggressive soft tissue neoplasm of uncertain differentiation, most often arising in the abdominal and pelvic cavities of adolescents and young adults with a striking male predominance. Histologically, it is characterized by islands of uniform small round cells in prominent desmoplastic stroma, and it has a polyimmunophenotypic profile, typically expressing WT1 and cytokeratin, desmin, and neural/neuroendocrine differentiation markers to varying degrees. Tumors at other sites and with variant morphology are more rarely described. DSRCT is associated with a recurrent t(11;22)(p13;q12) translocation, leading to the characteristic EWSR1-WT1 gene fusion. Fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH), to detect EWSR1 rearrangement, and reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) to assess for EWSR1-WT1 fusion transcripts are routine diagnostic ancillary tools. We present a large institutional comparative series of FISH and ...

Gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs) are rare abdominal tumors which arise from the interstitial cells of Cajal in the gastrointestinal tract. Gastric GISTs are the most commonly seen GIST tumors and may grow to a very large size. They are often associated with abdominal pain, anorexia and weight loss. Most of them can be detected by CT. These tumors have been found to harbor mutations in CD117 which causes constitutional activation of the tyrosine kinase signaling pathway and is considered to be pathognomic. Tyrosine kinase inhibitors such as imatinib have revolutionized the treatment of these tumors, which are otherwise resistant to conventional chemotherapy and radiotherapy. Although surgical resection is the mainstay of treatment, tyrosine kinase inhibitors have been useful in prolonging the recurrence-free survival of these patients. Resistance to imatinib has been reported in GISTs with specific mutations. We present a case of gastric GIST which grew to a very large size and was ...
DSRCT happens to be a particularly aggressive form of cancer. As mentioned, its five year survival rate is less than fifteen percent. There is no standard therapeutic course recommended for DSRCT because no one method has shown a clear superiority to others.. Typically DSRCT is treated through surgery, chemotherapy, radiotherapy and sometimes stem cell transplantation. Recently molecular targeted therapy has been attempted as well.. Surgery is invasive, and involves excision of the omentum, a splenectomy and lymph node resections. Because the tumor is so invasive, it is rarely possible to achieve the ideal - complete excision with wide surgical margins.. Chemotherapy more often than not is ineffective in treating DSRCT. Although these tumors are sensitive to the chemotherapy, almost all patients relapse. This is probably because there are certain cells (sometimes called cancer stem cells) that are particularly resistant to chemotherapy and/or radiation, and these are the cells that tend to ...

The Effect of Anesthetic Technique on Cardiac Troponin-T and Systemic Inflammatory Response after Major Abdominal Cancer Surgery Abstract.
The most common of such causes is malignant neoplasia (eighty% of scenarios in a single research) and the majority of People conditions are hemangiosarcoma (88%). More malignant tumors can involve mesothelioma, pheochromocytoma and hepatic metastasis from other abdominal malignancies. The most common non-malignant cause is actually a ruptured splenic hematoma which in fact has a great prognosis with splenectomy alone. Homeowners should typically make immediate selections with regards to stabilization, treatment and surgery for their pet. Consequently, it is vital to inform homeowners of your likelihood of their pet acquiring malignant neoplasia along with the treatment alternatives in addition to the overall weak prognosis related with hemangiosarcoma (HSA ...

Health problems attributed to the IVC are most often associated with it being compressed (ruptures are rare because it has a low intraluminal pressure). Typical sources of external pressure are an enlarged aorta (abdominal aortic aneurysm), the gravid uterus (aortocaval compression syndrome) and abdominal malignancies, such as colorectal cancer, renal cell carcinoma and ovarian cancer. Since the inferior vena cava is primarily a right-sided structure, unconscious pregnant females should be turned on to their left side (the recovery position), to relieve pressure on it and facilitate venous return. In rare cases, straining associated with defecation can lead to restricted blood flow through the IVC and result in syncope (fainting).[1] Occlusion of the IVC is rare, but considered life-threatening and is an emergency. It is associated with deep vein thrombosis, IVC filters, liver transplantation and instrumentation (e.g. catheter in the femoral vein).[2] ...
BACKGROUND. Adrenal tumors are uncommon in dogs and very rare in cats. Adrenocortical tumors and pheochromocytoma are the most common adrenal tumors. Adrenocortical tumors cause hyperadrenocorticism (or Cushings disease). Pheochromocytomas can be an incidental finding or produce various non-specific signs because of the release of catecholamines. Both types of adrenal tumors can invade into the adjacent caudal vena cava (major abdominal vein) and kidney. Metastasis is uncommon.. DIAGNOSIS. Diagnosis of adrenal tumors can be difficult. Screening tests (such as urine cortisol-to-creatinine ratio, low-dose dexamethasone suppression test, and ACTH stimulation test) can confirm the diagnosis of hyperadrenocorticism and differentiate whether a pituitary or adrenal tumor is responsible for causing clinical signs. Abdominal ultrasound is necessary to document the presence of an adrenal mass. Ultrasound, contrast vascular radiographs, or CT scans may be necessary to determine invasion of the tumor into ...

Introduction. Wilms tumour (nephroblastoma) is the second most common intra-abdominal tumour presenting during childhood, with approximately 80% of cases diagnosed before the age of 5 years.1 Advances in treatment have greatly improved the prognosis for children with this condition. Where survival rates were once less than 30%, they are currently quoted at 90%, making it one of the success stories of modern medicine.2. Nephroblastomas metastasise predominantly to the lungs (58%) and liver (29%), and only rarely to other sites such as the skeleton, mediastinum and brain. Most relapses (90%) occur within 4 years of diagnosis.3 The practice of post-treatment surveillance imaging is aimed at the early detection of tumour recurrence, thereby enabling early salvage therapy. Long-term survival following salvage therapy has reportedly increased from below 30% in the mid-1980s, to the current range of 50% - 60%.4. Recommendations for post-treatment surveillance imaging of patients with Wilms tumour that ...
Primary tumors of the heart are extremely rare tumors that arise from the normal tissues that make up the heart. This is in contrast to secondary tumors of the heart, which are typically either metastatic from another part of the body, or infiltrate the heart via direct extension from the surrounding tissues. The most common primary tumor of the heart is the myxoma. In surgical series, the myxoma makes up as much as 77% of all primary tumors of the heart. Less common tumors of the heart include lipoma and cystic tumor of the atrioventricular nodal region. About 20 percent of primary tumors of the heart are malignant in nature. Malignant tumors of the heart include rhabdomyosarcomas, angiosarcomas, myxosarcomas, fibrosarcomas, leiomyosarcomas, reticulum cell sarcomas, desmoplastic small round cell tumor, and liposarcomas. The cardiac sarcomas may occur at any age, but are more commonly seen in individuals in their 20s to 40s. They occur equally in males and females. A subset of the primary tumors ...

The median age of the patients was 52 years. The primary tumor subtype was luminal A (LA) in 7 cases, luminal B (LB) in 7 cases, luminal-Her2 (LH) in 4 cases, triple negative (TN) in 10 cases, and undetermined in 3 cases. The median disease-free interval was 61 months (11-200) after excluding 2 cases with lung oligometastases at the time of first examination. The 5-year recurrence- free survival rate after resection of lung oligometastases was 55%, and the 5-year overall survival rate was 88%. The subtype did not change between the primary tumor and the oligometastases in 19 of 28 cases (68%). Among the 9 cases where the subtype changed (32%), the change was from LB to LA in 4 cases, which did not influence the subsequent treatment. However, in the remaining 5 cases, the subtype changed from LA, LB, or LH to TN in 4 cases and from TN to LA in 1 case, leading to a change in the subsequent treatment. ...

Purpose: MRI provides detailed pictures of soft tissues without obstruction by overlying bone. It is often used to clarify findings from previous X-ray studies or CT scans. It can show or demonstrate wide areas of the abdomen from multiple planes. MRI can evaluate certain organ functions. It clearly shows lymph nodes and blood vessels, and is a noninvasive imaging method for evaluation of blood flow.. MRI may be used in diagnosing abnormal growths. It can distinguish tumors or other lesions from normal tissues and can provide information for the staging (determination of the size, extent, and spread) of abdominal tumors. MRI is sometimes used to avoid the dangers of angiography, repeated exposure to radiation, or for patients that cannot receive iodinated contrast dye.. Prior Preparation: No preparatory tests, diets, or medications are usually needed, unless the colon needs to be cleansed (with preparations such as a laxative or an enema). An MRI can be performed immediately after other imaging ...
Hi Loria - Ive had indolent, follicular NHL, stage 4 bone marrow involvement since August, 2009. Priimary site in an abdominal tumor - did watchful waiting for 9 months, then a year of CFP-R and Treanda-R chemos. IF you havent seen a good Oncologist by now, that should be your first step. On my first visit, my wonderful Dr. ordered a bone marrow test to find the stage. My local office of 9 oncologists is affilated with a major cancer research hospital and center just two hours away. Ive been there at his suggestion for second opinions 5 times. Youll meet many wonderful people on this site - Joanie, Sue, John were all here to great me when I first began my journey and they, along with many others, will be here for you as well. Our cancer is never curable but hopefully it will go into remission between treatments and youll get your life back again for months. Thats where I am now as I do a 2 year Rituxan treatment every other month with no side effects thus far. Joanies right - faith, ...

We spoke to lead author, Sohrab Shah, to get some background on this research.. What features of this particular cancer made you want to study its metastasis? Were you surprised by your findings?. High grade serous ovarian cancers are often widespread through the peritoneal cavity at diagnosis. We wanted to ask what are the characteristics of cells that spread and what is the distribution of these cells throughout the abdominal lesions. The focus was to study the disease state prior to any treatment to characterize the diversity and take in inventory of the substrate of clones upon which treatment selective pressures may be acting. Many patients experience relapse after initial response to treatment. Mapping which clones lead to relapse remains a key question in the field. This was borne out in one patient in our study where specific clones that led to relapses were already present at diagnosis but only represented a minority of branches in the clonal phylogeny.. It is important to note that ...
Despite improvements in chemotherapy and radical surgical debulking, peritoneal carcinomatosis (PC) remains among the most common causes of death from abdominal cancers. Immunotherapies have been effective for selected solid malignancies, but their potential in PC has been little explored. Here, we report that intraperitoneal injection of an infected cell vaccine (ICV), consisting of autologous tumor cells infected ex vivo with an oncolytic Maraba MG1 virus expressing IL12, promotes the migration of activated natural killer (NK) cells to the peritoneal cavity in response to the secretion of IFNγ-induced protein-10 (IP-10) from dendritic cells. The recruitment of cytotoxic, IFNγ-secreting NK cells was associated with reduced tumor burden and improved survival in a colon cancer model of PC. Even in mice with bulky PC (tumors , 8 mm), a complete radiologic response was demonstrated within 8 to14 weeks, associated with 100% long-term survival. The impact of MG1-IL12-ICV upon NK-cell recruitment ...
