• pathology
  • In urologic pathology, PUNLMP, short for papillary urothelial neoplasm of low malignant potential, is an exophytic (outward growing), (microscopically) nipple-shaped (or papillary) pre-malignant growth of the lining of the upper genitourinary tract (the urothelium), which includes the renal pelvis, ureters, urinary bladder and part of the urethra. (wikipedia.org)
  • The pathology of the removed testicle and spermatic cord indicate the presence of the seminoma and assist in the staging. (wikipedia.org)
  • In pathology, grading is a measure of the cell appearance in tumors and other neoplasms. (wikipedia.org)
  • resection
  • Patterns of failure after stereotactic body radiation therapy or lobar resection for clinical stage I non-small-cell lung cancer. (biomedsearch.com)
  • INTRODUCTION: The purpose of this study was to compare patterns of failure between lobar resection (lobectomy or pneumonectomy) and stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) for patients with clinical stage I non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC). (biomedsearch.com)
  • METHODS: From January 2004 to January 2008, 338 patients underwent definitive treatment for pathologically confirmed clinical stage I NSCLC with lobar resection (n = 260) or SBRT (n = 78). (biomedsearch.com)
  • For a reliable en bloc resection of GI neoplasms, a new method of ER called endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) has been developed. (wikipedia.org)
  • However, a new name was proposed to this technique in 2003, as a treatment positioned between EMR and laparoscopic surgery, since this technique is innovative and enables complete resection of neoplasms that were impossible to resect en bloc by EMR. (wikipedia.org)
  • The resected size and shape can be controlled, en bloc resection is possible even in a large neoplasm, and neoplasms with submucosal fibrosis are also resectable. (wikipedia.org)
  • So this technique can be applied to the resection of complex neoplasms such as large neoplasms, ulcerative non-lifting neoplasms, and recurrent neoplasms. (wikipedia.org)
  • The location could prohibit access to the neoplasm and lead to incomplete or no resection at all. (wikipedia.org)
  • metastatic
  • Secondary neoplasm refers to any of a class of cancerous tumor that is either a metastatic offshoot of a primary tumor, or an apparently unrelated tumor that increases in frequency following certain cancer treatments such as chemotherapy or radiotherapy. (wikipedia.org)
  • Lymphoma
  • For lymphoid neoplasms, e.g. lymphoma and leukemia, clonality is proven by the amplification of a single rearrangement of their immunoglobulin gene (for B cell lesions) or T cell receptor gene (for T cell lesions). (wikipedia.org)
  • Studies
  • With the proliferation of laparoscopic abdominal surgery, laparoscopic ultrasonographic technology rapidly developed and studies have confirmed its value in staging intra-abdominal malignancy. (biomedsearch.com)
  • tissue
  • Although there are many kinds of NETs, they are treated as a group of tissue because the cells of these neoplasms share common features, such as looking similar, having special secretory granules, and often producing biogenic amines and polypeptide hormones. (wikipedia.org)
  • Neoplasm is an abnormal growth of tissue which, if it forms a mass, is commonly referred to as a tumor. (wikipedia.org)
  • In a breast-reconstruction procedure, within a multi-stage reconstruction-mammoplasty, a tissue expander (a temporary breast-implant device) is emplaced and used to prepare (shape and enlarge) the recipient site (implant-pocket) to receive and accommodate the breast implant prosthesis. (wikipedia.org)
  • This simply involves the removal of a small amount of tumorous tissue, which is then sent to a (neuro)pathologist for examination and staging. (wikipedia.org)
  • symptoms
  • Melanomas (choroidal, ciliary body and uveal) - In the early stages there may be no symptoms (the person does not know there is a tumor until an ophthalmologist or optometrist looks into the eye with an ophthalmoscope during a routine test). (wikipedia.org)
  • Prominent symptoms usually do not appear until the cancer has infiltrated over 60% of the circumference of the esophageal tube, by which time the tumor is already in an advanced stage. (wikipedia.org)
  • The most common symptoms are associated with increased intracranial pressure due to the size of the neoplasm. (wikipedia.org)
  • abdominal
  • The use of laparoscopic ultrasonography in staging abdominal malignancy. (biomedsearch.com)
  • The combination of diagnostic laparoscopy and laparoscopic ultrasonography has been shown to be consistently superior to other preoperative imaging modalities in the staging of abdominal malignancy. (biomedsearch.com)
  • surgery
  • In a T-stage matched comparison of 152 patients, there was no significant difference in patterns of failure or CSS, whereas OS favored surgery. (biomedsearch.com)
  • common
  • Analgesic nephropathy was once a common cause of kidney injury and end-stage kidney disease in parts of Europe, Australia, and the United States. (wikipedia.org)
  • NSCLC
  • TPS has prognostic significance for survival in patients with advanced NSCLC, independent from performance status and stage of disease. (biomedsearch.com)
  • histology
  • Multivariate analysis showed that stage of disease, performance status, histology and TPS were the most important prognostic factors. (biomedsearch.com)
  • treatment
  • The preferred treatment for most forms of stage 1 seminoma is active surveillance. (wikipedia.org)
  • Regardless of treatment strategy, stage 1 seminoma has nearly a 100% cure rate. (wikipedia.org)
  • Treatment is based on the cancer's stage and location, together with the person's general condition and individual preferences. (wikipedia.org)
  • cause
  • As the use of phenacetin declined, so too did the prevalence of analgesic nephropathy as a cause of end-stage kidney disease. (wikipedia.org)
  • patients
  • TPS was significantly correlated with lactate dehydrogenase (LDH), gamma-glutamyltranspeptidase and alkaline phosphatase, and the median level of TPS in patients with stage 4 disease was significantly higher as compared to stage 3A and 3B disease. (biomedsearch.com)
