  • androgen
  • Features that would be most concerning for an androgen-producing tumor include severe hirsutism (pattern of hair growth as seen in a male), onset outside the peripubertal period, sudden onset with rapid progression, and concomitant signs of virilization such as clitoromegaly, voice deepening, male pattern alopecia and a male patterned escutcheon. (clinicalpainadvisor.com)
  • Signs that are suggestive of an androgen-secreting tumor in a patient with hirsutism is rapid onset, virilization and palpable abdominal mass. (wikipedia.org)
  • Certain types of ovarian tumors , such as Sertoli-Leydig cell tumor and steroid cell tumor, can produce androgen. (healthline.com)

  • hypoplasia
  • Hyperestrogenism may also cause blood dyscrasias (condition in which any of the blood components is abnormal), bone marrow hypoplasia (underdevelopment or incomplete development of a tissue or organ), pancytopenia (reduction in the number of white blood cells, red blood cells as well as platelets) which could prove fatal.

  • gonads
  • Gonads arise from the thickening of coelomic epithelium, which at first appears as multiple cell layers. (wikipedia.org)
  • proliferation
  • Additional functions of osteonectin beneficial to tumor cells include angiogenesis, proliferation and migration. (wikipedia.org)
  • This molecule has been implicated in several biological functions, including mineralization of bone and cartilage, inhibiting mineralization, modulation of cell proliferation, facilitation of acquisition of differentiated phenotype and promotion of cell attachment and spreading. (wikipedia.org)
  • It also regulates the proliferation of some cells, especially endothelial cells, mediated by its ability to bind to cytokines and growth factors. (wikipedia.org)
  • Regardless of sex, though, WNT4 is needed for cell proliferation. (wikipedia.org)
  • scrotum
  • The cells of unaffected genetic males then masculinize by, among other things, enlarging the genital tubercle into a penis but in females it becomes the clitoris, while what in females becomes the labia fuses to become the scrotum of males (where the testicles will later descend). (wikipedia.org)
  • Granular
  • about two weeks are needed for a cell to migrate from the basal cell layer to the top of the granular cell layer, and an additional two weeks to cross the stratum corneum. (wikipedia.org)

  • androgenic hormones
  • The partial unresponsiveness of the cell to the presence of androgenic hormones impairs the masculinization of male genitalia in the developing fetus, as well as the development of male secondary sexual characteristics at puberty, but does not significantly impair female genital or sexual development. (wikipedia.org)
  • The unresponsiveness of the cell to the presence of androgenic hormones prevents the masculinization of male genitalia in the developing fetus, as well as the development of male secondary sexual characteristics at puberty, but does allow, without significant impairment, female genital and sexual development in genetic males with the condition.
