  • METHODS: A total of 156 patients with stage IIa-IIIb cervical squamous cell carcinoma were randomly divided into the concurrent chemoradiotherapy group (experimental group) and radiotherapy group (control group). (biomedsearch.com)
  • It is now known that this classic triad of symptoms only occurs in 10-15% of cases, and is usually indicative that the renal cell carcinoma (RCC) is in an advanced stage. (wikipedia.org)
  • Not all types of neoplasms cause a tumorous overgrowth of tissue, however (such as leukemia or carcinoma in situ). (wikipedia.org)
  • Anaplastic carcinoma Refers to a heterogeneous group of high-grade carcinomas that feature cells lacking distinct histological or cytological evidence of any of the more specifically differentiated neoplasms. (wikipedia.org)
  • neoplastic
  • Current English, however, both medical and non-medical, uses tumor as a synonym for a neoplasm (a solid or fluid-filled cystic lesion that may or may not be formed by an abnormal growth of neoplastic cells) that appears enlarged in size. (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)
  • resection
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • survival
  • Multivariate logistic regression and Cox proportional hazards model were used to identify predictive factors associated with N stage and survival, respectively. (ovid.com)
  • TPS has prognostic significance for survival in patients with advanced NSCLC, independent from performance status and stage of disease. (biomedsearch.com)
  • It is a malignant neoplasm and is one of the most treatable and curable cancers, with a survival rate above 95% if discovered in early stages. (wikipedia.org)
  • cancers
  • This report analyses retrospectively 133 cases of Stage IA cervical cancers which have been followed up for 10-240 months. (biomedsearch.com)
  • histology
  • Multivariate analysis showed that stage of disease, performance status, histology and TPS were the most important prognostic factors. (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)
  • patients with stage
  • 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)
  • 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)
  • cells
  • Human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) may be elevated in some cases, but this correlates more to the presence of trophoblast cells within the tumour than to the stage of the tumour. (wikipedia.org)
