• tumors
  • Some polyps are tumors (neoplasms) and others are nonneoplastic (for example, hyperplastic or dysplastic). (wikipedia.org)
  • Although it is common in the lung cancer literature to refer to histologically mixed tumors containing significant numbers of malignant giant cells as "giant-cell carcinomas", technically a diagnosis of "giant-cell carcinoma" should be limited strictly to neoplasms containing only malignant giant cells (i.e. "pure" giant-cell carcinoma). (wikipedia.org)
  • congenital
  • Johanson-Blizzard syndrome (JBS) is a rare, sometimes fatal autosomal recessive multisystem congenital disorder featuring abnormal development of the pancreas, nose and scalp, with mental retardation, hearing loss and growth failure. (wikipedia.org)
  • Findings affecting pituitary function in some JBS patients have included such anomalies as the formation of a glial hamartoma (a neoplasm, or tumor composed of glial cells) on a lobe of the pituitary gland, as well congenital underdevelopment of the anterior pituitary. (wikipedia.org)
  • nasal cavity
  • The nasal cavity is the passageway just behind your nose. (medlineplus.gov)
  • Patients come to clinical attention early in life (usually at birth or within the first few months), with a firm subcutaneous nodule at bridge of nose, or as a polypoid mass within the nasal cavity, or somewhere along the upper border of the nasal bow. (wikipedia.org)
  • This lesion is separated into two types based on the anatomic site of presentation: Extranasal (60%): Subcutaneous bridge of nose Intranasal (30%): Superior nasal cavity Mixed (10%): Subcutaneous tissues and nasal cavity (larger lesions) Imaging studies are performed before surgery or biopsy to preclude an intracranial connection.

  • Surgery
  • AD 14), which described plastic surgery techniques and procedures for the correction and the reconstruction of the nose and other body parts. (wikipedia.org)
  • Injuries
  • Most patients ask to remove a bump, narrow nostril width, change the angle between the nose and the mouth, as well as correct injuries, birth defects, or other problems that affect breathing, such as deviated nasal septum or a sinus condition. (wikipedia.org)
  • open
  • The aim of massage is to generate enough hydrostatic pressure (downward, toward the nose) to "pop" open any obstruction. (wikipedia.org)
