• nerves
  • Furthermore, the extratemporal (outside temporal bone) facial nerve and its subsidiaries run through the parotid gland and innervate (supply nerves to) the face. (wikipedia.org)
  • Surgeon tries to remove the gland apart from the facial nerve, yet dissecting all branches of the facial nerves. (wikipedia.org)
  • Skin
  • The average square inch (6.5 cm²) of skin holds 650 sweat glands, 20 blood vessels, 60,000 melanocytes, and more than 1,000 nerve endings. (wikipedia.org)
  • For example, scars in the skin are less resistant to ultraviolet radiation, and sweat glands and hair follicles do not grow back within scar tissues. (wikipedia.org)
  • Many conditions affect the human integumentary system-the organ system covering the entire surface of the body and composed of skin, hair, nails, and related muscle and glands. (wikipedia.org)
  • Hyponatremia
  • These observations made it very hard to explain the mechanism for the autosomal recessive disorder of hyponatremia, causing salt wasting in sweat due to mutant CAXII. (wikipedia.org)
  • hormonal
  • We report a case of eruptive poromatosis in pregnancy with 8 poromas occurring in the third trimester, further supporting the hypothesis of a hormonal association in the etiology of this neoplasm. (biomedsearch.com)
  • primary
  • A primary malignant neoplasm that overlaps two or more contiguous (next to each other) sites should be classified to the subcategory/code .8 ('overlapping lesion'), unless the combination is specifically indexed elsewhere. (icd10data.com)
  • concentration
  • The clinical features are variable and their localization is not related to sweat-gland concentration, occurring mainly on the feet and legs. (scielo.br)
  • cancers
  • Contrary to other cancers, it is believed that smoking and drinking do not influence salivary gland malignancies. (wikipedia.org)
  • Complications
  • Diagnostic imaging - computer tomography (CT) scans or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) -conducted to help the surgeon locate the tumor and address complications (i.e. the extent of the neoplasm and its resulting excision). (wikipedia.org)
  • cells
  • Presence of myoepithelial cells in a hyperplastic tissue proves the benignity of the gland and, when absent, indicates cancer. (wikipedia.org)
  • 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)
  • The various kinds of cells that can give rise to NETs are present in endocrine glands and are also diffusely distributed throughout the body, most commonly Kulchitsky cells or similar enterochromaffin-like cells, that are relatively more common in the gastrointestinal and pulmonary systems. (wikipedia.org)
  • hair
  • In the embryo, the epidermis, hair, and glands form from the ectoderm, which is chemically influenced by the underlying mesoderm that forms the dermis and subcutaneous tissues. (wikipedia.org)
  • generally
  • The initial symptoms of RCC often include blood in the urine (occurring in 40% of affected persons at the time they first seek medical attention), flank pain (40%), a mass in the abdomen or flank (25%), weight loss (33%), fever (20%), high blood pressure (20%), night sweats and generally feeling unwell. (wikipedia.org)
  • form
  • Keloid scars are a more serious form of excessive scarring, because they can grow indefinitely into large, tumorous (although benign) neoplasms. (wikipedia.org)
  • Total
  • Inflammation ailments of the parotid gland, such as parotid abscesses (collections of pus), deep salivary calculi (mineral deposits), and chronic parotitis (long-term inflammation) may necessitate a total parotidectomy. (wikipedia.org)
  • total parotidectomy - total removal of the deep part of the parotid gland. (wikipedia.org)
  • Note
  • However, there are really only two main distinctions to be made in parotidectomies: The specific nerve(s) to be dissected or not dissected The amount of gland excised It is important to note that the specific surgery chosen is based on preservation of the facial nerve in order to avoid significant morbidities (diseases).
