Adenocarcinoma With Neuroendocrine Differentiation
Are carcinoid tumors carcinoma? Is malignant metastatic stomach carcinoma that's hereditary a carcinoid cancer? carcinoid Neuroendocrine tumors?
Nothing: Even in the lung, squamous cell carcinomas are usually silent until they have become large enough to cause coughing up of blood -- one of the common ways in which it announces itself. On the skin, of course, a growing mass with a rough surface is (depending on how it looks) likely to be a squamous skin cancer; these are usually easy to cure. Good luck. ...Read more
Colon biopsy:huge tubulovillous adenoma with marked atypia, multi foci adenocarcinoma in situ &one tiny focus suggestive of micro invasion.Is it cancer?
Viral insertion: DCIS is the earliest phase of transformation to malignancy developing in the ductal system before invasion into parenchyma has occurred. It is defined on mammo by clustered microcalcification. In general the long terminal repeat of the MMTV viral genome enters the ductal cell to initiate transformation. with time the cells become aggressive and invade basement membrane helped by the EBV virus ...Read more
What does each word/phrase mean?Infiltrating, well differentiated adenocarcinoma; carcinoma focally invades superficial submucosa;no lymphovascular invasion?Is surgery advised for this type of report?
Genetic component?: There could be genetic component to a squamous cell cancer, although the exact implications on treatment aren't known. Obviously if there is a strong family history of cancers, or if it strikes someone who is young and/or a non smoker/drinker i would suspect a strong genetic contribution. Without more details, it is hard to say with any certainty. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Prognosis: Unfortunately to present with a new lung cancer with brain metastasis generally carries a poor prognosis with median survival generally measured in few months. Survival prediction is always difficult and has a lot to do with 'performance status', ie how well a patient is carrying on with activities of daily living. Specific cell type, size of tumor, extent of metastasis in brain and elsewhere. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Very malignnt.: This is a kind of squamous cancer that is poorly organized, or has no resemblance to what squamous lining should look like. It follows that this is a very serious cancer that must be treated very aggressively for any chance of a favorable outcome. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Invasive non keratinizing squamous cell carcinoma tongue showing nests of malignant squamous cells grade 3 prognosis?
Can be cured: If no nodes palpable and lesion localized, RT chemo can reduce size and position site for curative resection. Partial glossectomy after initial therapy. If larger and not responsive to chemo, Ive used hight dose MTX with citrovorum factor over 12 hrs. Most effective in presence of nodal disease Basic chemo is Platinum/Taxol + RT ...Read more
Unfortunate: This is usually an unfortunate situation. The most common primary site will be somewhere in the intestinal tract, like the stomach. The pathologists will try many stains on the tissue to help define the origin. This helps with choosing the most appropriate chemotherapy. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Subtype of colon Ca: Mucin producing metastatic adenoca of the colon is derived from a primary adenoCa of colon producing large amounts of extracelluar mucin with greater than a 50% mucinous component.. The proximal colon and appendix represents 10-20% of these colorectal neoplasms . The rt. colon is the usual source for most of these lesions presenting with more advanced forms of disease than other colonic sites. ...Read more
Colon surgery:tumor size=2cm.Pathologic staging(pt3, n1b, mx).2/17 lymph nodes show metastatic.Margins of resection free of carcinoma.Need chemotherapy?
Yes: Chemotherapy regimens based on the drug Fluorouracil (5-fu) have been part of the treatment for high-risk stage ii or stage iii colon cancer. Many clinical trials have shown that these regimens improve overall survival primarily by reducing the high risk of recurrence within the first two years after surgery. ...Read more
Good question: And difficult to tell sometimes. The most straightforward way to put it is that a benign neoplasm will never turn into an invasive malignancy within your lifetime. Cis will eventually turn into one. But, because we don't live forever, cis might not turn into a malignancy during one's lifetime anyway. Pathologists can usually, but not always, tell the difference by microscopic cell exam. ...Read more
Hepatocellular carcinoma.All spleen and partial liver resection.Later,secondary systemic cancer metastasis.any targeted therapy or immunotherapy?
Yes, for both: Hepatocellular Carcinoma is commonly treated with Sorafenib which is a type of targeted therapy. This is a good choice of treatment in case you have not yet received this drug. Immunotherapy using PD-1 inhibitors has also shown some modest evidence of benefit although it is not yet FDA approved for this indication. Ask your oncologist to guide your treatment further. ...Read more
It is cancer: Adenocarcinoma is a cancer that originates from glandular epithelial cells. This is usually classified as poorly, moderately or well differentiated based on the resemblance of these cells to normal epithelium with the well-differentiated cells being most similar in appearance to the normal cells. The poorer the differentiation, the more aggressive and poorer prognosis. ...Read more
Yes: endometrial cancer which begins in the endometrial mucosa, before invading myometrium or muscle of uterus is virtually 100% cureable. Even if D&C shows tumor cells spreading to blood stream this is not metastasis but cells pushed by curettage into the blood. Even early muscle invasion followed by hysterectomy with node diss. can be cured. ...Read more

My husband was diagnosed with invasive moderately differentiated pulmonary adenocarcinoma. What is the course of treatment?
Your oncologist is t: Your oncologist should guide you in the decisions towards treatment. Cancer treatments are dictated by the stage of disease. So you need to know what stage of lung cancer he has. For early stages, surgery can be the best option but as it goes from stage 1 to 3, chemotherapy and radiotherapy are used in combination. For stage 4 it is mostly chemotherapy which is most useful. ...Read more

Your overall condition? Etc. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Crizonitib for alk and tarceva (erlotinib) for egfr and new agent recently to the market. These new finding have improved the prognosis. Other factors do enter in. Age, ps, smoking history if any, wt. Loss, etc. ...Read more

Biopsy: "sigmoid colon, well differentiated adenocarcinoma, grade i" does this indicate that the tumor won't probably metastasize? Triphasic CT shows a lesion in the liver (1cm) as well.
It varies: It depends on their organ of origin. Adenocarcinoma of breast is much different than one arising in the colon or in the lung. Sometimes we can not find their primary origin...So called adenocarcinoma of unknown primary(acup) which has once of the worst outcomes and it causes serious trouble in 4-6 months.
