Glandular abnormalities are usually not visible with a magnifying lens at colposcopy, and so biopsies are needed to rule out cancers. Glandular cancers are related to HPV usually like the squamous ones, so HPV testing can also help. ...Read more

Many factors.: There are many factors/regulators that induce apoptosis in cancer and normal cells. These are defective or turned off in cancer cells. For example, the x-linked inhibitor of apoptosis protein (xiap) is overexpressed in cancer cells. Xiaps bind to caspase-9, and suppress apoptotic activator cytochrom c, allowing the damaged cells to live. Deactivation of p53 apoptotic protein is another example. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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
Leukemias: Acute leukemias are those with large numbers of immature cells that grow quickly. They can be either myeloid or lymphoid in lineage. Chronic leukemias have more mature cells, a longer course, but can also be myeloid or lymphoid. A hematologist/oncologist is generally the treating physician, and a hematopathologist is the one who give the specific syping. ...Read more
