Superficial fragments of oesophagel mucosa lined by stratified squamous epithelium showing mild acanthosis and papillomatosis. Please explain?

Superficial fragments of oesophagel mucosa lined by stratified squamous epithelium showing mild acanthosis and papillomatosis. Please explain?

Fancy med talk: I just looked up in a medical dictionary: acanthosis means a thickening of a layer of the mucosa of the esophagus. This can be seen with chronic inflammation (like with reflux disease). The word papillomatosis refers to papilla or projection of tissue sticking out. This can occur if there is chronic injury to the tissue and regeneration. Please ask your GI doctor to take the time to review this. ...Read more

Large detached squamous epithelium in bone marrow biopsy. What does that mean?

Large detached squamous epithelium in bone marrow biopsy. What does that mean?

Large chunk of skin: A chunk of skin must have been sent along with the bone fragment from the biopsy. Squamous epithelium is the skin cell type found in the outer layer of skin (& on contiguous surfaces like the inside of your mouth). It looks distinct under the microscope. In some cases, squamous cell cancer can invade the bone marrow, but I doubt that it is your case because the cells were detached, not mixed in. ...Read more

I was Diagnosed with Severe Dysplasia (CIN3)involving ectocervical squamous mucosa and fragments of benign endocervical glandular epithelium.?

Cervical Cancer: CIN3 is a high risk precursor to cervical cancer and needs to be treated and followed up. Local procedures like LEEP or cone biopsy are important to exclude possible occult invasion. Follow-up following those with visual exam, pap and HPV testing to exclude recurrence or residual are vital. Visual exam to exclude HPV disease of vagina or vulva are also important. ...Read more

Oral Biopsy: The best answer that you can get should be answered by the doctor who requested that a biopsy be taken. He should have received a report from the laboratory that evaluated the cells and established the diagnosis. Rather than speculate, contact that doctor as soon as you can to ease your mind and know what to do next. ...Read more

Explain what sections reveal a benign cyst lined by a cuboidal epithelium, it thrown into papillary fronds. Appearance is serous papillary cystadenoma?

Benign cyst: These are the pathologist's descriptions of what the tissue looks like under the microscope. The details don't matter as much as the bottom line: it's a benign cyst, ie, not cancer. It would be helpful to know what part of the body the tissue was taken from. ...Read more

Ask yiour Gynecologi: The doctor who did the test can explain it better. But basically the test is looking for cancer cells which your report says you do not have at the present time.
