Are kidney cancer cells different from breast cancer cells and lung cancer cells?

Are kidney cancer cells different from breast cancer cells and lung cancer cells?

Quite Different: These 3 different cancers are actually quite different. Under the microscope they look different, and the types of mutations they have are also different. As a result, the way the different cancers are treated are also different. Generally speaking for kidney cancer they would use targeted therapies or immunotherapies instead of chemotherapy or hormone therapy. ...Read more

Would introducing mutated cells right next to cancer cells reverse the production of cancer cells?

Would introducing mutated cells right next to cancer cells reverse the production of cancer cells?

It is best to strictly follow your gastroenterologists screenig schedules if you already have had polyps and get regular screeinig colonoscopies done. ...Read more

What induces apoptosis in cancer cells?

What induces apoptosis in cancer cells?

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 more

Which distinguishes cancer cells from the cells of benign neoplasms?

Which distinguishes cancer cells from the cells of benign neoplasms?

Genome destabilized: The key to cancer is that enough mutations have accumulated to render the genome itself unstable. Eventually a clone will acquire the ability to invade and spread. We can pick this up using molecular biology techniques. They also look different, but it takes a pathologist several years to learn to tell all the subtleties. ...Read more

Squamous epithelial urine bacteria 2+ urine moucose 1+ whatdoesitmean?

Urine infection: Your urinalysis shows 25-50 White Blood Cells per High Power Field. The other values are either normal or just a little abnormal. This is very likely a urine infection. Do you have any symptoms? You probably need antibiotics. Try to get a urine culture first. Your primary doctor can prescribe. Consult me on Health Tap if you want to discuss more.

Mesothelioma biopsy says 'portions of fibrous tissue infiltrated by malignant cells forming nests. tumor cells +'ve for CK7 and calretinin. prognosis?

Mesothelioma biopsy says 'portions of fibrous tissue infiltrated by malignant cells forming nests. tumor cells +'ve for CK7 and calretinin. prognosis?

Marker not prognosis: CK7 and calretinin are used to verify that the tumor is mesothelial in origin (versus adenocarcinoma of the lung). It does not provide information about prognosis. Factors associated with pleural mesothelioma prognosis include: functional status, blood counts, histology (epithelial best vs fibrosarcomatous poorest), and tumor size (degree of involvement of pleural cavity). Several new trials. ...Read more

What distinguishes cancer cells from the cells of benign neoplasms?

What distinguishes cancer cells from the cells of benign neoplasms?

Disordered growth: Benign tumors grow locally and do not spread. Under the microscope, the cells look like the gland they are from and they are not invading. Cancer cells have disordered growth, frequently do not look like the originating gland and show invasion. ...Read more
