Do all neoplastic masses, both benign and not, have vascularity of some kind? What ones have moderate vascularity?

Do all neoplastic masses, both benign and not, have vascularity of some kind? What ones have moderate vascularity?

Need more details: Vascularity has to be related to the type of test/imaging method used. In general benign tumors are not supposed to be very vascular, malignant ones commonly are hypervascular. Yet these findings are not totally reliable, so a biopsy is the only way to tell the nature of what we are dealing with. ...Read more

Please interpret chd-cbd and cystic duct stump wall thickening is most probably of neoplastic etiology. Possibility of it being chronic is less likely

Thick-walled ducts: Common hepatic duct, common bile duct. From the description, the radiologist believe this is probably cancer (a cholangiocarcinoma can look like this). Tissue will be obtained to determine whether it is cancer or scarring from the previous gallbladder removal. ...Read more

The other day the doctor just diagnose me with neoplastic etiologies after finding a complex cyts on my right parotid gland what does this means?

Most likely surgery: Most likely you need surgery, simple biopsy is not done on parotid gland unlike other areas, if it is tumor will be left behind will cause more problems, or for fear of facial nerve injury, your doctor may observe or remove entire involved parotid lobe by dissecting away facial nerve, which is safe & relatively low risk procedure. Speak to your doctor. ...Read more

Atypical glandular cells - favor neoplastic was my pap smear test result. Negative colposcopy- & endocervical curretings result. Please explain.

Maybe benign and overcall: It is possible that the cells are reactive and they were over called as worrisome for cancer but in fact are completely normal this would explain the findings. You should have me look at the pap smear I will give you the right answer. ...Read more

Multilobulated pulmonary mass w/calcifications in left upper lobe. Neoplastic disease vs inflammatory/infectious process. Rule out metastatic disease?

Multilobulated pulmonary mass w/calcifications in left upper lobe. Neoplastic disease vs inflammatory/infectious process. Rule out metastatic disease?

In general...: IN GENERAL, a multilobulated mass is more likely malignant, one with calcifications is less likely. As in much else, size matters, with bigger being more worrisome. If you're smoker, more likely malignant, if from place of endemic TB or histoplasmosis, risk of chronic infection rises. You'll need to be evaluated by a pulmonologist, who will very likely recommend biopsy. ...Read more

It sounds: Like you had a breast ultrasound as well. Obviously limited info and incomplete description, but based on those descriptors, it is probably a BIRADS category 3 lesion (98% or greater chance of being benign). Most commonly, a mass with this description is a benign fibroadenoma. ...Read more

Why is Down syndrome more maternally inherited?

Why is Down syndrome more maternally inherited?

It isn't...: Maternally inherited, unless the mother has down's syndrome. Inherited means it's passed from generation to generation. When down's occurs, the egg has two copies of chromosome 21 instead of the usual one copy, so when the egg is fertilized, it ends up with three copies instead of the usual two. This is a new event, not an inheritance. The risk of down's syndrome increases with maternal age. ...Read more

What is the edwards syndrome mode of inheritance?

What is the edwards syndrome mode of inheritance?

Sporadic event: The preparation of an egg for fertilization includes reducing all the chromosomes (22 regular pairs + a sex chm pair) from pairs to singles. The sperm then brings a single 1-22 regular +a sex chromosome. If the egg has a pair of 18 chms, then when the sperm adds the single 18 there is 3, this creates the chms imbalance in every skin cell of the fetus & results in the defects of edward syndrome. ...Read more

Please tell me if angelman syndrome is inherited or a disorder?

Please tell me if angelman syndrome is inherited or a disorder?

Sometimes: Some cases are due to a mutation carried by the mother. Most are due to spontaneous mutations or epigenetic events in the fertilized egg. So, the risk of Angelman may be inherited, but the disease may be genetic or due to epigenetic factors. It is one of the most complex genetic mechanisms yet discovered, and a clinical geneticist must analyze whether other family members are at up to 50% risk ...Read more
