VIN3 = appearance of: Cells under microscope, judged to be most abnormal, "pre-cancerous appearing" yet not clearly cancerous; see: https://www. Google. Com/#q=VIN3. Cancer in situ simply means no other sites (metastasis) of similar cells have been identified/recognized to be present. The 2 key definitions of cancer are: (1) Invading adjacent normal cells &/or (2) also growing in other parts of body (metastasis). ...Read more

Clinical assessment may not always inform you what has transpired as many strokes are clinically silent. ...Read more
What is the likelihood of DIFFERENTIATEZD VIN to progress to cancer? Is differentiated VIN 2 more likely to progress to cancer than undifferentiated?
The process by which cells become progressively more specialized; a normal process through which cells mature. This process of specialization for the cell comes at the expense of its breadth of potential. Stem cells can, for example, differentiate into secretory ...Read more
