Lipo Carcinoma Cancer
Cancer is a group of diseases that is characterized by uncontrolled cell growth leading to invasion of surrounding tissues that spread to other parts of the body. Cancer can begin anywhere in the body and is usually related to one or more genetic mutations that allow normal cells to become malignant by interfering with internal cellular control mechanisms, such as programmed cell death or by preventing ...Read more

Send us UR? In Engli: Sorry I can not read Spanish. But if you have Invasive ductal carcinoma...that means cancer. If it is not invasive (it is called Ductal carcinoma in situ) that is a pre-cancer. Go see a surgeon and ask for advice for further treatment as you will likely need surgery to remove either one of the two conditions that I have mentioned. ...Read more
Biliary cancer.: While uncommon as far as GI malignancies, cholangiocarcinoma typically carries a poor prognosis. Your sister needs to discuss options with her Oncologist. ...Read more
Subclass: Cancers are tumors driven by destabilized genomes, accumulating mutations and acquiring the ability to invade and spread. If the original cell from which a cancer arose was an epithelium (surface covering or gland), it's called a carcinoma. A majority of cancers fall into this category. ...Read more
Interesting cancer: This is a type of cancer that mostly arises either from the small intestine, pancreas, or lung. They are unusual because some can produce certain hormones which cause symptoms like weight gain or weight loss, or diabetes, or diarrhea depending on which hormone is produced. If caught early, many are curable with surgical removal. The abbreviation is "NET" and another name is a carcinoid tumor. ...Read more
Ductal carcinoma in-situ is the earliest stage of a breast cancer. It is also referred to as dcis or non-invasive breast cancer.
Dcis is when the cancer cells are growing within the breast ducts. At this stage, it is usually not palpable on physical examination. It is usually discovered where there are abnormal microcalcifications seen on a mammogram. ...Read more
Where's the primary?: Neuroendocrine carcinomas tend to be quite aggressive and are often more difficult than the more common cancers arising at the same site. If you can let us know where it arose (cervix, pancreas, some other?), we can help you out. ...Read more
Derivation: Sarcomas arise from supportive tissues of the body. They are found in and derived from muscle, fibrous tissue and fascia, fat, nerve, blood vessel and bone. Spread is to liver and lung. Carcinomas arise from secretory and epithelial membrane spreading first to regional nodes as seen with breast, colon and lung. They respond differently to chemo. ...Read more

Neglected, basal: Cell tumors can be quite invasive, and can eat away at entire portions of the face and skull. They are called "rodent ulcers" when this happens. So, while they are invasive, they do not seem to have the ability to metastasize, i.e., travel to other organs, set up colonies and destroy organ function. ...Read more
No metastasis: Basal cell carcinoma does not spread systemically. It only spreads locally and damages adjacent tissues. Therefor is much less invasive than other type of cancers and if removed early when small, it can completely removed without any change in life expectancy. ...Read more
Hi, I was asked to do rai for my metastatic papillary carcinoma (i had a tt)a year &10 months ago. I never had my rai. Do u think my cancer spread a lot?

Not all invasive: Cancers start in situ, and not all in situ cancers ultimately invade...But a lot do. So, there is no timetable of when that you can rely on. It is reasonable to take care of in situ when you find it, rather than trust an unreliable actor to behave itself the way you might like. ...Read more

No tgab detected after a year of tt and thyroid papillary carcinoma? Does that mean I have no cancer is around?
Is the cancer NUT midline carcinoma always genetically defined, or can an infection cause this rare cancer as well?
Basic biology: All cancers result from accumulated mutations, Steve. By definition, this carcinoma results from a translocation involving NUTM1. Infections that produce a great deal of ongoing cell turnover can encourage the propagation of mutations by "promotion"; this is the only possible etiologic role for infection. I'm wondering why you're asking, Steve. ...Read more
My aunt had ia stage endometrial carcinoma but her cancer was metastatic after surgery? Any suggestions to treat it now? Great appreciate.
Liposuction surgery involves the use of hollow cannulas and suction devices used to remove adipose tissue; should not feel anything when the procedure is performed. Indicated for patients at their long-term stable weight, who present with diet and exercise resistant adipose tissue of localized areas with good quality overlying skin. Not substitute for diet and exercise or ...Read more
