What is low grade squamous intraepithelial lesion of vagina?

Abnormal cells: The cervical cells do not just become a cancer. The cells first become a little abnormal (lgsil) then can progress to a more significant level - i.e. High grade squamous intraepithelial lesion. 85% of lgsil does not result in a cervical cancer - about 50% will progress to a cancer. ...Read more

High grade osseous neural foraminal stenosis with cervical spondylosis mean?

What causes low grade liposarcoma to upgrade to high grade liposarcoma?

What causes low grade liposarcoma to upgrade to high grade liposarcoma?

Hard to say: There are situations when a pathologist reviews the specimen again and finds higher grade "angrier" looking cells in the specimen - leading to an upgrade. There are also situations when a liposarcoma recurs and the new tumor has "de-differentiated" or evolved into an angrier tumor. This can happen with time with certain aggressive liposarcomas. ...Read more

What does low grade adenomatous dysplasia and minor architectural distortion mean after a colonoscopy.

Dysplasia is a term that describes how much your polyp looks like cancer under the microscope.: Dysplasia is a term that describes how much your polyp looks like cancer under the microscope. Polyps that are only mildly abnormal (don’t look much like cancer) are said to have low-grade (mild or moderate) dysplasia. Polyps that are more abnormal and look more like cancer are said to have high-grade (severe) dysplasia. The most important thing is that your polyp has been completely removed and does not show cancer. If dysplasia is found in your polyp, it might mean you need to have a repeat (follow-up) colonoscopy sooner than if dysplasia wasn’t found, but otherwise you do not need to worry about dysplasia in your polyp. ...Read more
