What is meant by "luminal type" cancer or tumor?

Often good prognosis: Molecular biologists can subtype breast cancers in many ways. One classification looks at luminal (phenobarbital) vs. Basaloid cells of origin. Each has specific molecular biology, but luminal (phenobarbital) types tend to have estrogen receptors and basaloid do not. Er+ tumors fare better. The susan g. Komen website explains this well in lay terms. http://ww5.komen.org/breastcancer/subtypesofbreastcancer.html. ...Read more

What is meant by a luminal (phenobarbital) type cancer/tumor?

Subtype of cancer: If you are talking about breast cancer- a luminal (phenobarbital) cancer is a subtype of breast cancer, the name "luminal (phenobarbital)" derives from similarity in expression between these tumors and the luminal (phenobarbital) epithelium of the breast. These are the most common subtypes, make up the majority of er-positive breast cancer, and are characterized by expression of er, pr. ...Read more

Soft plaques at the proximal right coronary artery causing 30% luminal (phenobarbital) stenosis. What does thid mean?

Soft plaques at the proximal right coronary artery causing 30% luminal (phenobarbital) stenosis. What does thid mean?

Plaques: It means you have plaque in your coronary artery not obstructing flow a lot. It means aggressive diet, exercise, not smoking, BP control, lipid control, diabetes control all should be done to minimize progression of the plaque. Aspirin is also a good idea. ...Read more

What does diffuse dilatation of common bile duct & mild dilatation of hepatic ducts mean? Maximal luminal (phenobarbital) diam. of common is 14-15mm. MRI sched. Liver

What does diffuse dilatation of common bile duct & mild dilatation of hepatic ducts mean? Maximal luminal (phenobarbital) diam. of common is 14-15mm. MRI sched. Liver

Dilated bile duct: The bile duct is the duct the drains bile out of the river and into the intestines. Dilated bile duct can be a sign of pancreatic, bile duct, liver,or gallbladder disease. It is an important sign, and it definitely needs to be evaluated until a cause is identified and taken care of. Do not hesitate to get the MRI and follow up with your doctor on the results. Good luck. ...Read more
