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

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 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
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

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
