Multicentric Hepatocellular Carcinoma
Genetic component?: There could be genetic component to a squamous cell cancer, although the exact implications on treatment aren't known. Obviously if there is a strong family history of cancers, or if it strikes someone who is young and/or a non smoker/drinker i would suspect a strong genetic contribution. Without more details, it is hard to say with any certainty. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
Stage-Dependent: Breast cancers are staged based upon the size of the cancer, lymph node or distant organ involvement, and unique molecular features of the tumor. Published rates of 5-yr survival (http://www.Cancer.Org/cancer/breastcancer/detailedguide/breast-cancer-survival-by-stage) vary quite a bit based on these variables, between 15%-93%. The type of cancer (ductal, lobular, etc) doesn't impact survival. ...Read more
Invasive non keratinizing squamous cell carcinoma tongue showing nests of malignant squamous cells grade 3 prognosis?
Can be cured: If no nodes palpable and lesion localized, RT chemo can reduce size and position site for curative resection. Partial glossectomy after initial therapy. If larger and not responsive to chemo, Ive used hight dose MTX with citrovorum factor over 12 hrs. Most effective in presence of nodal disease Basic chemo is Platinum/Taxol + RT ...Read more
Nothing: Even in the lung, squamous cell carcinomas are usually silent until they have become large enough to cause coughing up of blood -- one of the common ways in which it announces itself. On the skin, of course, a growing mass with a rough surface is (depending on how it looks) likely to be a squamous skin cancer; these are usually easy to cure. Good luck. ...Read more
Yes: Depending on the stage of the cancer and the response to treatment (surgical or nonsurgical methods), patients can survive hcc. There are also establish methods to predict survival in patients with hcc that develops in the setting of underlying liver disease, like hepatitis. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Not really: Not necessarily. It could appear suddenly and grow rapidly. But then it will reach a certain size then it will stop growing, and then regress weeks to months later. As long as it is contained, localized in the skin- surgical resection will take care of that . However if it has metastasized ( which is not common ) -then it will give you problem. ...Read more
Viral insertion: DCIS is the earliest phase of transformation to malignancy developing in the ductal system before invasion into parenchyma has occurred. It is defined on mammo by clustered microcalcification. In general the long terminal repeat of the MMTV viral genome enters the ductal cell to initiate transformation. with time the cells become aggressive and invade basement membrane helped by the EBV virus ...Read more
Hepatocellular carcinoma.All spleen and partial liver resection.Later,secondary systemic cancer metastasis.any targeted therapy or immunotherapy?
Yes, for both: Hepatocellular Carcinoma is commonly treated with Sorafenib which is a type of targeted therapy. This is a good choice of treatment in case you have not yet received this drug. Immunotherapy using PD-1 inhibitors has also shown some modest evidence of benefit although it is not yet FDA approved for this indication. Ask your oncologist to guide your treatment further. ...Read more
Many organs: The first likely tissue where metastases occurs in invasive ductal cancer is the lymph nodes on the armpit or behind the chest wall. Other organs may include the bones, lungs, liver, brain, adrenal glands, skin, bone marrow, the lining around the lungs or heart or the abdomen. Other parts of the body are less often sites of spread. ...Read more
Father65,biopsy result of nasal polyps- Moderately differentiated infiltrating keratinizing squamous cell carcinoma with areas vasaloid. is it cancer?
There are treatments: The vast majority of neuroendocrine carcinomas in the liver originate in another site. Since the liver disease is the most common contributor to survival, we will often use liver directed therapies to control the liver component of the disease. There is an imaging techinque (ga68) used in europe that is available in certain centers in the us that can help evaluate the ds and response to trtment. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes: It may be curable but you will need and extensive work up and close follow up with your otolaryngology surgeon (ent).

Maintaining your nutrition and mental health during this time would be very important as well. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
