Is this normal with retained placental parts. "two biopsy samples showed placental site nodules with intermed. Trophoblastic cells showing sig atypia"?

Is this normal with retained placental parts. "two biopsy samples showed placental site nodules with intermed. Trophoblastic cells showing sig atypia"?

Need specialist: This is a very concerning and confusing pathology report. It sounds like a problem called 'gestational trophoblastic disease' is a possibility and you need referral to a gynecologic oncologist. While this starts as a local problem in the uterus, if not addressed and treated, it can turn into cancer. Please get expert help! ...Read more

Know any survivors that had placental site trophoblastic tumor that had EMACO but now suffers with severe constant all over body pain years later?

Know any survivors that had placental site trophoblastic tumor that had EMACO but now suffers with severe constant all over body pain years later?

PSTT: This type of tumor is rare. Finding someone else with your exact problem is not likely. The chemotherapy regimen you had is the one commonly used for placental cancers/tumors. One of the meds may have caused nerve damage. Your pain might be due to this. OTOH, your problem might be completely unrelated. I would recommend consultation with a medical oncologist who would be familiar with these probs. ...Read more

It can be cured: New guidelines have urged yearly low level ct scans to be done in smokers and smokers that have quit within the last several years. This will hopefully pick up early cancers that can be surgically cured. ...Read more

Severe HPV (plantars), sarcoidosis w/ atypical lung nodules 8mm with suv of 10.9 what are chances of cancer? No lung bx done other site pos for sarc

Hard to say: Do you have significant risk for lung cancer? Are you a smoker? If yes, you need to stop smoking . The lung nodule is likely sarcoidosis of the lung although if you are also a heavy smoker, lung cancer is possible. I will suggest you to have a follow up ct scan to ensure stability if it is rapidly growing, while your sarcoidosis is quite without symptom perhaps biopsy can be considered then. ...Read more

Lesion on mammogram. Nodule on xray. Clear ct. Swollen lnodes. Likely cancer? Lump w/o mobility nor pain. Pain @ site of nodule. Biopsy? Smoker 20 yr

Hard to tell: whether these findings are related or not. All need to be evaluated. Is the mammo lesion the same as the lump? What is the radiologist's recommendation? Is there a lung nodule? Speak with your doctor about all of these results, and the next steps. ...Read more

Perirectal abscess?: You need to have a doctor examine the skin area and treat this appropriately. An abscess is a chronic skin infection that will not improve unless opened with an incision surgically, drained of pus, and treated with antibiotics. A perirectal abscess can be serious if left untreated, may spread and cause septicemia- please have your GP evaluate the area and decide on next steps, immediately ...Read more
