Pre Cancer Cells In The Uterus
Would introducing mutated cells right next to cancer cells reverse the production of cancer cells?
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
During endometrial cancer surgery, atypical cells were found in the peritoneal fluid. What does this mean.
Since cancer cells induce cell signaling to increase growth factors in early stages, can that region of cancer be contained and aspirated to survive?
Lymph nodes: Endometrial cancer typically spreads first by invading the muscle wall of the uterus, and then spreading through the lymph system to the nearby lymph nodes in the pelvis. Spread outside the uterus is relatively rare in most forms of endometrial cancer. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Not sure how you: Would know this, but think about it: cancer cells need to gain access to a source of energy, and a means to rid itself of waste. The "angiogenesis" aspect of tumors postulated by judah folkman, is largely true. Cancer is made up of cells that is mostly exactly like "us" with some deviations. ...Read more
If a cancer tumor is in the body is it packed with positive cancer cells? Can the same sized tumor later show decreased + cancer cells after chemo?
Does rai normally eradicate the cancer cells in metastatic sites of papillary thyroid carcinoma? Or does it only reduce the tumors in these sites?
Eradicate: Rai can eradicate thyroid cancer cells from distant sites such as the lung or bone. It may not be completely effective with everyone, however, as some tumor cells at these distant sites have lost the ability to take up the iodine like normal thyroid cells can. In such cases, repeat and/or higher doses may be required. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can the mitosis of cancer cells be stopped by inserting the appropriate signal molecule into cells?
Hopefully: This is one of the ideas behind targeted therapy. One of the first successful approaches has been in chronic myelogenous leukemia where the abnormal protein that causes cell division at an enhanced rate is blocked by a designer molecule. This has resulted in long term remissions and preference for this approach over the prior gold standard of allogeneic bone marrow transplantation. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can you tell me about the incidence of liver tumor cancer cells and some cells traveling thru the bloodstream when there is early stage cancer?
Unclear Question!: Please give background of why you ahve this question and then ask a simple questions so that we can explain and simplify your query ...Read more
Most cancers: Most cancers arise from somatic cells. The change involves a number of steps, though one of the steps may be an inherited defect/mutation. Cells acquire mutations and the ones providing a survival/growth advantage induce proliferation that leads to more mutations. A fully developed cancer has, on average, about 90 mutations. ...Read more
Does the surgical removal of a cancerous tumor necessarily result in cancer cells to be spread to other parts of the body via the bloodstream?
Cancer treatment: No. If the neoplasm is thought to be limited and amenable to excision or complete removal, then it is the treatment of choice. Adjuvant chemo and/or radiation are used to kill residual microscopic local or distant metastatic disease. It is not a good idea to just debulk the malignancy. The goal is to excise or remove entirely all gross disease. What "spills" in blood stream is insignificant. ...Read more
