Cancer (Definition)

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

Endometrial cells on pap means cancer?

Endometrial cells on pap means cancer?

Generally no.: Endometrial cells can be 'normal' in a pap test depending upon the age of the patient and the time of the menstrual cycle in which the test was performed. If a pap is collected in a premenopausal woman within 10 days of the onset of bleeding / menses, then the endometrial cells are most likely part of uterine shedding. In postmenopausal women, a finding of endometrial cells needs explanation. ...Read more

Histological section shows mainly decidualised endometrial tissue with hyperplastic glandular component

specimen: uterine evacuation?

Hyperplasia: The sample you describe is suggestive of overgrowth of tissue in the uterus due to irregular menstrual cycles. It is seen in women who go for > 6 months without bleeding and suggests overstimulation due to estrogen effect. If left untreated, it could lead to endometrial cancer. Still, it is very slow growing but needs to be monitored. ...Read more

Hysteroscopy 9/13 biopsy all nrml taking progesterone now have 2cm uterine polyp unlikely cancer or no?

Hysteroscopy 9/13 biopsy all nrml taking progesterone now have 2cm uterine polyp unlikely cancer or no?

Unlikely: all endometrial polyps should be sent to a pathologist for after ascertainment of whether or not there is a cancer in the polyp. This is highly unlikely if you are on progesterone, however the risk of cancer does increase with age. My suggestion would be to have the polyps removed. The procedure is low risk, would be happy to discuss further. ...Read more

What do neoplastic lymphoid follicles mean? diangosis rectal ca pt1n0.  Md suspects cervical mets due to cervical polyp/pelvic fluid/pain. Can cancer spread from rectum to cervix w/o lymph nodes involvement?

Unlikely: Cancer of the rectum can spread into cervix but only by local extension which is not the case here. I suspect the polyp in the cervix is unrelated to the rectal ca which is quite early in this case. But it should be removed and examined just to make sure that it is benign. ...Read more
