What amount chances of survival of neuroendocrine carcinoma of the cervix?

What amount chances of survival of neuroendocrine carcinoma of the cervix?

It all depends: Survival of this disease depends on a number of factors. The stage of the disease is very important to know. Stage defines the extent of disease. Higher stage means more advanced disease which means a worse prognosis. Neuroendocrine carcinoma is not very common in the cervix. It is a more aggressive cell type than the more common squamous cell carcinoma. ...Read more

Mixed borderline serous & mucinous tumor of both the ovaries with foci of microinvasion and invasive implants in the omentum / should I take chemother?

It depends on...: It depends on the extent of tumor in the peritoneal areas. Is it only in the pelvic area or does it involve upper abdominal peritoneum as well. We need to know the stage and the grade of this tumor. How is the ca125 now and check itx2-3.

What's the chromosome number of infiltrating ductal carcinoma?

Depends on grade: The level of chromosomal aberrations in infiltrating ductal carcinoma is correlated with the grade of the cancer cells.

Endometrium is tubular to elongated endometrial glands, separated by dense stroma, and focal crowding of stroma with areas of hemorrhage, nonsecretory?

Abnormal bleeding: The biopsy you described suggests that you are not having regular cycles and your doctor wanted to confirm that there was not a precancerous condition in your uterus.

You may need to take medications to regulate your cycles to prevent these changes. ...Read more

What are the odds of having adenocarcinoma of the left lung and adenosquamous  carcinoma of the right.  Each is considered a primary cancer?

Not Common: The incidence of having 2 different primary lung cancers diagnosed at the same time is quoted between 2-16% (synchronous multiple primary lung cancers). If they are microscopically different tumors, they likely represent two different primary lung cancers rather than metastatic spread of one or the other. One or both could also be metastatic cancer coming from a different site in the body. ...Read more

He/She may have had assistance with a laparoscope so that he could see what was going on while performing the surgery. He/She may have chosen to cut the uterus in smaller pieces so that it could be delivered safely through the vagina. ...Read more

U/s report said i had a retroverted uterus. Three months later, u/s said it was anteverted and then 6 month later u/s report said retroverted?Why?

May depend on how: Full your bladder was. A full bladder will lift the uterus up. An empty bladder provides room in the anterior pelvis for the uterus to drop into. Also, were both us examinations the same? Transvaginal would have an empty bladder and transabdominal a full bladder. Finally, having stool in the rectum and sigmoid colon would displace the uterus upwards and forward. ...Read more

During my two pregnancies uterus was anterverted. After second child it was retroverted. Now it s anterverted. Is that normal to be changing shape.
