What is small cell carcinoma and why does it matter if it is small, medium, or large?

Usually this: Term refers to a smoking induced lung cancer, and teh cellular architecture is "lymphocyte like" small, filled with 'salt and pepper' nuclei, lacking nucleoli.

Other organs have generally unusual and bad cell types called small cell; the medium and large do not work here. ...Read more

In an adult, what size (in mm or cm) differentiates a small, medium, and large unrepaired atrial septal defect?

In an adult, what size (in mm or cm) differentiates a small, medium, and large unrepaired atrial septal defect?

ASD: These are really arbitrary, subjective terms, but I think of small as less than 8mm, medium as 8-16mm and large as greater than 16mm. However, the bottom line as to whether or not an ASD needs to get closed by catheter-based device or surgery hinges on whether the right side of the heart (right atrium and right ventricle) are enlarged. ...Read more

Is a 1 CM smooth lump in breast considered small, medium, or large?

Is a 1 CM smooth lump in breast considered small, medium, or large?

Small, but plz C Dr.: It is very difficult to distinguish normal "lumpy-bumpy" breast tissue from one that warrants further evaluation. Lumps that "count" tend to be 3-dimensionally round rather than pencil- or pancake-shaped and are harder than normal rubbery breast tissue. When finding a new lump, it is best to see your dr.;it may be wise to get a mammogram, ultrasound, or even a biopsy, depending on their findings. ...Read more

I have small height want big?

I have small height want big?

Height: If you’ve not reached full adulthood, you might still grow a taller. Height is primarily controlled by genetics. Very good nutrition can potentially affect height. Once a person reaches adulthood (age 15-17 in women, and 18-21 in men), there is no way to grow taller. Being short is not necessarily a bad thing. Height does not affect potential in life unless one allows it to reduce self esteem. ...Read more

Small bumps surround by a big hard bump on my butt?

Small bumps surround by a big hard bump on my butt?

Growing?: Hard to say without examining you. Possibilities include fatty tumors (benign), cysts, abscesses? Calcified lesions? Cancer is very rare but not impossible. If it has not changed over many years it is probably benign (not cancer). If it is growing rapidly you should have it seen asap. The "hard" part worries me. See your md. A biopsy will tell you for sure. ...Read more

I have microcephaley but my head CM 52cm what is the age range. Ie how small/ big to child please?

Don't understand???: Not sure how you were diagnosed with "microcephaly" at 33 yrs of age. 52 cm is smaller than "average", but still falls within 2 standard deviations of average (which means it's essentially normal). You also have to correlate it with your adult height to figure out where you fall on the percentile curves. If this doesn't help please try and rephrase your question a little more clearly. ...Read more

Noticed small slightly larger than pin size cuts on numerous places of my body after a 10 minute sunbed, what could this be?
