Soft Tissue Sarcoma With Metastasis To Lung
What is the prognosis with stage 4 scc skin cancer with mets to lung bone brain and the cancer originated in the leg?
Deoxygenated blood enters the lungs from the right side of the heart and travels to the lungs. When you inspire, oxygen flows into the lungs, transverses the capilliares and attaches to hemoglobin down a gradient. At the same time, co2 diffuses into the capilaries and is expelled with exhalation. Oxygen rich blood then flows to the left side of the heart and into the ...Read more
Variable: Most patients with soft tissue sarcomas can be cured and have a normal life span. Even in cases where sarcoma had spread, cure can sometimes be achieved. In cases where it cannot be cured, patients may live from weeks to years. It depends on the sarcoma type and the patient. Nobody can predict survival of any one patient. We only know statistics for large groups. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Does mets to lymphnode next to hepatic artery mean the cancer has spread via blood? Is mets to perilymphonodal adipose tissue = mets to peritoneum?
Well...: Metastasis through blood stream usually denotes distant organs.. Lymph node involvement is spread through lymphatics... Often both go together. Perilymphnodal adipose tissue has nothing to do with perineum. Peilymphnodal means "around the lymph node" Keep the faith. lots of cancers are curable these days... ...Read more
Mesothelioma biopsy says 'portions of fibrous tissue infiltrated by malignant cells forming nests. tumor cells +'ve for CK7 and calretinin. prognosis?
Marker not prognosis: CK7 and calretinin are used to verify that the tumor is mesothelial in origin (versus adenocarcinoma of the lung). It does not provide information about prognosis. Factors associated with pleural mesothelioma prognosis include: functional status, blood counts, histology (epithelial best vs fibrosarcomatous poorest), and tumor size (degree of involvement of pleural cavity). Several new trials. ...Read more

3.3cm soft tissue dens ant/sup mediastinum likely residual or reactive thymus tissue? Does ur need biopsy?
Could be either: The thymus tends to involute in adults and often is just a small vestige of an organ. It can however become active under certain circumstances. The most concerning issue would be a thymoma or tumor of the thymus gland. That is often seen in neurological conditions like myasthenia gravis. I would be curious to know how/why this was found. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes: Fibromatosis, while it doesn't have "sarcoma"in the name is actually a low-grade sarcoma. However, this only applies to cases occurring in the abdomen. Less commonly, these tumors can occur on the extremity. Cases of Palmar and Plantar fibromatosis are not aggressive and generally behave in a benign fashion. Have your sarcoma pathology checked by an expert [email protected] ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can stage 1a endometrial cancer (removed) spread to mediastinal, bilateral hilar and virchow's node w/o infiltrating another organ?
Yes but: It could possibly spread to local lymph node but the chances are very low. The lymph nodes that are in thoracic cavity are even less likely to contain metastatic tumor from a stage 1a endometrial cancer, especially if it's a garden variety low grade lesion. In fact, long term survival is very good, like 95%. The other 5% may represent very high grade tumors. ...Read more

My breast biopsyshows fragmants of breast tissue with fibrotic stroma,some dilated ducts and inflammatory cells infltration.does it refers to cancer?
Unfortunate: This is usually an unfortunate situation. The most common primary site will be somewhere in the intestinal tract, like the stomach. The pathologists will try many stains on the tissue to help define the origin. This helps with choosing the most appropriate chemotherapy. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Would small cell lung cancer in a mediastinal lymph node be classed as cancer of unknown primary if lung was clear on imaging.
SCLC arises next: to the bronchi and may not be visible on CT imaging in spite of the fact that it has already spread to a lymph node. Very rarely this same type of tumor arises in the prostate, cervix or gastrointestinal tract. Perhaps a sophisticated imaging technique such as PET scanning could detect the primary tumor in the lung, though knowing the type of tumor already can guide their treatment effectively. ...Read more
Mom has adenocarcinoma, stage4but not sure of the primary cancer.Has cancer in neck, spine, jaw, liver, lungs, lymph nodes&hips.1round chemo.How long2live?
Yes: A malignant tumor can spread to other places, including bones. This can happen directly; that is, if a tumor is near a bone, it can grow directly into the bone. It can also happen from a distance, if tumor cells get into the blood stream and travel to the bone. The picture shows the different places cancer goes in the body. I hope that answers your question! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
By definition, it is malignant (i.e., being locally invasive and at least theoreticlally capable of metastasizing), and arises from / mimics muscle or connective tissue elements that are not marrow or immune / white cells. The sarcomas are a tremendously varied and troublesome family of tumors, though thankfully less common than carcinomas and the leukemia / ...Read more
The body is composed of tissue that are classically described as beiing derived from three basic embyonic layers known as the endoderm, mesoderm and ectoderm that then differentiate into the structures that compose the body such as skin, soft tissues, bone, muscle, organs, etc. Stem cells are not differentiated and have the potential to ...Read more
