What does each word/phrase mean?Infiltrating, well differentiated adenocarcinoma; carcinoma focally invades superficial submucosa;no lymphovascular invasion?Is surgery advised for this type of report?

Sounds like a

Cancer
polyp report, but it would help to know where the biopsy was taken (what organ). Translation: its cancer, it needs to be removed, it is of low risk, but if indeed colon, lymph nodes need to be evaluated. An endoscopic ultrasound may better describe nodes and depth of invasion, particularly if a rectal polyp.

How can Type 1 Inner Ear Decompression Sickness be differentiated from combined Hypothermia, overexertion, and exhaustion? Normal dive, 47ft for 38min with an ascent rate of 58 ft/min. Flooded drysuit in 38f water combined with 200 yd hike uphill with 80

Inner

Inner Ear DCS is an extremely rare form of DCS and is not likely based on your dive profile. It is most commonly seen in deep dives with Heliox mixtures (Edmonds et al, Diving and Subaquatic Medicine, 2002) and may be associated with changes of breathing gas at deep depths as a result of isobaric counterdiffusion (Brubakk and Neuman, Physiology and Medicine of Diving, 2003), neither of which was present in your dive history. Additional history with regard to the onset of symptoms (during the dive, immediately after dive, delayed onset after dive) could help to differentiate IEDCS from other etiologies. It would also be helpful to know whether the symtoms have improved or resolved, and if so, when. Physical examination would provide helpful information in making an accurate diagnosis. IEDCS can be associated with acute sensorineural hearing loss, vertigo and tinnitis (ringing in the ears). Inner ear barotrauma may present with many overlapping symptoms, so direct visualization of the ear drum and hearing tests would be mandatory before a diagnosis of IEDCS can be made. Although I believe that IEDCS is very unlikely in your case, the only way to be sure is to be examined by a qualified physician.

What is the definition or description of: Differentiated?

See below

Intestine
The process by which cells become progressively more specialized; a normal process through which cells mature. This process of specialization for the cell comes at the expense of its breadth of potential. Stem cells can, for example, differentiate into secretory cells in the intestine.

What is adenocarcinoma, moderately differentiated mean?

It is cancer

Adenocarcinoma is a cancer that originates from glandular epithelial cells. This is usually classified as poorly, moderately or well differentiated based on the resemblance of these cells to normal epithelium with the well-differentiated cells being most similar in appearance to the normal cells. The poorer the differentiation, the more aggressive and poorer prognosis.

What is the best treatment for Color differentiation difficulties?

Depends

Teeth_whitener
Tooth whitening is the first non-invasive choice. You can selectively whiten darker teeth if you want. Stay away from the one hour in office whitening as it is the least effective, most expensive, most side effects. And the light used with it has no effect. In my office we also offer internal bleaching if root canal treated teeth. As a last resort porcelain veneers can be done.

Is measles differentiated from other illnesses?

Pattern or test

Koplik_spots
There are blood tests to differentiate the presence of the measles virus & antibodies from other infections. There is also the fall back to pattern of illness. Measles has some distinctive physical findings that differ from other illnesses & a trained observer can often make the diagnosis based on these findings.

How is skin cancer differentiated from other lesions?

Biopsy

Cancer
All skin problems (benign or otherwise) are differentiated ultimately by their appearance under the microscope. Each skin cancer, rash, etc has a different appearance under the microscope. So...if you have a concerning lesion, it will probably need to be biopsied by your MD.

How are diagnoses of Lysosome Storage Disorders differentiated from Congenital Disorders of Glycosylation? References?

Difficult to differe

Open-uri20130120-30181-uddoxp
Lysosome storage disease, Congenital disorders of glycosylation (CDG), Peroxisomal disorders, Smith-Lemli-Opitz are "single-gene disorders, most of which demonstrate autosomal-recessive inheritance. These 4 categories of metabolic diseases involve molecules important in cell membranes and share overlapping clinical presentations". (Avery's Diseases of the Newborn, by W. Taeusch, 2005, p. 258)
