Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
A synthetic retinoid that is used orally as a chemopreventive against prostate cancer and in women at risk of developing contralateral breast cancer. It is also effective as an antineoplastic agent.
Hamartoma Syndrome, Multiple
A hereditary disease characterized by multiple ectodermal, mesodermal, and endodermal nevoid and neoplastic anomalies. Facial trichilemmomas and papillomatous papules of the oral mucosa are the most characteristic lesions. Individuals with this syndrome have a high risk of BREAST CANCER; THYROID CANCER; and ENDOMETRIAL CANCER. This syndrome is associated with mutations in the gene for PTEN PHOSPHATASE.
Inflammatory Breast Neoplasms
Metastatic breast cancer characterized by EDEMA and ERYTHEMA of the affected breast due to LYMPHATIC METASTASIS and eventual obstruction of LYMPHATIC VESSELS by the cancer cells.
Use of ultrasound for imaging the breast. The most frequent application is the diagnosis of neoplasms of the female breast.
A infiltrating (invasive) breast cancer, relatively uncommon, accounting for only 5%-10% of breast tumors in most series. It is often an area of ill-defined thickening in the breast, in contrast to the dominant lump characteristic of ductal carcinoma. It is typically composed of small cells in a linear arrangement with a tendency to grow around ducts and lobules. There is likelihood of axillary nodal involvement with metastasis to meningeal and serosal surfaces. (DeVita Jr et al., Cancer: Principles & Practice of Oncology, 3d ed, p1205)
Background and Objectives: Despite its relatively low incidence in Saudi Arabia, breast cancer has been the most common cancer among Saudi females for the past 12 consecutive years. The objective of t...
BACKGROUND: Guidelines from the American Cancer Society recommend annual breast magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) screening for women with a projected lifetime risk of ≥20% based on risk models that...
About one in 300 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer before the age of 40. Advances in screening have not had an impact on mortality in women who are too young to be candidates for screening. R...
RATIONALE: Screening tests may help doctors detect cancer cells early and plan more effective treatment for breast cancer. Diagnostic procedures such as MRI may improve the ability to dete...
RATIONALE: Screening tests may help doctors detect cancer cells early and plan more effective treatment for breast and ovarian cancer. PURPOSE: Study to determine how screening at differe...
RATIONALE: Screening tests such as ultrasound and mammography may help doctors detect cancer cells early and plan more effective treatment for breast cancer. It is not yet known whether ul...
RATIONALE: Studying mammograms for breast density changes over time may help doctors predict breast cancer risk. PURPOSE: This natural history study is looking at changes in breast densit...
RATIONALE: Imaging procedures, such as MRI and PET scans, may improve the ability to detect cancer in women who have a genetic risk for breast cancer. PURPOSE: Screening study of MRI and...
