Metastases of ductal carcinoma of the breast in the esophagus. Case report

Invasive breast cancer is the most common carcinoma in women, 23% of all cancers in the world. It is classified according to its histological pattern and expression of immunohistochemical markers; 75%...

Breast Metastasis as a Presentation of Malignant Melanoma.

The majority of malignant breast lesions are primary tumors originated from breast tissue. These primary breast cancers usually metastasize to lymph nodes, lungs, bones and brain. Metastases from canc...

Co-expression network analysis of gene expression profiles of HER2 breast cancer-associated brain metastasis.

Brain metastasis occurs in ~30% of patients with breast cancer, and patients with human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2) breast cancer have a particularly high frequency of brain metastasis. ...

Follicular thyroid carcinoma metastatic to skin: a small papule and a big diagnostic change.

Cutaneous metastases are uncommon in daily practice, although very important, since they may be the first manifestation of an undiscovered primary neoplasm or the first indication of recurrence. Cutan...

Metastatic breast cancer to the adductor magnus; a case report and literature overview.

Metastatic breast cancer is commonly found in the pectoralis major and minor muscles, ribs, spine, pelvis, long bones of the extremities, liver, lung, and the brain. It is unusual to see breast cancer...

Breast Cancer With Over-expression of erbB2-BRAINSTORM

This retrospective cohort study aims to improve our understanding of the current paradigm for treatment of brain metastases in erbB2+ breast cancer patients in the Asia Pacific region. We ...

Brain Monitoring for High Risk of Brain Metastases in Metastatic Breast Cancer

In general, brain metastases found after development of neurologic symptoms have poor prognosis. Therefore, the investigators aim to investigate whether regular brain MRI (Magnetic Resonan...

GRN1005 for Brain Metastases From Breast or Lung Cancer

Background: - Brain metastases are cancer cells that have spread to the brain from primary cancers in other organs. These tumors can be removed surgically. However, researchers are trying...

Lapatinib in Treating Brain Metastases in Patients With Stage IV Breast Cancer and Brain Metastases

RATIONALE: Lapatinib may stop the growth of tumor cells by blocking some of the enzymes needed for their growth. PURPOSE: This phase II trial is studying how well lapatinib works in treat...

Dendritic Cell Therapy for Brain Metastases From Breast- or Lung Cancer

The study will use an Ommaya reservoir that drains into brain metastases to deliver activated, autolous dendritic cells to the tumor lesion, for patients who are 18 - 75 years old who have...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A condition in which abnormal cells have not spread outside the duct, lobule, or nipple to other tissues of the breast. There are 3 types of breast carcinoma in situ: DUCTAL CARCINOMA IN SITU; LOBULAR CARCINOMA IN SITU; and PAGET DISEASE OF THE NIPPLE

Neoplasms, usually carcinoma, located within the center of an organ or within small lobes, and in the case of the breast, intraductally. The emphasis of the name is on the location of the neoplastic tissue rather than on its histological type. Most cancers of this type are located in the breast.

An invasive (infiltrating) CARCINOMA of the mammary ductal system (MAMMARY GLANDS) in the human 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)

Primary or metastatic neoplasms of the CEREBELLUM. Tumors in this location frequently present with ATAXIA or signs of INTRACRANIAL HYPERTENSION due to obstruction of the fourth ventricle. Common primary cerebellar tumors include fibrillary ASTROCYTOMA and cerebellar HEMANGIOBLASTOMA. The cerebellum is a relatively common site for tumor metastases from the lung, breast, and other distant organs. (From Okazaki & Scheithauer, Atlas of Neuropathology, 1988, p86 and p141)
