The American Joint Commission on Cancer, the European Neuroendocrine Tumor Society, and the North American Neuroendocrine Tumor Society all classify colon neuroendocrine tumor (NET) nodal metastasis as N0 or N1. This binary classification does not allow for further prognostication by the total number of positive lymph nodes. This study aimed to evaluate whether the total number of positive lymph nodes affects the overall survival for patients with colon NET.

Surgical indications for rectal neuroendocrine tumors with potential lymph node metastasis remain controversial. Although accurate preoperative diagnosis of nodal status may be helpful for treatment s...
Current guidelines of the American Joint Commission on Cancer (AJCC) for rectal neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) classify tumor nodal status as N0/N1. This staging does not take into consideration the num...
The favorable oncological impact of D3 lymph node dissection after colon cancer surgery has been described previously. However, D3 lymph node dissection is potentially more invasive than conventional ...
The Tumor Lymph Node and Metastasis (TNM) classification for lung cancer, originally designed for non-small cell lung carcinoma, is applied to staging of bronchopulmonary carcinoid tumors. The validit...
Preoperative factors that reliably predict lymph node (LN) metastases in pancreatic neuroendocrine tumors (PanNETs) are unclear. The number of LNs needed to accurately stage PanNETs has not been defin...
It is still unclear if Lymph Node Yield (LNY) and Lymph Node Ratio (LNR) may have a prognostic role in patients affected by carcinoma of the head and neck. Only retrospective studies are a...
Comparing different method of surgical technique D2 lymph node dissection vs D3 for right colon cancer.
The purpose of this study is to determine wether D3 lymph node dissection gives superior oncological outcomes compared to standard D2 lymph node dissection in colon cancer
Axillary lymph node status is an important prognostic factor for patients with breast cancer. After breast cancer diagnosis, current nodal staging consists of axillary ultrasound (US) comb...
It is very significant that assessing TN staging in esophageal cancer patients before surgery, furthermore, determining the optimize surgical strategy, predict the the efficacy of radiothe...
First lymph node to receive drainage from the primary tumor. SENTINEL LYMPH NODE BIOPSY is performed to determine early METASTASIS status because cancer cells may appear first in the sentinel node.
A diagnostic procedure used to determine whether LYMPHATIC METASTASIS has occurred. The sentinel lymph node is the first lymph node to receive drainage from a neoplasm.
Tumors whose cells possess secretory granules and originate from the neuroectoderm, i.e., the cells of the ectoblast or epiblast that program the neuroendocrine system. Common properties across most neuroendocrine tumors include ectopic hormone production (often via APUD CELLS), the presence of tumor-associated antigens, and isozyme composition.
Malignant lymphoma in which the lymphomatous cells are clustered into identifiable nodules within the LYMPH NODES. The nodules resemble to some extent the GERMINAL CENTER of lymph node follicles and most likely represent neoplastic proliferation of lymph node-derived follicular center B-LYMPHOCYTES.
The local lymph node assay (LLNA) is an alternative method for the identification of chemicals that have the ability to cause skin sensitization and allergic contact dermatitis. Endpoints have been established so fewer animals are required and less painful procedures are used.
