Isolated pancreatic metastasis from lung cancer is rare. We present a case of isolated pancreatic metastasis from squamous cell lung cancer. The pancreatic tumor showed hypovascularity on enhanced MRI and intense FDG uptake on FDG PET/CT mimicking primary pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma. This case indicates pancreatic metastasis should be considered as a differential diagnosis in patients with a history of extrapancreatic cancer and hypermetabolic pancreatic lesion.

The prognosis for nonmetastatic, primary pancreatic squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) is thought to be poor compared with adenocarcinoma (AC); however, this is based on limited data. Additionally, the opt...
Nearly 50% of primary lung carcinoma patients present with distant metastasis at their first visit. However, gastrointestinal tract (GIT) metastasis is an infrequent impediment. Herein, we report a ca...
A 71-year-old woman presented to a nearby hospital with an occipital scalp ulcer with exudate. Thoracoabdominal enhanced computed tomography (CT) was performed due to suspected cancer. The imaging res...
Accumulating evidences indicate that long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) play key roles in cancer. This study aims to clarify role of the metastasis-associated lung adenocarcinoma transcript 1 (MALAT1) in ...
Pancreatic cancer is highly metastatic with very short survival and increasing mortality rates. Recent advances in therapeutic regimes and other adjuvant therapies improved slightly overall survival o...
Pancreatic cancer is the 5th leading cause of cancer death and the worst prognostic cancer in the world. This is due to high recurrent rate after surgical resection and poor response to ch...
This phase II trial studies how well anti-B7H1 monoclonal antibody MEDI4736 (MEDI4736) works in treating patients with stage IV squamous cell lung cancer that has come back after previous ...
Pancreatic metastases are a rare entity. In cases of metastatic renal carcinoma (RCC) it can present as isolated pancreatic metastasis, considering the possibility of surgical resection. ...
This randomized phase III trial compares nivolumab with ipilimumab and nivolumab alone in treating patients with stage IV squamous cell lung cancer that has come back after previous treatm...
This study will assess the efficacy and safety of Avastin combined with first line paclitaxel-carboplatin (cohort 1) or second line Tarceva (cohort 2) in patients with non-squamous non-sma...
A heterogeneous aggregate of at least three distinct histological types of lung cancer, including SQUAMOUS CELL CARCINOMA; ADENOCARCINOMA; and LARGE CELL CARCINOMA. They are dealt with collectively because of their shared treatment strategy.
Morphological abnormalities of the cervical EPITHELIUM, usually revealed in PAP SMEAR, which do not meet the criteria for squamous CERVICAL INTRAEPITHELIAL NEOPLASIA or SQUAMOUS CELL CARCINOMAS of the CERVIX . It may be a sign of infection with certain types of human papillomavirus (HPV).or sign of a benign (not cancer) growth, such as a cyst or polyp or, in menopausal women, of low hormone levels. More testing, such as HPV test, may be needed.
Malignant neoplasm arising from the epithelium of the BRONCHI. It represents a large group of epithelial lung malignancies which can be divided into two clinical groups: SMALL CELL LUNG CANCER and NON-SMALL-CELL LUNG CARCINOMA.
A form of highly malignant lung cancer that is composed of small ovoid cells (SMALL CELL CARCINOMA).
Ubiquitous macromolecules associated with the cell surface and extracellular matrix of a wide range of cells of vertebrate and invertebrate tissues. They are essential cofactors in cell-matrix adhesion processes, in cell-cell recognition systems, and in receptor-growth factor interactions.

Pancreatitis Acute pancreatitis is inflammation of the pancreas caused by the release of activated pancreatic enzymes. Common triggers are biliary tract disease and chronic heavy alcohol intake. Diagnosis is based on clinical presentation...
Lung cancer is the uncontrolled cell growth in tissues of the lung. Originating in the lungs, this growth may invade adjacent tissues and infiltrate beyond the lungs. Lung cancer, the most common cause of cancer-related death in men and women, is respons...
