To investigate whether the additional induction chemotherapy (IC) to concurrent chemoradiotherapy (CCRT) was able to improve overall survival (OS) and disease-free survival (DFS), and to c...
RATIONALE: Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to damage tumor cells. Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. It ...
RATIONALE: Drugs used in chemotherapy use different ways to stop tumor cells from dividing so they stop growing or die. PURPOSE: Phase I/II trial to study the effectiveness of carmustine ...
Intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasm (IPMN) is a cystic pancreatic lesion that is a precursor to invasive pancreatic cancer. Differentiating whether an IPMN lesion is benign or malignan...
This study is planned to detect a dose-efficacy relationship between the chosen dose levels of MC506/1 and the extent and quality of fluorescence in the tumour core in patients with newly ...
The Milan System for Reporting Salivary Gland Cytopathology is a tiered classification scheme that includes 6 diagnostic categories. Neoplasm, which is 1 of the 6 proposed categories, consists of beni...
Proliferating trichilemmal tumours are benign but locally aggressive skin neoplasms arising from hair follicles. Rarely, they can become malignant and must be appropriately managed to prevent recurren...
Biliary mucinous cystic neoplasms are rare parenchymal neoplasms with a considerable malignant potential. Due to a lack of diagnostic imaging criteria, histopathologic evaluation remains the definitiv...
The classification of mucinous neoplasm of the appendix is controversial. Although they lack overtly malignant features, they can be complicated by extra-appendiceal spread leading to pseudomyxoma per...
An otherwise healthy 7-year-old boy was diagnosed with malignant large cell calcifying Sertoli cell tumor (LCCSCT) of the testis. He underwent attempted left partial orchiectomy with conversion to rad...
A malignant neoplasm made up of epithelial cells tending to infiltrate the surrounding tissues and give rise to metastases. It is a histological type of neoplasm but is often wrongly used as a synonym for "cancer." (From Dorland, 27th ed)
Abnormal growths of tissue that follow a previous neoplasm but are not metastases of the latter. The second neoplasm may have the same or different histological type and can occur in the same or different organs as the previous neoplasm but in all cases arises from an independent oncogenic event. The development of the second neoplasm may or may not be related to the treatment for the previous neoplasm since genetic risk or predisposing factors may actually be the cause.
A primary malignant neoplasm of epithelial liver cells. It ranges from a well-differentiated tumor with EPITHELIAL CELLS indistinguishable from normal HEPATOCYTES to a poorly differentiated neoplasm. The cells may be uniform or markedly pleomorphic, or form GIANT CELLS. Several classification schemes have been suggested.
The top portion of the pharynx situated posterior to the nose and superior to the SOFT PALATE. The nasopharynx is the posterior extension of the nasal cavities and has a respiratory function.
A malignant neoplasm derived from cells that are capable of forming melanin, which may occur in the skin of any part of the body, in the eye, or, rarely, in the mucous membranes of the genitalia, anus, oral cavity, or other sites. It occurs mostly in adults and may originate de novo or from a pigmented nevus or malignant lentigo. Melanomas frequently metastasize widely, and the regional lymph nodes, liver, lungs, and brain are likely to be involved. The incidence of malignant skin melanomas is rising rapidly in all parts of the world. (Stedman, 25th ed; from Rook et al., Textbook of Dermatology, 4th ed, p2445)
