Warning Signs of Squamous Cell Carcinoma and Prevention of SCC by at Risk Organ Transplant Recipients

2014-08-27 03:13:32 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Using focus group and cognitive interviews with organ transplant recipients, the investigators developed interactive workbooks: a) prevention by sun protection b) early detection by skin self-examination (SSE). The investigators hypothesis is if the patient learns by acquiring skills in a favorable environment, then the patient may reduce their anxiety, enhance self-efficacy and perform self-management by SSE and sun protection. The investigators also evaluate existing internet sources of primary and secondary prevention of skin cancer for organ transplant recipients.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A carcinoma derived from stratified squamous epithelium. It may also occur in sites where glandular or columnar epithelium is normally present. (From Stedman, 25th ed)

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.

A mixed adenocarcinoma and squamous cell or epidermoid carcinoma.

Unusual tumor affecting any site of the body, but most often encountered in the head and neck. Considerable debate has surrounded the histogenesis of this neoplasm; however, it is considered to be a myoblastoma of, usually, a benign nature. It affects women more often than men. When it develops beneath the epidermis or mucous membrane, it can lead to proliferation of the squamous cells and mimic squamous cell carcinoma.

A skin carcinoma that histologically exhibits both basal and squamous elements. (From Dorland, 27th ed)
