Thyroid carcinoma is the common endocrine system malignant neoplasm. At present it has become the malignant neoplasm of fastest growing incidence rate. More than 85% thyroid carcinoma is p...
Up to half of patients with ocular melanoma (also called iris, choroidal or uveal melanoma) develop metastasis. We have found that certain molecular features of the eye tumor can be detect...
This randomized phase II trial studies how well palliative radiation therapy works in reducing pain in patients with cancer that has spread from the original (primary) tumor to the bone (b...
The aim of this study is to compare the activity and safety of Oxaliplatin and S-1 (SOX) and Oxaliplatin and Capecitabine (XELOX) in patients with peritoneal metastasis of colorectal cance...
To investigate the safety and efficacy of intraperitoneal infusion of EpCAM CAR-T cell in advanced gastric cancer with peritoneal metastasis by a prospective nonrandomized controlled trial...
Long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs) play a critical role in the initiation and progression of colorectal cancer (CRC), but little is known about the function of lncRNAs in the colorectal liver metastasis (C...
Metastasis from one tumor into another is known as tumor-to-tumor metastasis. We report a case of a contiguous occurrence of meningioma and brain cancer metastasis.
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...
Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) is one of the most common malignancies worldwide, and metastasis of HCC is the leading cause of poor prognosis. Among all the extrahepatic metastases, lymph node metasta...
The term of "tumor-to-lesion metastasis" is an extension of "tumor-to-tumor metastasis", which is a rare but well-documented phenomenon. Tumor metastasis to the meninges and/or central nervous system ...
The transfer of a neoplasm from one organ or part of the body to another remote from the primary site.
Transfer of a neoplasm from its primary site to lymph nodes or to distant parts of the body by way of the lymphatic system.
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.
Intercellular signaling peptides that were originally characterized by their ability to suppress NEOPLASM METASTASIS. Kisspeptins have since been found to play an important role in the neuroendocrine regulation of REPRODUCTION.
Pain that may be caused by or related to cellular, tissue, and systemic changes that occur during NEOPLASM growth, tissue invasion, and METASTASIS.
