PURPOSE: This research study is collecting samples of blood, bone marrow, tumor tissue, and normal tissue from patients with cancer or a precancerous condition and from participants undergoing surgery or biopsy.
- Acquire blood serum, circulating cells, bone marrow, and tumor or normal tissue samples from patients with cancer or a premalignant condition or participants who are undergoing surgery or biopsy, to be used in future cancer-related research.
OUTLINE: Blood, tissue, and/or tumor samples are collected at baseline and several follow-up visits within 1 year and are stored for future study. No germ-line linkage analysis (familial genetics) will be performed under the auspices of this protocol.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 1,000 patients and participants will be accrued for this study.

A condition or factor associated with a recipient that makes the use of a procedure improper or inadvisable.
A white patch lesion found on a MUCOUS MEMBRANE that cannot be scraped off. Leukoplakia is generally considered a precancerous condition, however its appearance may also result from a variety of HEREDITARY DISEASES.
The analysis of a chemical substance by inserting a sample into a carrier stream of reagent using a sample injection valve that propels the sample downstream where mixing occurs in a coiled tube, then passes into a flow-through detector and a recorder or other data handling device.
A type of scanning probe microscopy in which a very sharp conducting needle is swept just a few angstroms above the surface of a sample. The tiny tunneling current that flows between the sample and the needle tip is measured, and from this are produced three-dimensional topographs. Due to the poor electron conductivity of most biological samples, thin metal coatings are deposited on the sample.
Pathological processes that tend eventually to become malignant. (From Dorland, 27th ed)
Osteoporosis is a disease in which the bones become extremely porous, are subject to fracture, and heal slowly, occurring especially in women following menopause and often leading to curvature of the spine from vertebral collapse. Follow and track&n...
Cancer is not just one disease but many diseases. There are more than 100 different types of cancer. Most cancers are named for the organ or type of cell in which they start - for example, cancer that begins in the colon is called colon cancer; cancer th...
