Men ’ s depression may lower chances for pregnancy in couples, NIH study suggests
Women having trouble getting pregnant sometimes try yoga, meditation or mindfulness, and some research suggests that psychological stress may affect infertility. But what about men: Does their mental state affect a couple's ability to conceive?

Conclusions: Sensitivity of thoracentesis for solid tumors varies significantly depending on the type of tumor and is lowest in those with sarcomas, head and neck malignancies, and renal cell cancers.Respiration

Primary pulmonary lymphoma is a relatively uncommon disease in both the thoracic and lymphoproliferative spectrum of cancers, accounting for only up to 1% of primary pulmonary malignancies and fewer than 1% of all lymphomas.1 Diagnosis requires pathologic confirmation of the lymphoproliferative disorder in the lungs, with no detectable extrathoracic manifestations of the disease for at least 3 months after the initial diagnosis to avoid accidental inclusion of lymphoma that has secondarily progressed to involve the lungs.
Conclusions: The findings of the study convincingly suggest the presence of a stromal component in RB tumours. The interactions between stromal cells and tumour cells might be of profound importance in RB progression.Ocul Oncol Pathol
We present the first case in the literature of a patient with recurrent vulvar cancer who was treated successfully with pembrolizumab. Caris next-generation testing revealed a PD-L1 and PD-1 mutation (PD-L1 positive, 2+, 100%). She attained a complete clinical remission after 2 cycles, and a CT scan after 6 cycles revealed a significant response by RECIST criteria. After completing 10 cycles, treatment was stopped due to complications of severe malnutrition related to narcotic abuse. A CT scan 10 weeks after the final treatment revealed no adenopathy. Pembrolizumab is a safe and effective chemotherapeutic agent to treat re...

Transoral robotic surgery has shown significant promise in the management of oropharyngeal cancer since its description in 2007. The oncological efficacy of this procedure has been proven in several single-centre studies, multicentre collaborative publications and systematic reviews. The rapid take-up of transoral robotic surgery shows greater acceptance by professionals and is associated with a relatively short learning curve. This overview discusses the rationale and principles underlying the use of transoral robotic surgery in primary and recurrent oropharyngeal cancer and the emerging role for this technique in diagnos...
