CONCLUSION: Substantial risk of SPT, especially for in-field sarcoma and tongue cancers, exists after definitive IMRT for NPC. SPT severely negates longevity of NPC survivors. High awareness and careful surveillance is warranted for this late lethal complication. PMID: 29932287 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Synovial sarcoma (SS) is a highly aggressive malignant soft tissue sarcoma with typical characteristics of both epithelial and mesenchymal differentiation. Matrix metalloproteinase-14 (MMP-14) is reported to play an important role in some of these tumors. It induces epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition (EMT) in some carcinomas, such as breast and prostate cancers. However, the role of MMP-14 in the pathogenesis of SS remains unclear. Therefore, we investigated the role of MMP-14 and EMT/mesenchymal-to-epithelial transition (MET) in SS.

Rationale: Multiple primary neoplasms (MPNs) are rare. Most MPNs are double, and triple primary neoplasms are extremely rarer. Here, we describe a case of a 66-year-old man diagnosed with metachronous triple primary neoplasms with primary prostate cancer, lung cancer and colon cancer. Patient concerns: The patient complained of dysuria in January 2015, and he underwent transurethral resection of the prostate. The pathological results showed acinar adenocarcinoma of prostate with a Gleason score of 3+3. In January 2017, he complained of lower abdominal pain, then he took an enteroscopy examination, found a mass in the ...

Conclusion The patient-based sensitivity, specificity and accuracy of WB MRI including DWI were comparable with those of PET/MRI. On the other hand, the lesion-based sensitivities of WB MRI were relatively low, mainly because of the low detectability of small lymph node metastasis. The combination of T2WI and DWI showed acceptable detectability; however, the T1WI sequence showed no additional value to detect malignant lesions on both lesion- and patient-based sensitivities.

Conclusion: The cancer burden among PLWH is projected to shift, with prostate and lung cancer expected to emerge as the most common types by 2030. Cancer will remain an important comorbid condition, and expanded access to HIV therapies and cancer prevention, screening, and treatment is needed. Primary Funding Source: National Cancer Institute.

In battle, the standard-bearer honorarily carries the flag, which represents the nobility and purpose of continuing the fight. In the war on cancer many advances have been made that surround the more common cancers such as breast cancer, prostate cancer, colon cancer, and lung cancer. However, there are these rare tumors of mesenchymal origin, sarcomas, which have disproportionately advanced the front lines of our understanding of cancer mechanisms. It is because of sarcoma research that we even know what oncogenes and tumor suppressor genes are.

ABSTRACT Introduction Carcinosarcoma of the bladder is a very rare neoplasm. The pathogenesis of carcinosarcomas is not clearly understood and remains a subject of debate. Whilst there is some research conceptualizing the histopathological findings of bladder carcinosarcomas, the demographic features, clinical outcomes, prognosis and treatment options remain unclear. Materials and Methods We analyzed 12 consecutive cases of patients with sarcoma-toid bladder cancer who were treated surgically at a single Urology Department be-tween 1999 and 2015. Radiology, pathology and surgical reports were reviewed to determine the path...
