Shellie Clark, of Maidenhead, was diagnosed with melanoma five months ago. She warns that if it can happen to her - someone who rarely sunbathed - it will happen to anyone.
Researchers compared the swallowing-related quality-of-life scores of patients with oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma who received radiotherapy and patients who received transoral robotic surgery with neck dissection.
AbstractDespite major improvements in combatting metastatic melanoma since the advent of immunotherapy, the overall survival for patients with advanced disease remains low. Recently, there is a growing number of reports supporting an “obesity paradox,” in which patients who are overweight or mildly obese may exhibit a survival benefit in patients who received immune checkpoint inhibitors. We studied the relationship between body mass index and progression-free survival and overall survival in a cohort of 423 metastatic melan oma patients receiving immunotherapy, enrolled and prospectively followed up in the NYU...
ConclusionsPhysicians should be aware of the possibility of the emergence of primary malignancies in patients with a history of papillary thyroid carcinoma, especially lung cancer as it is a common site of papillary thyroid carcinoma metastases. Using appropriate diagnostic evaluations in order to choose the best therapeutic option is of utmost importance.
In conclusion, this study elucidated that combination of cisplatin and XAV-939 exerted cytotoxic and genotoxic effect to abrogate CSC mediated chemoresistance in HNSCC in synergistic manner.
CONCLUSIONWe present a case of SCC in the anal canal with liver metastasis presenting as a hepatic pseudocyst.
ConclusionCC shows an indolent clinical behavior, with a low recurrence rate after radical surgery. The diagnosis of this rare tumor is typically made after surgery. An aggressive approach is required with curative intents.
