California woman shocked to find out the 'pimple' above her lip turned out to be skin cancer
Tracy French, from Arcadia, California, was diagnosed with a type of skin cancer - squamous cell carcinoma - after what she thought was a pimple above her lip turned into a red, scaly patch.
CONCLUSION: Due to its unclear components, potential toxicities, misuse, and over-application, TCM might contribute to tumorigenesis and progression of head neck carcinoma. We seek effective approaches to ensure the safe use of TCM. PMID: 31424693 [PubMed - in process]
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.
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.
ConclusionsResidual disease may be inconspicuous or absent on cytology, colposcopy and/or histology. Management taking account of risk of recurrence (age, CIN3 depth, incomplete initial excision) could avoid some post-treatment cancers.
Publication date: Available online 17 July 2019Source: Seminars in Ultrasound, CT and MRIAuthor(s): Katie S. Traylor, Nicholas Koontz, Kristine MosierThe incidence of head and neck cancer continues to rise annually, most commonly squamous cell carcinoma (SCCa). Advances in imaging techniques have improved diagnostic accuracy with important ramifications for initial staging and post-treatment surveillance. FDG-PET/CT and, more recently, FDG-PET/MRI have revolutionized the staging and surveillance of head and neck SCCa. We detail the diagnostic role of FDG-PET/CT and FDG-PET/MRI of SCCa at the different head and neck subsite...
