Associations between childhood cancer treatment and tooth agenesis.

CONCLUSION: This study found that childhood cancer survivors in New Zealand had a high prevalence of developmental dental abnormalities and it identified potential risk factors related to their cancer treatment. Inequitable access to oral rehabilitation for this patient group argues for a mechanism for consistent improved access to publicly funded dental care across district health boards in New Zealand.

In the years that followed, Professor Harald zur Hausen actively supported the value of the HPV vaccination in the prevention of different types of cancer and highlighted the necessity of its introduction in both girls and boys. However, to date, in the majority of countries, HPV vaccination among male adol...

We report the case of a rhabdomyosarcoma, initially diagnosed as a dental abscess, in the mandible of a 7-year-old girl. Clinical examination revealed an expansive mass, 12  cm in diameter, in the body of the right jaw. On incisional biopsy, this was identified as a malignant neoplasm of low differentiation suggestive of sarcoma, requiring differential diagnosis between Ewing sarcoma and rhabdomyosarcoma.

by Drew RosielleTheAmerican Society of Clinical Oncology annual meeting, besides being a feast for the pharmaceutical business news pages (google'ASCO'and most of the hits will be about how announcement X affected drug company Y's stock), is also one of the premiere platforms for publishing original palliative-oncology research. So every year I try to at least scan the abstracts to see what's happening, and I figure I might as well blog about it. It's tough to analyze abstracts, so I'll mostly just be summarizing ones that I think will be of interest to hospice and palliative care folks. I imagine I've missed some good one...

Philipone, Angela J. Yoon Rhabdomyosarcoma (RMS) is a malignant tumor of the skeletal muscle origin that frequently involves the head and neck region. It represents the second most common pediatric soft tissue sarcoma, and accounts for 3% of all childhood cancers. Herein, we report a case of embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma presenting as a right sided facial swelling in a 7-year-old boy. Histologically, the tumor consisted of classic em...

This article discusses the common long-term complications associated with head and neck radiotherapy for childhood cancers. It reviews approaches to minimize toxicity and details the toxicities that head and neck radiation inflicts on relevant functional measures. In addition, it discusses the risk of radiation-induced secondary cancers in childhood cancer survivors, as well as strategies to reduce them. Thus, this article addresses approaches to minimize long-term radiation toxicities in order to improve the quality of life for childhood cancer survivors. PMID: 26614704 [PubMed - in process]
