Mammography is an important surveillance tool for detecting ipsilateral breast tumor recurrence (IBTR) after BCS. Although IBTR is rare in the first 2 years, various organizations have established protocols for postoperative mammographic…

BACKGROUND: The value of routine frozen section examination for intraoperative diagnosis of thyroid cancer and determination of extent of thyroidectomy is controversial and needs to be evaluated on an institution to institution basis. METHODS: A…

Good models for the investigation of human prostate cancer are few. Cells from approximately 9.2-21 ml of peripheral blood from patients with metastatic prostate cancer or metastatic colon cancer were injected s.c. into nude mice. Prostate cancer…

Objective.-After identifying a metastatic glycogen-rich balloon cell malignant melanoma, originally thought to be a benign clear cell tumor of the lung, we investigated the extent of positive reactions, or "positivity," of malignant melanoma to…

Purpose: To investigate the association of overall and disease-specific survival with the five standard treatment modalities for prostate cancer (CaP): radical prostatectomy (RP), brachytherapy (BT), external beam radiotherapy, androgen deprivation…

OBJECTIVE: To compare pain, adverse effects and recurrence of dysplasia in patients with vaginal intraepithelial neoplasia or vulvar intraepithelial neoplasia prospectively treated by carbon dioxide laser or ultrasonic surgical aspiration. METHODS:…

Context. Women diagnosed with ovarian cancer are at risk for reduced quality of life (QOL). It is imperative to further define these declines to interpret treatment outcomes and design appropriate clinical interventions. Objectives. The primary…

Objective(s). The objective was to determine whether there were changes in the pattern and nature of hospitalizations during the last year that could be used in the assessment of whether chemotherapy should be continued. Methods. Retrospective data…

Background. Treatment with chemotherapeutic agents, after initial ovarian tumor debulking, and during recurrence, results in extended chemotherapy. When ovarian cancer recurs, chemotherapy is continued when patients respond to therapy. However, the…

BACKGROUND: The objective of this study was to assess which quality-of-life (QOL) line items on the Functional Assessment of Cancer Therapy-Ovarian (FACT-O) were associated with low QOL in women who were receiving chemotherapy for ovarian cancer.…

The timing of surgery during the menstrual cycle of premenopausal breast cancer patients was correlated with their disease-free survival (DFS) and overall survival (OS). The study included 150 premenopausal patients treated for breast cancer between…

Analysis of the National Cancer Institute's Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results data has shown that the incidence of thyroid cancer is higher in patients with a preexisting malignancy and that the incidence of other malignancies is higher in…

Carcinoma of the urethra is rare with only about 1,500 cases in the literature. Even more rare is carcinoma arising from a urethral diverticulum with about 100 cases reported to date. We report a case of clear cell adenocarcinoma arising from a…

Nuclear protein of the testis (NUT) midline carcinoma can present in the head, neck, and mediastinum. In general, it presents in young adult men and has a poor prognosis. We report on a case of NUT midline carcinoma of the mediastinum in a man 27…

A case of a 29-year-old woman with primary small cell carcinoma of the ovary associated with hypercalcemia is presented. Despite intensive surgical and chemotherapeutic intervention, the patient expired after 19 months. Literature review indicates…

Cases of primary colorectal signet-ring cell carcinoma metastatic to the tonsil are extremely rare. To the best of our knowledge, only 4 such cases have been previously reported in the literature. We report a new case in a 76-year-old white woman.…

Osteitis fibrosa cystica (brown tumors) can be a skeletal manifestation of advanced hyperparathyroidism, including parathyroid cancer. Severe osteitis fibrosa cystica can mimic metastatic bone diseases especially in patients with a history of cancer.…

The effect of several novel silatrane derivatives on the growth of syngeneic renal cell carcinoma (RENCA) in BALB/c mice and the survival rate of the animals were evaluated. The RENCA-bearing animals were treated subcutaneously and weekly with either…

OBJECTIVE: To examine the presentation, diagnosis, and appropriate management of renal clear cell carcinoma metastasis to the thyroid gland. METHODS: We describe a clinical case of solitary thyroid metastasis from renal clear cell carcinoma and…

Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) happens to be one of the most lethal cancers in the world. Even though most cases occur in the developing world, reported cases in Western Europe as well as North America are on a steep rise. Human HCC etiology includes…

Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) remains one of the most lethal cancers in the world. Since current treatment options including surgical resection and liver transplantation offer limited therapeutic benefits, there exists a need to evaluate novel…
