  • Skin Cancer: Basal Cell Carcinoma

    types of cancer such as, Basal Cell Carcinoma, Squamous cell Carcinoma, and Melanoma. Skin cancer is the number one cancer diagnosis in the United States. The most basic definition of skin cancer is “the uncontrolled growth of abnormal skin cells” (“Skin Cancer Foundation”). When discussing skin cancer, it is necessary to mention each cancer individually, as they are not all the same. For instance, Basal cell Carcinoma is the appearance of “abnormal, uncontrolled growths or lesions” (“Skin Cancer Foundation”). This is the most common type of skin cancer, and over 2.8 million people per year are diagnosed with this specific cancer (Cancer Resources). Squamous cell Carcinoma,…

  • Essay On Anonymous Cell Carcinoma

    Squamous Cell Carcinoma Squamous cell carcinoma is a common form of skin cancer. It begins in the squamous cells in the outer layer of the skin (epidermis). It occurs most often in parts of the body that are frequently exposed to the sun, such as the face, lips, neck, arms, legs, and hands. However, this condition can occur anywhere on the body, including the inside of the mouth, sites of long-term (chronic) scarring, and the anus. If treated soon enough, squamous cell carcinoma rarely spreads…

  • Anonymous Cell Carcinoma Case Study

    Squamous cell carcinoma is the second most type of skin cancer, and is commonly caused by regular exposure to ultraviolet radiation. Squamous cell carcinoma is a slow-growing skin cancer, but it can spread to the tissues, bones, and lymph nodes where it can be hard to treat. Some factors make it more likely to develop squamous cell carcinoma including exposure to ultraviolet radiation, Bowen’s disease, and having a lighter skin complexion. More exposure to ultraviolet radiation whether it…

  • Pancreatic Adenosquamous Carcinoma Case Study

    Significance Pancreatic adenosquamous carcinoma (ASC) is a rare but aggressive tumor, with higher metastatic potential and an even worse prognosis than pancreatic adenocarcinoma[1, 2]. A major hindrance towards development of therapies against pancreatic ASC is that the molecular mechanisms underlying its pathogenesis remain poorly characterized. In this proposal I will take advantage of the expertise on RNA biochemistry and molecular biology that I have acquired during my doctoral training and…

  • Essay On Invasive Ductal Carcinoma

    Invasive ductal carcinoma is the most common type of breast cancer and it is the most diagnosed type of breast cancer [Invasive Ductal Carcinoma (IDC)1]. Invasive means that the cancer has “invaded” or spread to the surrounding breast tissues [IDC — Invasive Ductal Carcinoma 1]. Ductal means that the cancer began in the milk ducts, which are the “pipes” that carry milk from the milk-producing lobules to the nipple [IDC — Invasive Ductal Carcinoma 2]. IDC has the potential to invade your lymph…

  • Memory Tumor Infiltrating Lymphocytes In Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer Case Study

    incubation to take place for 20 minutes at normal body temperature. After the incubation, there was a staining procedure to allow for the visualization of the nuclei. These specimens were then scored. This scoring was used in order to compare and combine CD45RO with CD8. Because there was the usage of scores, statistical analysis was performed in the study. This analysis allowed for further methods, rankings, models, probabilities and other types of analysis to interpret or simulate the survival…

  • 'Medical Ethics In Henrietta Lacks'

    A quote to highlight the misuse of medical ethics is “TeLinde disagreed— he believed carcinoma in situ was simply an early stage of invasive carcinoma that, if left untreated, eventually became deadly. So he treated it aggressively, often removing the cervix, uterus, and most of the vagina” (Skloot 165). This was unethical because there was no proven way to tell if this was the best treatment method, he did it just because he thought it was best. This is an example of a doctor using his own…

  • Case Study: Hurthle Cell Carcinoma

    1. What is the presumptive diagnosis and at least two other potential diagnoses in the differential? Why is the presumptive diagnosis most likely? Hurthle Cell Carcinoma. This is the presumptive diagnosis at this point. The evidence that supports this is the cells were large and brightly eosinophilic which is likely the staining of the mitochondria within the cell. The combination of the eosinophilic staining and poorly formed follicles, likely makes this tumor follicular cell tumor more…

  • Anaplastic Thyroid Carcinoma (ATC)

    Anaplastic thyroid carcinoma or also known as (ATC) is located on the gene NKX2-1 which is found on chromosome 14q13.3. ATC is a very rapid and aggressive type of thyroid cancer. Anaplastic invades the thyroid gland that’s located at the base of the throat right below the adam’s apple. Your thyroid produces hormones that regulate your heart rate, blood pressure, body temperature and weight. Anaplastic is the least common thyroid cancer out of the 4 types, anaplastic occurs to people of the age…

  • Basal Cell Carcinoma Case Study

    Background Basal cell carcinoma can be defined as a malignant neoplasm in humans. Basal cell carcinoma originates in the areas between the follicles, subject to a spontaneous mutation. BCC’s can be organized into four categories: nodular, morpheaform, metatypical, and superficial. BCC can be treated generally through SMO inhibitors, for example, vismodegib (Ximena 398). Vismodegib is a molecule inhibitor of the Hedgehog (Hh) pathway (Pricl 389). The pathogenesis of BCC is the inapposite…
