Benign Hypopharyngeal Neoplasm

Benign Hypopharyngeal Tumor


Presentation

  • Abstract We present the clinical case of a polyp in the hypopharynx discovered incidentally while performing an upper digestive endoscopy in a middle aged woman.[elsevier.es]
  • A 74-year-old female presented with a 3-month history of right-sided nasal obstruction was presented. Although it is infrequently, the possibility of pleomorphic… CONTINUE READING[semanticscholar.org]
  • More than 50% of patients with hypopharyngeal cancer have clinically positive cervical nodes at the time of presentation. In 50% of these individuals, a neck mass is the presenting symptom.[es.oncolink.org]

  • We present a 60 year-old man who underwent MPI to evaluate coronary artery disease as the possible cause of his chest discomfort.[cyberleninka.org]
Physician
  • ENT physicians are encountered many benign and malignant pathologies in the nasal region that clinical symptoms mimic inflammatory pathologies. Delay in the diagnosis of malignant pathology significantly worse prognosis.[dergipark.org.tr]
  • If you ever do find an unusual growth on your body, contact your primary care physician as soon as possible. Depending on where the growth is, you may need a physical exam, blood tests, imaging tests, or a tissue biopsy.[verywellhealth.com]

Papule
  • Absent or dysfunctional PTEN protein allows cells to over-proliferate, causing hamartomas. [14] Cowden syndrome is an autosomal dominant genetic disorder characterised by multiple benign hamartomas ( trichilemmomas and mucocutaneous papillomatous papules[en.wikipedia.org]
Hyperkeratosis
  • Based on this description, leukoplakia can range from hyperkeratosis to an actual early invasive carcinoma or may represent only a fungal infection, lichen planus, or other benign oral disease. References Oral cavity and oropharynx.[es.oncolink.org]

Treatment

  • Expert-reviewed information summary about the treatment of adult hypopharyngeal cancer.[es.oncolink.org]
  • Keywords: Nasal pathologies, differential diagnosis, treatment Objectives Primary tumors of nasal cavity are classified as benign and malignant or epithelial and non-epithelial tumors.[dergipark.org.tr]
  • If you have been diagnosed with a tumor, the first step your doctor will take is to find out whether it is malignant or benign, as this will affect your treatment plan.[verywellhealth.com]
  • In some case other treatments may be of use.[en.wikipedia.org]
  • Nevi, or moles, are types of benign tumors that may never need treatment. Other types of benign tumors include: Adenomas : These bumps form on the surfaces of G-I tract.[cancercenter.com]

Prognosis

  • Delay in the diagnosis of malignant pathology significantly worse prognosis.[dergipark.org.tr]
  • In a retrospective study, a total volume of metastatic disease of more than 100 cm3 indicated a particularly poor prognosis.[es.oncolink.org]

Etiology

  • Nasal cavity tumors among the factors that play a role in the etiology of prolonged contact with wood dust, cigarette and tobacco use habits can be considered.[dergipark.org.tr]

Prevention

  • Also, some types of benign tumors such as intestinal polyps are considered precancerous and are removed to prevent them becoming malignant. Benign tumors usually don't recur once removed, but if they do it is usually in the same place.[verywellhealth.com]
  • Some damaged genes may also prevent bad cells from killing themselves to make room for new, healthy cells. "The regulation of cell death so important," Dr. Garcia says.[cancercenter.com]
