Blurred Vision
  • Signs of uveal melanoma can include blurred vision, flashes, floaters, headache or a dark spot on the eye.[cancer.osu.edu]
  • Approximately 30% of the patients have no symptoms at time of diagnosis, and if there are any complaints these consist mostly of blurred vision, floaters, photopsias and visual field loss ( Damato, 2010 ) ( figure 1 ).[intechopen.com]


  • […] each participant, information on their skin examination, sun exposure history, medical photographs (both overview and close-up) and blood draw for localizing genetic loci, identifying genes and evaluating phenotype/genotype correlations, constitute the workup[clinicaltrials.gov]
  • If one of the high-risk indicators, mentioned previously is found, there is reasonable evidence for potential growth and many authorities recommend advancing the workup and obtaining a biopsy.[eyewiki.aao.org]

  • WHAT IS THE PROGNOSIS OF MEDULLARY THYROID CANCER? The prognosis of MTC is usually not as favorable as differentiated thyroid cancers ( papillary and follicular cancer ). However, if discovered early, surgery can be curative.[thyroid.org]

  • Etiology FAMMM syndrome has been associated with mutations in the 16p locus of CDKN2A (9p21), a tumor suppressor gene involved in cell cycle inhibition. However, approximately 60% of patients with FAMMM syndrome do not have a CDKN2A mutation.[orpha.net]
