  • Therefore, the possibility of concomitant breast cancer and endometrial cancer in a younger woman (premenopausal) is often neglected. The reported case is an example of this situation.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Altered Mental Status
  • We report the first ever case of synchronous ILBCL and invasive ductal carcinoma (IDC) of the breast in a patient presenting with pyrexia of unknown origin and altered mental status who underwent modified radical mastectomy and subsequent chemotherapy[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]


  • (See Workup.) Increased public awareness and improved screening have led to earlier diagnosis, at stages amenable to complete surgical resection and curative therapies.[emedicine.medscape.com]
Multilocular Cyst
  • Further examination showed a 7.0 cm multilocular cyst in the pancreatic tail and a solid mass in the thick septum of the cystic tumor. Distal pancreatectomy and splenectomy were performed.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Hepatocellular Carcinoma
  • Prostate, pancreatic, and hepatocellular carcinomas exhibit consistent marked zinc decrease in situ in the malignant cells, and other cancers (such as kidney, lung, and thyroid) also exhibit decreased tissue zinc levels.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]


  • This literature review was structured to identify and understand both the positive and negative QOL factors throughout breast cancer treatment, as well as post breast cancer treatment.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Patients with oligometastatic disease may benefit from aggressive treatment including local therapies.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Two months after the myiasis treatment, the breast tissue had healed. The patient had waited ten days from the onset of the myiasis to seek treatment, and that delay interfered negatively in the prognosis of both the neoplasm and the myiasis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Patient, tumor, and treatment characteristics were collected. Ten-year overall survival (OS) was estimated using the Kaplan-Meier method and Cox proportional-hazards modeling.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Entecavir, a deoxyguanosine analog, offers several advantages over lamivudine for the treatment of HBV reactivation following chemotherapy while exhibiting more potent antiviral activity and a lower resistance rate.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]


  • Survival curves showed that the prognosis for ILC became worse than IDC over time.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Clinical characteristics and prognosis of BIDC vary among different molecular subtypes. This study provides valuable input on BIDC therapy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Pathophysiology The current understanding of breast cancer etiopathogenesis is that invasive cancers arise through a series of molecular alterations at the cell level.[emedicine.medscape.com]


  • Since this condition is rarely reported, the correlated risk factors are worthy of our attention and the strategy for prevention is highlighted.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • CONCLUSIONS: The decreased zinc levels in breast invasive ductal carcinoma is consistent with prostate, pancreatic, and liver carcinomas in which the decrease in zinc is a required event in the development of malignancy to prevent cytotoxicity that would[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Though not considered hormone therapy, Herceptin is another drug that helps prevent cancer recurrence. Called a biologic, Herceptin attaches itself to cancer cells and prevents them from receiving growth signals.[healthcentral.com]
