Rib Tumor

Neoplasm of Rib


Presentation

  • We report a rare case of cholesterol granuloma involving the second rib of a 38-year-old-woman who presented with a slowly growing lesion of the anterior aspect of the chest. Copyright 2013 The Society of Thoracic Surgeons.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Abstract We report an unusual case of a nonchromaffin paraganglioma, 7 cm in diameter, presenting clinically within the thorax of a 7-year-old girl as a primary rib tumor. It is believed to be the first report of such a location for this tumor.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • In the present patient remarkable effect on rib tumor was observed after administration of IMiDs. These novel treatments should be tried before surgical resection.[ijcasereportsandimages.com]
  • Operative checklists are included in procedural chapters, and procedures are presented as bulleted to-do lists wherever possible.[books.google.com]
  • In this study, we compare the present patient with these two patients, with a review of the literature.[jstage.jst.go.jp]
Rib Tenderness
  • Because the lump has gotten bigger and you are experiencing increasing rib tenderness, it's time to go back to the doctor. I'm not sure why you are sure that this could not be a sebaceous cyst.[healthcentral.com]
Chest Wall Pain
  • Consider the diagnosis if patients have a chest mass or unexplained chest wall pain, with or without fever. Diagnose chest wall tumors with imaging, followed by biopsy.[merckmanuals.com]
Eruptions
  • She was treated with lenalidomide and dexamethasone (DXA) for two weeks, which were stopped due to skin eruption, and subsequently with pomalidomide and DXA for two months, and a visible therapeutic effect of a tumor size decrease (Figure 2), as well[ijcasereportsandimages.com]
Peripheral Neuropathy
  • However, it was stopped due to peripheral neuropathy. Anemia, bone pain including pain at the rib tumor (Figure 1), renal impairment, and an increase in IgG appeared nine months later (Table 1).[ijcasereportsandimages.com]

Polyps
  • 704 Semispecific Liver Patterns in Cirrhosis 719 Viral Markers of Hepatitis 738 Intravenous Contrast Strategies for Liver Lesions 745 Balthazar CTSeverity Index for Acute Pancreatitis 757 GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT 769 Differential Diagnosis of Colonic Polyps[books.google.de]

Treatment

  • Concise review - Treatment of multiple myeloma in the very elderly: How do novel agents fit in? J Geriatr Oncol 2016 Sep;7(5):383–9. [ CrossRef ] [ Pubmed ][ijcasereportsandimages.com]
  • Multidisciplinary contributions on medical treatment, radiation oncology, and surgery and anesthesia are included. Highlights include new material on minimally invasive procedures and thoroughly updated diagnostic and treatment information.[books.google.com]
  • AB - Purpose: This paper describes the design and experimental evaluation of the Methods and Advanced Equipment for Simulation and Treatment in Radiation Oncology (MAESTRO) thorax phantom, a new anthropomorphic moving ribcage combined with a 3D tumor[pureportal.coventry.ac.uk]
  • Treatment and Medical Care Sarcomas are a complex form of cancer and require team-oriented, multi-modal, individualized treatment plans.[sarcomaoncology.com]
  • Treatment of Chest Wall Tumors Treatment options will depend upon the type of chest wall tumor found.[mcancer.org]

Prognosis

  • The prognosis (outlook) depends on the degree of local tumor replacement and the extent of liver function impairment. Primary liver cancer (hepatocellular carcinoma) is the most common cancer in some parts of the world.[medicinenet.com]
  • Prognosis varies by cancer type, cell differentiation, and stage; firm conclusions are limited by the low incidence of any given tumor. Sarcomas have been the most well studied, and primary chest wall sarcomas have a reported 5-yr survival of 17%.[merckmanuals.com]
  • Local recurrence, a high Campanacci grade and curettage are possible high risk factors for pulmonary metastasis ( J Bone Oncol 2017;7:23 ) Secondary malignancy in giant cell tumor of bone (arising after treatment of a benign giant cell tumor) has a poor prognosis[pathologyoutlines.com]

Etiology

  • A 30-year-old female consulted our hospital with right thoracic pain without etiological factors. At the 9th rib, pressure pain was noted and was exacerbated during movement.[jstage.jst.go.jp]
  • Aflatoxin has also been implicated as a factor in the etiology (causation) of primary liver cancer in parts of the world where this mycotoxin- that is a toxic substance which comes from a mold - occurs in high levels in food.[medicinenet.com]

Epidemiology

  • […] surgery or low dose radiation therapy (more common than primary malignant giant cell tumor of bone) ICD coding D48.0 : Giant cell tumor of bone, NOS (uncertain whether benign or malignant) C40, C41 : Giant cell tumor of bone, malignant, primary site Epidemiology[pathologyoutlines.com]

Age distribution

Pathophysiology

  • Other bones (proximal sacrum, vertebrae, skull base) may be involved, and any bone may be affected 95% are unifocal Uncommon in hands / feet (more likely to be giant cell lesion of the small bones), jaw (more likely to be central giant cell granuloma ) Pathophysiology[pathologyoutlines.com]

Prevention

  • My question is which lipomas should I remove first, the grapefruit size under my rib cage, the many on my arms that prevent movement or the ones on both legs that prevent driving walking or sitting. I am afraid of needles.[realself.com]
  • Chemotherapy is an art and science and the right combinations of treatments aggressively eliminates cancer, prevents recurrence and maintains the patient’s quality of life through treatment. Over 50% of Dr.[sarcomaoncology.com]
