Tongue Carcinoma


Presentation

  • Clinical and immunohistochemical features of this rare case are presented and discussed.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • We present a patient with endobronchial metastasis previously operated for tongue carcinoma. A 71-year-old female patient presented with the complaint of cough. She had a history of tongue carcinoma operation 2 years before.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Abstract A 54-year-old male presented with the complaint of a painful sore on the left side of his tongue. Our examination found an ulcer 15 x 20 mm in size on the left edge of the tongue, with peripheral indurations.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • We present the non-contrast-enhanced CT finding of high attenuation within metastatic regional lymph nodes in two patients with stage I or II tongue carcinoma during a follow-up period.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Three months later, the patient presented with local tongue recurrence and was treated by Docetaxel and Carboplatin chemotherapy with no significant response. The patient died one month later, 9 months after his initial diagnosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Down Syndrome
  • To our knowledge, this is the first case of tongue carcinoma arising in a patient with Down's syndrome.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Short Stature
  • Patients with FA may show a variety of congenital and developmental abnormalities such as skeletal, renal, gastrointestinal, cardiac and genital anomalies, skin pigmentation defects, short stature, microphthalmia and mental retardation.[scielo.br]
Respiratory Insufficiency
  • There was no finding suggestive of local recurrence; however, the patient died from hemoptysis and respiratory insufficiency.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Lesion of the Tongue
  • Drainage patterns depend on the location of the primary lesion 6 : anterior tongue: level Ia nodes (submental nodes) lateral tongue level Ib nodes : submandibular and level II nodes : upper jugulodigastric nodes potentially drain directly to level IV[radiopaedia.org]
  • CASE REPORT A 12-year-old male Caucasian patient was referred by the Hematology Service to the Stomatology and Bucomaxillofacial Cancer Prevention Service of São Lucas Hospital, (Brazil) for examination of asymptomatic white lesions on his tongue with[scielo.br]
  • With early stage carcinoma of the oral tongue, partial glossectomy is adequate treatment in most cases. 9 Martin and coworkers do not favor neck dissection for occult metastatic lesions from the tongue however prophylactic dissection, used on an individua1[journalgateway.com]
Photosensitivity
  • METHODS: In this study we prepared covalent conjugates between the photosensitizer chlorin(e6) and hyperbranched poly(ether-ester), HPEE.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Referred Otalgia
  • .  Referred otalgia results from innervation by V3,lesser palatine nerve, and the glossopharyngeal nerve.  Lymphatic into Level II nodes. 10. Floor of the Mouth 11. Tongue 12.[slideshare.net]
Neck Mass
  • A neck mass may, therefore, be the presenting complaint. A common staging system is used for all squamous cell carcinomas of the oral cavity, with tumor staging being based on size and extension into adjacent structures.[radiopaedia.org]
  • Other symptoms include: A sore on the lip that doesn't heal Persistent lip pain or lip numbness A lump or thickening on the lip A white or red patch on the lip A neck mass Treatments for lip cancer Our goal is to treat lip cancer in ways that cause as[cancercenter.com]

Workup

Cavitary Lesion
  • There was a big cavitary lesion in the right lower lobe and bilateral multiple nodular lesions, some of which had cavity formation on computed tomography.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Treatment

  • Curative treatment for base-of-tongue squamous cell carcinoma (BOT SCC) has evolved over time; however, comparative outcomes analysis for various treatment strategies is lacking.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • CLINICAL RELEVANCE: This study provides modern treatment strategies for the tongue carcinoma.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Each kind of subjects was divided into control, ultrasound-alone, scutellarin-alone, and combined ultrasound-scutellarin treatment groups. Only the combined treatment showed strong anticancer effects.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Hyoid bone invasion may be a possible indication for intensification of treatment and/or may indicate a necessity for increasing the degree of post-treatment surveillance monitoring and imaging. 2015 John Wiley & Sons Ltd.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • AIM: The aim of this study was to present the results of the surgical treatment of patients over and under 40, diagnosed with anterolateral carcinoma of the tongue.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Prognosis

  • CONCLUSIONS: Bcl-2 is associated with aggressive disease, neck lymph node metastasis, and poor prognosis. Whereas Bax is related with histologic grade.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • This unique case might not be sufficient to make a significant conclusion on the prognosis and survival of these patients but will increase the awareness about this possibility and will help in the appropriate management of Down's syndrome patients.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • CONCLUSION: Intraoral ultrasonography had satisfactory accuracy in the measurement of tumor thickness and is a useful adjunct in assisting pretreatment staging and prognosis evaluation of oral tongue carcinoma.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • However, the prognosis according to expression of HGF/c-Met has not been reported in patients with squamous cell carcinoma of the oral tongue (SCCOT).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • It is a dreaded complication and has a dismal prognosis if not promptly recognized and treated. Copyright 2012 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Etiology

  • The etiology of the lesion was considered to be ischemia secondary to compression by the necrotic myocutaneous flap.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • BACKGROUND: Little is known regarding the etiology and genomic underpinnings of Oral Tongue Squamous Cell Carcinoma (OTSCC) in patients who lack traditional risk factors, yet the incidence is increasing.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Etiology 19. Etiology 20.[slideshare.net]
  • This report focuses on the etiological factors and prognosis related to the case. Additionally, a brief literature review regarding squamous cell carcinoma in young patients is also included.[indianjcancer.com]

Epidemiology

  • This study emphasizes the current clinico-epidemiological trends of carcinoma tongue in central India and needs more studies on this issue to tackle the situation efficiently.[ccij-online.org]
  • The last three decades has witnessed a change in the OTSCC epidemiological profile, with increasing incidence in younger patients, females and never-smokers.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Epidemiology and risk factors are similar to squamous cell carcinomas elsewhere in the upper aerodigestive tract, with tobacco smoking and alcohol ingestion being major risk factors 1-3,9 .[radiopaedia.org]
