Cancer Diagnosis: initial tests, biopsy and tissue diagnosis, staging and the MDT
How are cancers diagnosed? When a doctor suspects that a patient may have cancer, they will order initial tests, depending on exactly what is suspected, in order to further investigate their concern. They will then refer their patient to the relevant specialty doctor. If a suspicious lesion is seen on a scan or other investigation, a tissue sample, also known as a biopsy, needs to be taken in order to see under the microscope whether the tissue is indeed cancerous. A team of clinicians involved in the care will meet and discuss the case - this is known as a multi-disciplinary meeting or MDT. MDTs often contain physicians, histopathologists (who look at biopsy samples to give a tissue diagnosis), radiologists (who look at scans to stage cancers), surgeons, oncologists and specialist nurses.
Breast Cancer Diagnosis delayed because of dense tissue
My breast cancer diagnosis was delayed 5 years because I had dense breast tissue. No one explained to me how density impacts a mammograms ability to reveal cancer. No one told me that I was at a higher risk for cancer because of density.I had 4 mammos in a row read as normal when I actually had cancer.

4. Hallmarks of Cancer (part 1)
The hallmarks of cancer are a list of properties that cancerous cells all have in common. These properties are behaviours gained through mutations to genes that produce proteins that function to provide them with these abilities: They include: 1. self sufficient growth 2. insensitivity to anti-growth signals 3. tissue invasion and metastasis 4. limitless replicative potential 5. sustained angiogenesis 6. avoiding apoptosis This video covers the first 2 hallmarks. Cell division in the body is normally very tightly controlled to ensure that tissues in the body – which are made up of cells – grow in the co-ordinated fashion. Cells normally need signals from other cells to tell them when to divide. When cells break free of these controls, and start dividing even when they are not getting these signals, they begin to divide uncontrollably and neoplasms (also known as tumours) result. Tissues normally regulate their size by controlling the number of cells which are allowed to enter the cell cycle and divide. This is controlled at various points along the cycle called checkpoints. Cancerous cells are able to ignore signals that would normally stop them at these checkpoints. In addition to this, cells with DNA damage, which would include all potentially cancerous cells, are usually stopped at these checkpoints to avoid them diving and passing on their mutations. Cancerous cells are able to pass checkpoints by avoiding these mechanisms. References Hanahan and Weinberg, 2000 The hallmarks of cancer Cell, 100 (2000), pp. 57-70

Pill for Better Diagnosis of Breast Cancer | Michigan Engineering
Researchers from the University of Michigan have developed a diagnostic imaging pill enabling the early and more accurate diagnosis of cancerous tumors in breast tissue. The pill contains a targeting molecule attached to a near-infrared fluorophore that, when absorbed into the bloodstream, will target cancerous tumor cells in breast tissue. A doctor could then use desktop fluorescent imaging equipment to see if any of the targeting molecules bound to any cells in the breast. This new screening method would be cheaper and more effective than current approaches. The research was conducted in the lab of Greg Thurber, an assistant professor of chemical engineering, and was led by Sumit Bhatnagar, a PhD student in chemical engineering. The project was a collaboration between the College of Engineering and the College of Pharmacy. Kirti Verma, Yongjun Hu, Eshita Khera, Aaron Priluck and David Smith also contributed to the work.

Journalist Joan Lunden Discusses Her Breast Cancer Diagnosis and Treatment
Roy Firestone interviews longtime journalist, author and television host Joan Lunden on her recent breast cancer diagnosis and treatment. Lunden announced her diagnosis of breast cancer in June and has been public about her cancer experience. She tells Firestone that she has been overwhelmed with people's support since sharing her journey. "The fact that these people take the time every day to just write a little message or pray for you, stay strong, or they share tips or advice. It has been a very big part of my healing and just keeping me strong," she says. Lunden recounts how the cancer was first identified--not during a routine mammogram, but by ultrasound. Lunden shares a conversation she had in a past interview with the well-known breast cancer surgeon, Susan M. Love, on dense breast tissue and the need for additional screening for certain women. For the past few years, Lunden said, she has been getting both screening procedures because past mammograms showed the journalist had dense breast tissue. "To me, one of my great passions is to make women more aware of their bodies, their breasts and the fact that they need to know whether or not they have dense breast tissue," she says. Lunden also shares how she made the decision to get a second opinion, results of her genetic testing, and how she made her final treatment choice. "We decided to go with this latest regimen, which seemed to us to be the one that would maybe give me my best chances for success and my best chances to not have a recurrence of the disease."

Immunohistochemistry Protocol for Paraffin embedded Tissue Sections
IHC Protocol Video for Paraffin-embedded Tissue Sections from Cell Signaling Technology (CST) 👉 CST Protocols: http://cellsignal.com/protocols 👉 Download the Guide to Successful IHC: https://learn.cellsignal.com/cst-application-guides 👉 Technical support: http://cellsignal.com/support Immunohistochemistry (IHC) is a powerful microscope-based technique that uses an antibody to view a specific protein in biological tissue. It is often used to diagnose abnormal cells in solid tumors, visualize molecular markers for cellular events like apoptosis, and monitor the localizations and expression of biomarkers. However, individuals new to this method can struggle due to the many steps in the procedure that can each add variations that will impact staining. Cell Signaling Technology (CST) scientists have determined optimal conditions for CST antibodies developed and validated in-house for IHC. In this video, we demonstrate the IHC protocol we have optimized for formalin-fixed paraffin embedded (FFPE) tissue sections so you can replicate results in your laboratory and obtain consistent results. We will first describe how to prepare your sample and deparaffinization/rehydrate the FFPE samples followed by the antigen unmasking step, the most difficult step in an IHC protocol. Next, we will review chromogenic staining with the SignalStain DAB Substrate Kit followed by how to mount sections to a coverslip before viewing on a microscope. Finally, we describe how using different conditions than those recommended each antibody Product Data Sheet, like changing the recommended antibody diluent, can affect your final results.

How to Recognize Breast Cancer Symptoms
Watch more Client Videos videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/418228-How-to-Recognize-Breast-Cancer-Symptoms Over the course of a woman's lifetime, she may experience breast changes. While many end up being nothing to worry about, it's important to have any changes that you notice checked by a doctor -- just to be on the safe side. Here are the potential breast cancer symptoms to watch out for. Warning This video does not replace actual medical advice. Always consult your doctor with any questions or concerns. Step 1: Do a monthly self-exam Start performing a monthly self-exam as soon as your breasts are fully developed. Checking yourself regularly is important -- you need to know what your breasts feel like normally so you can recognize any changes. Examine yourself several days after your period ends, when your breasts are least likely to be swollen and tender. If you're no longer having periods, choose a day that's easy to remember, such as the first or last day of the month. Keep in mind that it's not uncommon for breasts to feel lumpy due to benign fibrocystic breast disease, cysts, scar tissue, infections, and other causes that have nothing to do with cancer. Tip For instructions on how to do a breast self-exam properly, go to "Breastcancer.org":http://www.breastcancer.org/. Step 2: Have lumps checked Know what you're feeling for: a lump that feels different from your breast's normal lumpiness, like discovering a pebble in your oatmeal. Though many lumps are benign, anything that feels new or odd should be checked by your doctor -- even if you've recently had a clean mammogram. Check for lumps in your armpits, too. Tip Cancerous lumps are more likely to be hard, painless, and unmovable. Step 3: Beware of dimpled skin Look for visible changes, like dimpled, puckered, thickened, reddened, or scaly breast skin, or a flattening or indentation on the breast. All are potential breast cancer symptoms that should be evaluated. Step 4: Note nipple changes Recognize the nipple changes that can indicate breast cancer -- pain; redness; scaliness; itching; skin thickening; the nipple turning inward; or discharge other than breast milk. Step 5: Have pain and swelling evaluated See your doctor about swelling in all or part of your breast, or breast pain. Though swelling and soreness are usually no cause for concern, these symptoms can be signs of a rare but aggressive form of the disease known as inflammatory breast cancer. Step 6: Get regular check-ups Have your doctor perform a breast examination at your yearly check-up, and begin annual mammograms at age 40. If you have a family history of the disease, tell your doctor: they may suggest that you start having mammograms at an earlier age. Knowing the signs of breast cancer -- and being proactive about knowing how to recognize them early -- is the best way to protect yourself. Did You Know? In a "Breastcancer.org":http://www.breastcancer.org/ survey of more than 2,200 women, 37 percent said they first detected their breast cancer with a self-exam.

Cancer Check During Surgery
(Inside Science) -- An interview with Michael Giacomelli, a postdoctoral fellow from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, on a new, faster cancer imaging technology. “The diagnosis of cancer and especially the evaluation of cancer that is removed from the body is 100-and-something-year-old technique that has advanced very little. “We’ve developed a technology based on ultrafast lasers where we scan specimens as they’re cut out of women undergoing surgery for breast cancer. “The advantage is we can generate images in seconds.” Why do current cancer-identifying techniques need improvement? “So, a typical histology requires overnight processing. So, patients are sent home basically after their surgery, and then after a processing delay, a physician looks at the tissue that was removed from the patient and determines whether or not they removed sufficient tissue. And if they did not, they actually bring the patient back. And in the case of breast cancer, they bring quite a lot of patients back and they re-operate on them if they didn’t cut enough tissue out. So, it’s a major problem actually, to try and make sure that an entire tumor is removed on the first go, if at all possible. “If you want to evaluate a piece of tissue during surgery, you have very limited options. And as a result, a lot of surgeries, and especially surgeries for breast cancer, are done almost entirely based on how the tissue looks to the surgeon’s eye and how it feels to their hand. There’s no microscopic imaging or advanced diagnostics that are readily available for the operating room. “The technology we’ve developed uses a technique called multiphoton microscopy, in which femtosecond laser pulses are focused deep in the tissue. What we’ve developed is a portable system. And it can be used to survey huge pieces of tissue in a matter of minutes.” What does the technology mean for breast cancer patients? “The entire reason that we have this problem with multiple surgeries is just that the slides take a day to generate. So, if you can make the slides in real time, or you can make an image that’s equivalent to the slides, you can simply look at the tissue as it is cut out of the patient and determine whether or not you got all of the cancer, or whether or not you’ve left some of the tumor in the patient.” Can it be used for other types of cancers? “There is a group at Memorial Sloan Kettering that is looking at skin cancer surgery using a related technique, and they are having a very high level of success. There are people looking at related techniques for things like prostate cancer as well.” Future Developments “In terms of technical developments, I think miniaturization is very important. The prototype instrument we’re running now is about 250 pounds and it looks about the size of a refrigerator. We’re working on versions now that are just a few pounds. “I’m also looking into ways that we can do in vivo imaging. So, rather than cut tissue out and then look at it on a microscope, are there ways that we can translate this technology into imaging tissue while it’s still in the patient?” Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/InsideScience/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/insidescience Website: https://www.insidescience.org/

Do Dense Breasts Inflate Cancer Risk
It's a subject near and dear to a women's heart. Their breasts - and whether the density of tissue inflates their risk of breast cancer. "Dense breast tissue is an issue that there's been a lot talked about lately so I think that's in everyone's mind 'well what is dense breast tissue; what does that mean' - really what we are talking about is the ratio of fatty and fibro glandular elements within a particular patients breasts," says Dr. Gail Santucci, diagnostic radiologist with Lee Memorial Health System. Here's what doctors see on a mammogram. "The dark part is the fatty tissue and the little white strands are the fibro glandular tissue. In this women you see mostly a kind of dark, grayish, black so she is predominantly fatty replaced is how we would describe it and she's our favorite candidate for screening because she has very small tissue. Tumors would show up very easily in a patient like this," says Dr. Gail Santucci, diagnostic radiologist with Lee Memorial Health System. Breast tissue breaks down into 4 categories based on their density. From predominately fatty to predominately dense. Studies found the roughly 10% of women with dense breasts have a 4-6 fold increased risk of cancer. And their makeup may make it harder to spot. "Right. There have been studies looking at adding ultrasound in screening in women with dense breast tissue. They have shown that you can detect more cancers in those women by adding another modality, whether its ultrasound or MRI to the screening," says Dr. Santucci. Good news is, research finds these women don't face a higher death risk than others with more fatty tissue. It does make one thing clear. The importance of vigilant monitoring. "Absolutely, I think any attention to women's health, particularly breast imaging is a positive thing. The more women are aware of this issue, the better decisions they can make," says Dr. Santucci.

On June 3rd, 2018 the results of the largest breast cancer trial reported results that help us better determine who MAY benefit or MAY NOT benefit from chemotherapy in early stage, favorable breast cancers. The results help patients and physicians better interpret the results from the genomic assay, Oncotype DX, which is commonly used in the United States. The trial concludes that most patients with an "Intermediate Recurrence Score" result may avoid chemotherapy. The results were also released for publication by the New England Journal of Medicine. Journal Article Link: https://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMoa1804710 Video Outlining the TAILORx Clinical Trial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=orwPgT0ZP_0&t=14s What is a genomic test? These sophisticated tests are performed on a small sample of cancer tissue in appropriate patients with early stage breast cancer. Genomic tests are usually ordered after surgery when the pathology report is finalized. It measures unique aspects of the tumor to determine if a patient will benefit from chemotherapy in addition to hormonal therapy. Such “genomic assays” developed over the last decade are a dramatic advance in breast cancer care. The Oncotype DX assay by Genomic Health Inc. is the most utilized genomic assay of those available in the United States. Who should consider a genomic test? Patients who have small “Estrogen receptor positive” (ER+) and “HER2 receptor negative” (HER2-) tumors and no evidence of cancer in their lymph nodes may benefit from an Oncotype DX assay. The purpose of this test is to better identify people who do and do not benefit from chemotherapy. The decision to undergo chemotherapy is a complicated one. Your medical oncologist will examine multiple factors to help determine if you will benefit from chemotherapy. The NCCN Guidelines, listed in the website links below, outline in much greater detail recommendations for the use of genomic tests. An Oncotype DX test can be instrumental in this decision for many patients. You may qualify for a Genomic Assay if… You have early stage cancer (Stage I or II) Your tumor is Estrogen receptor positive (ER+) Your tumor is Her2 receptor negative (HER2-) No cancer was found in your lymph nodes You are willing to consider having chemotherapy You are healthy enough to undergo chemotherapy How is chemotherapy tailored to patients? Genomic breast cancer tests are a leap forward in our ability to “look inside” breast cancer cells. Sophisticated breast cancer care is based upon the principle of providing maximal benefit from the least toxic therapy. Newly diagnosed breast cancer patients deserve the best information available to decide whether they need chemotherapy. Take our video lesson on “Will I Need Chemotherapy?“ (here) to understand the general concepts. Genomics is a promising and rapidly developing field. Take Home Message: Make sure to ask both your breast surgeon and medical oncologist if a genomic assay might play a role in your treatment decisions. For appropriate patients, these tests should be considered only one piece of the many “pieces of the puzzle” in deciding treatment decisions about chemotherapy and hormonal therapy.

Submit your question now at, ‪http://www.breastcanceranswers.com/ask‬ In this clip, Jay Harness, MD, FACS explains what a pathologist does. A pathologist is a critical and key member of the team that treats breast cancer. Pathologists are physicians. They have been trained to dissect and analyze tissue that's been removed from the body or blood, for that matter. Pathologists are critical in breast cancer, and having expert pathologist in breast cancer is very, very important because there are many subtleties in the diagnosis of breast cancer, and so having a well-trained pathologist is important. In the operating room everyday, I am working with a pathologist. I may send a lump over for the pathologist to visually look at and tell me that the tissue around the lump is okay. Pathologists are involved when I am operating and doing frozen sections, which is a wrap and analysis of lymph nodes, and let me know if they are involved or not. The final pathology report is what's key in the final staging of breast cancer. So is my breast cancer stage-1, or stage-2, or whatever it is, and determining the extent of the breast cancer within the breast is a critical duty of the pathologist and the physician's assistants who work with pathologists.

Treatment For Lung Cancer in Madurai | Diagnosis Of Lung Cancer | Lung Cancer Therapy India
Check Our Website @ http://cancer-treatment-madurai.com/ Lung cancer is the uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells that start off in one or both lungs; usually in the cells that line the air passages. The abnormal cells do not develop into healthy lung tissue, they divide rapidly and form tumors. As tumors become larger and more numerous, they undermine the lung’s ability to provide the bloodstream with oxygen. There are two main types of lung cancer like Non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) and Small cell lung cancer. NSCLC is the most common type of lung cancer. If the lung cancer is made up of both types, it is called mixed small cell/large cell cancer. Lung cancer is the deadliest type of cancer for both men and women. Each year, more people die of lung cancer than of breast, colon, and prostate cancers combined. It is more common in older adults. It is rare in people under age 45. Guru Multispecialty Hospital, Madurai, Tamilnadu, India is a comprehensive cancer center with state-of-the-art technologies.

Diagnosing Cancer in 15 Minutes or Less -Cause/Action: Raj Krishnan at TEDxSanDiego 2012
Dr. Raj Krishnan, co-founder and CEO of Biological Dynamics, Inc., believes that early detection through blood-based biomarkers is the hidden key to curing cancer. Still in the early years of his scientific career, he has developed an easy method of isolation, concentration, and detection of DNA and nanoparticles directly from human blood, which breaks through the barriers of current ineffective and costly detection methods. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

Social Worker Diagnosed with Rare Cancer Only Seen in 1% of all Cancer Patients
What was originally thought to be a common, benign tumor turned out to be something that is diagnosed in only 1% of all cancer patients. Chris Cotton, a social worker in Weld County, was diagnosed with soft tissue sarcoma on June 3rd after having his fatty tumor on his thigh biopsied. These types of tumors are deceiving because they do not inhibit the person’s physical abilities and they cause virtually no pain. However, in rare cases, these tumors can be cancerous and potentially fatal. After his diagnosis, Chris was told that he would need the tumor removed. After having a majority of the tumor surgically removed, Chris was later referred to Dr. Ronald Hugate, an orthopedic surgeon at The Denver Clinic at Presbyterian/St. Luke’s Medical Center who specializes in dealing with this rare type of cancer. Dr. Hugate extended the margins around Chris’ tumor to preserve the healthy tissue from becoming potentially cancerous. After Chris’ second procedure, he has a positive outlook on his condition. Chris encourages everyone to be aware of these types of tumors and to get them checked out, even if they don’t appear to cause any problems. July is Sarcoma Awareness month, and Chris shows that awareness is the most powerful tool to keep dangerous cancers like sarcoma from causing fatal harm.
