is thyroidectomy the ONLY way to determine if a papillary lesion / follicular neoplasm is benign or malignant?
My wife recently underwent FNAB for the thyroid gland and the findings were:
1. PAPILLARY LESION
2. FOLLICULAR NEOPLASM.
Suggest thyroidectomy for a definitive diagnosis.
Smears disclose a fairly cellular aspirate composed of cohesive clusters of follicular cells, in attempt to form acini and short papillary fronds. The cells show vesicular nuclei, with focal areas of pleomorphism. The background is hemorrhagic containing thin colloid materials and few mixed leukocytes.
I really would like to know if the it is benign or malignant but is there any other way besides invasive surgery? Thanks a lot in advance for all the answers and help.
If FNAB demonstrate follicular neoplasm , we must perform thyroid lobectomy for determining if it's malignant or not , and regarding to this , we will design the further definite and main operation .
There is no way other than this yet .
In some situations , we can perform total thyroidectomy as a plan to determine the permanent pathology at first ( there is several indications : old patients , mass more than 4 cm , ... ) .
But about Papillary neoplasm it's somewhat different : we can plan for a definite operation , also with a FNAB . (+ info
How do you treat superior orbital fissure syndrome when the etiology is a neoplasm?
It's for school and I can't find the answer anywhere!
Superior orbital fissure syndrome consists of retro-orbital pain, paralysis of extra ocular muscles, impairment of first trigeminal branches and frequent involvement of the optic nerve.
One must treat the neoplasm. That depends on its type. A glioblastoma would be treated differently from a lymphoma for example. (+ info
is yellow spit up okay after having surgery for jejunal atresia?
My newborn son was born with a ruptured intestine ( Jejunal Atresia) and went through surgery twice the 1st time he had surgery he was recovering pretty well and they discharged him from the NICU so the 1st week he came home after his feedings i would burp him and after his burp would be yellow spit up and the amount would be a mouthful and that was like after all his feedings and towards the end of the week i asked my Doctor if that was okay and she wasn't too sure so she called the ped surgeon who worked on my son and he ended up having to be readmitted back into the NICU and went through another surgery same intestine but different area due to no blood circulation so he said. Now my son has finally come home again last weds and my concern is that on thurs after one feeding and being burped he had spit up a mouthful of yellow once and that was it all the other spit up was the color of milk (my breastmilk) which he really hasn't been spitting up period and thats better at least its not so consistent like it was last time. same thing for friday after one feeding and being burped and today (saturday) he had none until we went to the store and he was in his car seat a small amount came out. I know that usually when you have a jejunal atresia the spit up would be green which is bile and he has not spit up any of that i'm just a little paranoid and scared cause i don't want history to repeat itself. But this time around he is tolerating all his feedings and is Pooing very well So can someone tell me if this is normal or if its him taking its time to fully recover please at least for my mind to be put at ease cause i am still waiting to schedule a follow up with my ped surgeon.... =(
This is a few days late, so have probably called the pediatrician by now. I don't like the sound of yellow spit up or vomit. Especially since it was a problem last time. What color is your baby's poop? Is it about the same color? How about the smell? With any abdominal surgery the bowels slow down, if the food isn't going through as fast as it should it could be backing up and coming out the other way.
I would call the surgeon or pediatrician and see what they want to do. God bless you and your son! (+ info
Is thyroidectomy advisable if your FNAB states that 'follicular neoplasm cannot be totally ruled out'?
In Ultrasound results, there are no calsifications
presence of complex solid nodules
3.1 x 2.1 x 1.8 cm size of solid nodular
I would think it would be the smart choice. There's no point in risking possible malignant neoplasms in such a pertinant area. I'd also get a second opinion and set of tests. (+ info
Info on Neoplasms?
I'm researching Neoplasms, and I'm having difficulty finding the information I need. I'm leaning more Benign Neoplasms.
What I need is:
Outcomes or Effects
I know it sounds like I havn't done anything, but I'm trying really hard, and I can't seem to find anything, so I'd really appreciate it if you could at least give me a source with the information.
Thanks in advance.
I now have Treatment, and Cause. Thanks :)

In using the neoplasm table, what do you do when there is no code in cancer in situ?
When using the neoplasm table in the ICD-9-CM, how would one code cancer in situ of the temporal lobe?
You'll never find it there.
What you're probably looking for is under skin: Ca in situ of temple or similar. (+ info
I had an MRI done and the Dr. wrote down I have a "Neoplasm of occioital bone". What does that mean?
I searched the web and believe "occioital bone" may be a misspelling or abbreviation. Is this something to be worried about?
Thanks! The Doctor wasnt really that nice and seemed to be in a rush. Maybe I'll ask my primary care.
Most like it was occipital bone, which is at the back of your head. I did research on "neoplasm". It means a growth or a tumor, NOT synonomous with cancer. If it was anything to be concerned about, your doctor would have told you immediately. If you're still uneasy, ask him. (+ info

Difference between pancreatic neoplasm and cystic neoplasm?
Anyone who knows, I would greatly appreciate it.
I would like for those who are in the medical profession to answer this question, or someone with real knowledge. I'm not looking for insensitive answers, simply the facts.
I must add that this is specific to a low density mass in the pancreas, very small in size. No diagnostic tests have been done other than a CT that detected it.
pancreatic neoplasm occurs in the pancreas
cystic neoplasm can occur anywhere in the body. (+ info
