What is the significance/ importance of hyaline changes seen in leiomyoma (Benign tumor of uterus) ???

the more the hyaline change that occurs in a fibroid, the more are the chances that it will turn malignant (into leiomyosarcoma).  (+ info)

Please define "epithelioid melanocytes with large pleomorphic nuclei and prominent nucleoli"?

I was just provided this pathology report on a mole taken from my skin and don't see the doctor for a week. I'm aware it's probably treatable, just wanted some info prior to going to my doc.

Epithelioid-cell blue nevus is an unusual cytologic variant of blue nevus that has been recently described mostly in patients with Carney complex, although the lesion may also appear in patients with no evidence of Carney complex. This variant of blue nevus is composed of melanin laden large polygonal epithelioid melanocytes situated within the dermis. The neoplastic cells show no maturation with progressive descent and, in contrast with the usual stromal changes in blue nevi, epithelioid-cell blue nevus exhibits no dermal fibrosis. This report describes a congenital giant melanocytic nevus with pigmented epithelioid cells located on the back of a 2-year-old male. The lesion was present at birth and the patient had no evidence of Carney complex. Histopathologically, the lesion consisted of a large and entirely intradermal melanocytic nevus composed of heavily pigmented epithelioid melanocytes involving the full-thickness of dermis, but extending also to the subcutaneous fat and underlying soft tissues. Immunohistochemically, epithelioid neoplastic melanocytes expressed immunoreactivity for S-100 protein, HMB-45, Melan-A, NK1C3, and microphthalmia transcription factor (MiTF) antibodies. MIB-1 cellular proliferation marker was expressed in the nuclei of only a few scattered epithelioid melanocytes. This report demonstrates that epithelioid-cell blue nevus is a distinctive histopathologic variant of blue nevus that may also appear as a giant congenital melanocytic nevus.

Does anyone know of any support groups of vascualr tumors specifically epithelioid hemangioendothelioma?

I am looking for both online and traditional support groups dealing with this particular topic. I am looking to do my dissertation on this particular topic. Any help would be appreciated.

There are some message boards and sites specific to the disease:

H.E.A.R.D Support

Epithelioid Hemangioendothelioma

Rare Cancer Hemangioendothelioma

Survivor Support Story: Epithelioid Hamangioendothelioma

I've come across the disease while researching Epithelioid Sarcoma. the two share a similar name but are considered different diseases.

And, since you asked for other types of support. Epithelioid Hemangioenothelioma is considered to be a type of soft tissue sarcoma. You can check out the Sarcoma Alliance:

And, if you are seeking general support you can try Cancer Care:

Best to you.  (+ info)

I Want Know About Leiomyoma Disease, Its Cause?


The cause of uterine leiomyomas is unknown, but steroid hormones, including estrogen and progesterone, and several growth factors, including epidermal growth factor, have been implicated as regulators of leiomyoma growth. Leiomyomas typically arise after menarche and regress after menopause, implicating estrogen as a promoter of leiomyoma growth.
Uterine leiomyomas occur in 20% to 25% of women of reproductive age and reportedly affect three times as many black women as white women. The tumors become malignant (leiomyosarcoma) in only 0.1% or less of patients.  (+ info)

what relation is between leiomyoma and endometriosis?

lieomyoma is another disease

Endometriosis often co-exists with leiomyoma. Research indicates that women with endometriosis are more likely to suffer from uterine fibroids, adenomyosis, autoimmune disorders, asthma and allergies.  (+ info)

Large partially pedunculated fibroid leiomyoma 10.2 x 8.6 x 9.7 of the anterior uterus... HELP?

In a way I can tell I’m blessed why? In 2008 I used to blame myself and others who caused a car accident that I was in. I lost so much after that accident not being able to have the very good health and physic I used to have. From 162 no I weight 210. I went to so many doctors after my accident because my neck and back was really in pain. I finally found a doctor who did thank lord give me hope that everything could go back to normal. Until the other day my chiropractors to finish my treatment cause my insurance almost with no balance, he told me that he will MRI my back. When they did they found and confirmed that I had a herniated disc L5-S1 that this accident had make worst because a previous chiropractor told me I had a disc problem before 3 days before the accident etc... But that MRI for my back shows a growing mass inside my pelvic. They send me for a pelvic ultrasound. Also the days of the MRI my tummy to the right side move so much that was crazy and I was extremely dizzy. Result came like that:

Age: 26
Sex: Female

History: Pelvic pain with heavy menses.

Finding: utilizing a full urinary bladder as an acoustic window, the pelvis was evaluated and the uterus is in a normal anteverted/anteflexed orientation measuring 8.4 x 9.8 x 8.0 cm. The uterus contains a very large anterior complex leiomyoma, which measures 10.2 x 8.6 x 9.7 cm. The right and left adnexa are normal. There is no free fluid within the cul-de-sac.

Impression: There is a large soft tissue mass involving the anterior uterus almost certainly representing a large partially pedunculated leiomymoma, which measures 10.2 x 8.6x 9.7 cm. This is an otherwise normal study.

I had so many symptoms related to this now I realized when I make search, I though it was normal to have these symptoms or I was like that but I was in silence sick.

-I always had heavy period since a teen
-around 2 to 3 days
-only when lose weight in 2007 my period is around 5 to 6 days with no pain at all.
-sometimes painful period who changed to be worst now, and right side got worst in last 3 years with clog blood peace going aout.
-constipation on and off but now for my period this month my belly got so big and bloated and I was constipated now I started going again.
-I always fell pain when I’m ovulating like I’m having my period on my right ovaries side and pain bit after period since 1 year ½ now.
-My right side belly itch me so much when I eat sugar or bad food or fell like biting me inside to my skin.
-when I crave too much sugar and eat really too much I have a gluant mucus think like mucus and clear going out my vagina with no smell, sometimes itch lightly. When I take the GSE grapseed oil it's ok.
-under my skin all over my body something fell like stuff crawling.
-end 2007/start 2008 after doing a master cleanse I start noticing theses itch on my right side belly. And I was for 2 months on and off yeast infection diagnosed was Candida vaginitis.
-during the cleanse fell like one day my right ovary need to go out like something pulling out.
- I never tried to cleanse my body ever since.

Please God is giving an opportunity to heal myself. By showing me that I have been sick for years trough all this tragedy, I discover it. Please give me information about my condition anyone is welcome/ what food to eat and not/ what life to lead/ what supplement to takes/ what natural medicine is good/ what surgery is involved/ do this fibroids turn into cancer. HELPPPPPPP PLEASE.

I will see a doctor this Tuesday and hope better news and hope he tells I will be able to have 1 baby.

You need to direct these questions to your doctor.

Generally, people on Answer Yahoo aren't intelligent enough to write complete sentences, much less offer medical advice, answer questions or give opinions.

Good luck... wait til Tuesday!!!!!!  (+ info)

im sooooo scared?????/

Hi there !! Apparently a leiomyoma is a benign tumor (meaning non-cancerous) derived from smooth muscle and is most often found in the uterus .............. judging from that description I would say that your Doctor left it there because to do anything with it would be unecessary surgery ........... that is, of course, unless you are experiencing discomfort from it.
