FAQ - adenoma, acidophil
(Powered by Yahoo! Answers)


my neice was just diagnosed with adenoma carcinoma, stomach, small intestine and spots on her colon, has not spread to her liver yet, planning to have surgery next week, just found out 2 days ago, what is the survival rate of this cancer

As Denisedds says, it is not good if this is a primary stomach (gastric) carcinoma.
We do not have the details of this case. We don't even know her age.
[The age is so important when people ask questions on this site.]
Sometimes you have to think of other possibilities - like an ovarian carcinoma which has spread to these areas. It is thinking outside the box - rare but possible
I might check a CA125 blood test for an ovarian primary unless the gastroenteroligst who saw the stomach lesion via endoscopy and the pathologist who looked at the biopsy slides were certain this was a primary gastric carcinoma.
Ovarian adenocarcinoma responds much better to chemotherapy than gastric cancer.

You will have a better idea after the surgery next week.
I suggest you plan to be there when the surgeon comes out of surgery and explains the findings to the family.
The surgeon and the medical oncologist who have all the details of this case should be explaining the prognosis.  (+ info)

Could I have a pituitary adenoma?

I seem to have a lot of the symptoms of a pituitary adenoma. But I'm not sure how to approach my doctor and ask about it. Here are a few: headaches, vision disturbances, irregular periods, ovarian cysts, etc.
Also, I'm not sure if they show up on regular MRI scans. Will I have to request them to take a zoomed in picture or slice? And do they go away on their own or is surgery the only option of getting rid of them?

Most pituitary tumors are adenomas. Symptoms include headache and endocrinopathies; endocrinopathies result when the tumor produces hormones or destroys hormone-producing tissue. Diagnosis is by MRI. Treatment includes correction of any endocrinopathy and surgery, radiation therapy, or dopaminergic agonists.
Consult a Neurologist.  (+ info)

Is there a herbal medicine that can help cure Pituarity Tumor ( Adenoma )and reduce lactating?

hormones unbalanced, and Pituitary being able to shrink

From my source: "There is currently insufficient available evidence on the safety and effectiveness of integrative therapies for the treatment or prevention of pituitary disorders. The integrative therapies listed below should be used only under the supervision of a qualified health care provider, and should not be used in replacement of other proven therapies or preventive measures."

The first two listed are as follows:

Arginine (L-arginine)

Since you specifically mentioned a pituitary tumor, I'm going to go ahead and assume that you have in fact have already been diagnosed with this, but I would be remiss is I didn't point out that there are a number of herbs which can actually cause Galactorrhea (lactation) as well:

Blessed thistle
Fenugreek seed
Red clover
Red raspberry

I hope the information I found helps you out with what you are looking for; good luck! :)  (+ info)

Ct scan w/contrast showed adrenal adenoma. Now MRI says no mass exists. How reliable is ct scan?

Had a ct scan of abdomen which showed a 1.4 x 2.6 cm adenoma on adrenal gland. Now MRI states no mass on adrenal gland. Concern because MRI office was not clean or professional. Could original ct scan see something that isn't really there? Can I request original radiologist of ct scan to review MRI results?

You can request it, I'm not sure if they will allow it. Ask your physician if you might benefit from a PET scan for further diagnosis. Maybe the adrenal gland mass was a cyst and it broke between the time that you had your CT and your MRI. I would definitely ask for a second opinion on both xrays. To get back to your original question, I think it is a very good idea to have both tests reviewed by the same radiologist.  (+ info)

I was dx with a pituitary adenoma i havent had a period in 2years will it be possible to have babies one day?

Am 26 I was dx with a pituitary adenoma i havent had a period in 2years am currently under treatment will i be able to have babies one day

I would question your treatment.

The reasons are many - first, you are just saying pituitary adenoma, but not exactly what type of tumor as there are many, so I am wondering if you have had enough testing to determine what you are dealing with or just an MRI. Have you had several full panels of hormones done, and are you getting any hormone supplementation?

Is your endo a neuro endo and are you seeing as well a neuro-opthomologist so that you can get your eyes checked.

Do you get copies of all your tests and reports, and keep up with all that is going on? If so, then you can switch to another doctor.

Only when and if you get your hormones optimized will you be able to consider the question of pregnancy - but you have to get a regular period back first.

I get my LH, FSH, estradiol, bioavailable testosterone, DHEA sulfate and sex binding hormones done in regards to the androgens - what do you get? But if your thyroid, cortisol or prolactin are off, they could mess with your cycle as well. When one hormone is off, many go - it is a matter of finding the source. Sometimes it gets complex and you need an expert.  (+ info)

what is the difference between an adenoma and a carcinoma?

Both are tumors that develop from epithelial cells (Cells that have a free surface on one side and are attached to tissue on the other side and contain no blood vessels). Epithelial cells line most glands and organs and the skin.

An adenoma is a specific kind of benign (non cancerous) tumor that starts on a gland or organ. While an adenoma is benign sometimes, however, adenomas develop into malignancies. When this happens, the newly malignant adenoma is called an adenocarcinoma.

A carcinoma is any cancerous tumor that develops from any epithelial cells.

what is the difference between an adrenal adenoma, and an adrenal myelolipoma?

Adrenal myelolipomas are rare and benign they are made up mainly form adipose tissue. The primary complication, which is uncommon, is spontaneous rupture of the mass, causing retroperitoneal hemorrhage. Rupture and hemorrhage also can occur following blunt trauma.

Adrenal adenomas are also benign, but they are common and wont hurt you or rupture.
