All What does this mean: moderately differentiated carcinoma messages
On the 15th of this month I received a biopsy on my right axillary lymph node. It had been gradually swelling for the past 6 months. This along with drenching night sweats is what prompted a Dr visit. On the 22nd, the pathologist stated that my biopsy contained " poorly differentiated" cells.
What does well and poorly differentiated mean in terms of cancer and its prognosis?
Differentiation refers to the series of steps that a cell goes through to become mature. As a cell develops, it begins to show its own purpose and role in the human body, a process known as differentiation. Fully differentiated cells are the ones we learn about in basic biology: red blood cells, brain cells or neurons or muscle cells, for instance.
Carcinoma is a category of types of cancer that develop from epithelial cells. Carcinomas occur when the DNA of a cell is damaged or altered and the cell begins to grow uncontrollably and become malignant. As of , no simple and comprehensive classification system has been devised and accepted within the scientific community. There are a large number of rare subtypes of anaplastic, undifferentiated carcinoma.
