ABCD's of MELANOMA

submitted by: camdic
FOXNEWS.COM HOME > HEALTH. Monday, February 25, 2008. ABCD's of Melanoma. Malignant Melanoma is the most aggressive of malignant cutaneous tumours. Cases with lymphonode involvement, and distant metastases, carry a very poor prognosis, (50% and 20% respectively alive in 5 years), while those presenting without evident lymphonode involvement have a much better survival rate (60% alive in 5 years). It is therefore extremely important to do early malignant melanoma diagnosis. There...

WERNER SYNDROME

submitted by: camdic
German physician Otto Werner (1879-1936) described the clinical picture of this syndrome in 1904, in four sisters, defining the skin thin, tight, scleroderma-like, that mimics premature aging, with bilateral cataracts associated. Also known with the term Progeria, "Prematurely Old" greek derivation, due to the fact that usually presents wrinkling and aging of face. Progeria occurs in two forms: Progeria of childhood, described by Jonathan Hutchinson (1886) and Hastings Gilford (1897),...

Lung Cancer Risks raised by Genetic Variations

submitted by: mdanderson

A research team led by scientists at MD Anderson Cancer Center report that 2 specific common inherited
genetic variations are associated with increased risk of lung cancer for smokers and former smokers.
Dr. Amos talks about how the findings are a major step forward in identifying those at high risk for
non-small cell lung cancer and for understanding how smoking and genetic factors interact to cause the disease.
