Natural Cancer Cure? Tumor Inhibitor? Madrid, Spain: Compounds in marijuana inhibit malignant brain tumor growth in animals, and may provide a potential therapy for human glioma patients, according to a clinical review appearing in the September issue of Neuropharmacology. "Current therapeutic strategies for the treatment of [gliomas] are usually ineffective or just palliative," researchers from the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at Madrid's Complutense University wrote. "During the last few years, several studies have shown that cannabinoids ... slow the growth of different types of tumours, including gliomas, in laboratory animals. Cannabinoids induce apoptosis (programmed cell death) of glioma cells [in vitro.] In addition, cannabinoid treatment inhibits angiogenesis (growth) of gliomas in vivo. Remarkably, cannabinoids kill glioma cells selectively and can protect non-transformed glial cells from death. These and other findings reviewed here might set the basis for a potential use of cannabinoids in the management of gliomas." Last year, a clinical review in the journal Nature Reviews Cancer made similar recommendations, noting that cannabinoids possess a "favorable drug safety profile" and have shown in clinical trials to inhibit various forms of cancerous tumors, including gliomas, lung carcinoma, breast cancer, skin cancer, thyroid cancer, lymphoma, and prostate cancer.

Radiofrequency Ablation of a Kidney Tumor Studies of patients with kidney cancer have shown that radiofrequency ablation, a minimally invasive, kidney-sparing procedure, can be a successful treatment option for patients whose cancer has not spread beyond the kidney. The treatment uses computed tomography for guidance during percutaneous placement of a needle-shaped electrode into the tumor. Radiofrequency current is then passed through the electrode to heat the tumor tissue and ablate -- or eliminate -- it.
BRAIN TUMOR - TUMOR CEREBRAL -The diagnosis once cast a pall of despair over its victims, who had little hope and few options for recovery. However, neurosurgical research and innovative treatments are beginning to change that view. "We know so much more about brain tumors then we did 10 years ago," said John Jane Sr., MD, PhD, Editor of the American Association of Neurological Surgeons" Journal of Neurosurgery and a neurosurgeon in Virginia, "We still have a lot to learn, especially since brain tumors remain one of the least understood and difficult to treat tumors.But, there have been advances in how we diagnose brain tumors and how we treat brain tumors." What is a brain tumor? A brain tumor is a cluster of abnormal cells growing in the brain. Brain tumors can be benign (non-cancerous) or malignant (cancerous). They can start growing in the brain - a primary tumor, or they can be formed when cancer cells from another part of the body travel to the brain - a metastatic brain tumor. Approximately half of all primary brain tumors are benign. All metastatic brain tumors are malignant. More than 110000 people are diagnosed each year with a brain tumor. Approximately 80000 of tumors are metastatic. There are more than a dozen different types of brain tumors and they are classified by level of malignancy, size and degree to which the cancer has spread. First, metastatic brain tumors often are formed when cancers of the lung, breast, colon, prostate and skin spread to the brain. Improvements in treating ...

Brain Tumor Surgery Metastatic brain tumors are cancerous tumors that travel to the brain from other sites in the body. They are generally well-encapsulated (ie do not send fingers into the brain) and can be effectively resected during surgery. Surgery followed by radiation therapy has been found to significantly improve survival in patients with single metastatic brain tumors. Modern stereotactic and microsurgical techniques allow for rapid recovery from these operations. Radiosurgery is another option for treatment of these tumors. For more information, visit .

ENDOSCOPIC (NON-SURGICAL) REMOVAL OF MULTIPLE LARGE TUMORS F ENDOSCOPIC (NON-SURGICAL) REMOVAL OF MULTIPLE LARGE TUMORS FROM STOMACH IN A PATIENT WITH PEUTZ-JEGHERS SYNDROME PEUTZ-JEGHERS SYNDROME: Peutz-Jeghers syndrome (PJS) is a familial syndrome consisting of mucocutaneous pigmentation, gastrointestinal polyposis and cancers of gut & other sites like breast, ovary, and testes. PJS has an autosomal dominant inheritance with variable and incomplete penetrance. Germline mutations of STK11/LKB1 gene on 19p cause this syndrome. Mucocutaneous pigmentation may be noted in early infancy. These deposits of melanin are most commonly found around the mouth, nose, lips, buccal mucosa, hands, and feet, and may also be present in peri*** and genital areas. PJS polyps may be found in stomach, small intestine, or colon, but they tend to be prominent in the small intestine. These polyps may increase in size and cause small intestinal obstruction or intussusceptions that may occur in early infancy. Acute upper gastrointestinal bleeding and chronic faecal blood may complicate the disease. PATIENT: The patient was a 25 yr male who had mucocutaneous pigmentation and multiple polyps in the stomach and duodenum. He presented with bleeding from gastric polyps. As the polyps in stomach were numerous, (more than 20 in number) and were large in size (some equal to small egg size), he had been advised to undergo surgery. Surgery planned was total gastrectomy. PROCEDURE: The patient underwent video-endoscopy of the esophagus, stomach and ...

The Carotid Body Tumor THE CAROTID BODY TUMOR Introduction: Among the nonchromaffin paragangliomas, the carotid body tumor is second in frequency to the glomus jugulare tumor. Despite the large number of published cases, these tumors are relatively uncommon. Several authors have suggested that the carotid body tumor represents a proliferative response of the normal organ to some unknown disturbance within the nervous system, rather than a true neoplasm. Bungeler (1952) suggested that this was some form of adaptive hyperplasia, which was produced by traumatic destruction of the cortical projection fields of the X nerve. In contrast to this hypothesis, is the realization that a significant number of these lesions undergo malignant transformation with metastasis, which establishes the carotid body tumor as a true neoplasm. Study of the familial occurrence of chemodectomas has established a definite genetic influence in the development of these neoplasms. This hereditary factor is especially prominent in multicentric cases. Saldana et al. (1973) found that chemodectomas were 10 times more frequent in high-altitude dwellers than in sea-level residents. They proposed that hypoxia, acting from birth, served as a stimulus for chemoreceptor tissue hyperplasia, which eventually led to tumor formation. Epidemiology: These tumors have been reported in all stages of life. There appears to be a slight predilection for women in the incidence of these tumors. There is no preferential laterality. Clinical ...
Fibroid Tumors- What are they? What are Fibroids?: Fibroids are benign growths in the uterus. Depending on their location, symptoms of fibroids may be heavy menstrual bleeding, pain, or pressure on the bladder, bowels or back. Fibroids are the most common benign tumor in humans, affecting 40% of women over 40 years of age. They are the reason for one third of all hysterectomies [removal of the uterus] performed each year in the United States. Slightly larger numbers of African American women are affected with fibroids, but they cause suffering for women of all ages and ethnic groups. Symptoms of Fibroids: Uterine fibroids cause different symptoms depending on the fibroids size and position within the uterus. Fibroids may be within the wall, where they are called intramural fibroids. They can be outside the uterus, where they are termed subserosal fibroids. If the fibroids are within the cavity of the uterus they are referred to as submucous fibroids. Submucous fibroids often cause heavy bleeding. Such fibroids need not be large to cause life threatening bleeding. Menstrual bleeding may be very heavy, or a patient may have bleeding outside of the regular cycle of period bleeding. Such fibroids may also cause a woman who is pregnant to miscarry. Subserous and intramural fibroids often cause pain and pressure in the pelvic area. Patients complain that their fibroids cause them to urinate often, and not completely empty their bladder. Similarly, fibroids in this position may cause pressure on the rectum ...

Intelligent Design? Blood Vessels Help Tumors Grow angiogene Intelligent Design? A scientist begins by asking a question that can be answered by gathering evidence. Questions arise in all sorts of ways: for example, from observations, unexpected results, or the research findings of others. The scientist then develops an initial hypothesis, or possible answer to the question, arrived at based on past research or experience. In exploring the complex biology that enables cancerous tumors to grow, Dr. Judah Folkman formed his initial hypothesis based on decades of research. He suggested that tumors themselves can induce the formation of blood vessels, which in turn nourish the tumors. This phenomenon is called angiogenesis.

Brain Tumor Surgery This University of Washington program profiles an innovative surgical technique for maintaining the speech and language skills of a brain tumor patient. The program introduces viewers to Deborah Kelley, a remarkable patient who bravely allows a camera to follow her for several weeks, from her initial consultation at the UW Medical Center's Neurosurgery clinic and then into surgery. Deborah undergoes an awake surgery, which allows the neurosurgeon to pinpoint the exact location of her brain tumor, a technique called functional brain mapping. Kelley's case received an in-depth review by the University of Washington Medical Center's Neuro-Oncology Tumor Board, a multi-disciplinary group of neurosurgeons, radiation oncologists, neuropathologists, brain tumor researchers and social workers. The Neuro-Oncology Tumor Board has created a passionate and comprehensive approach to patient care centering on the role of the medical team, who guide the patient, and their family, from pre-operative tests to post operative diagnosis and treatment.
