What is Paucicellular?

What is Paucicellular?

The paucicellular variant of anaplastic carcinoma is an infrequent type of thyroid tumor. It was described as a tumor characterized by very low cellularity and prominent fibrosis, probably secondary to extensive infarction.

Is dysplasia benign or malignant?

A term used to describe the presence of abnormal cells within a tissue or organ. Dysplasia is not cancer, but it may sometimes become cancer. Dysplasia can be mild, moderate, or severe, depending on how abnormal the cells look under a microscope and how much of the tissue or organ is affected.

What is moderate cytoplasm?

Large numbers of round cells with variable amounts of moderately basophilic cytoplasm. The cytoplasm often contains small punctate vacuoles. Nuclei are round to polygonal with coarse chromatin and one or two large prominent nucleoli. These tumors may be located in or around the genitalia or nasal cavity.

What does abnormal cytology mean?

Cells that appear abnormal in your urine may also indicate inflammation in the urinary tract or cancer of the bladder, kidney, ureter, or urethra. However, an abnormal urine cytology result can’t diagnose these diseases. Additional tests are usually necessary to confirm the diagnosis.

What is the role of cytology?

“Pre-cancer” means cell changes which if left untreated may develop into a true cancer. Cytology can also be used to diagnose many non-cancerous medical conditions such as infections and systemic diseases.

What are the signs of dysplasia?

What are the signs and symptoms of hip dysplasia?

  • Pain in the hip.
  • Loose or unstable hip joint.
  • Limping when walking.
  • Unequal leg lengths.

Can dysplasia be cured?

In most cases, mild dysplasia resolves on its own and doesn’t become cancerous. Your doctor may recommend follow-up in a year to check for additional changes. If you have severe dysplasia (CIN II or III), your doctor may recommend treatment, such as surgery or other procedures to remove the abnormal cells.

Why is a second biopsy needed?

When you face a serious diagnosis like cancer or one that requires surgery, it’s a good idea to get a medical second opinion on the interpretation of your biopsy. That second opinion can confirm the original diagnosis and treatment plan or, in some cases, change the diagnosis.

What happens if you test positive for HPV twice?

Once your HPV tests come back negative, continuing with regular Pap and HPV tests mean any abnormalities that develop later can be found and treated before they become cancer. If you got a positive HPV test and your Pap test was abnormal, your doctor will probably follow up with a colposcopy.
