Adenocarcinoma - arising from epithelial cancer cells that can develop into absolutely any internal organ of the human body.Also, the term used to describe the adenocarcinoma tumors, affecting in the process of cancer growth in human body.Such tumors are classified according to the substances produced by them (e.g., serous or mucous-secretory adenocarcinoma) and on the microscopic arrangement of cells (papillary and follicular adenocarcinoma).
Symptoms of adenocarcinoma in the early stages of tumor development is almost completely absent.With the growth of tumors symptoms coincides with the most common symptoms of cancer lesions is - lack of appetite, lethargy, weakness, and so forth. The most common adenocarcinoma develops in the lining of the uterus, intestine, stomach, esophagus and breast.
tumor can both contain cysts, and have a firm texture.The neoplasm may develop in any internal organ and has many histological types.For example, serous and mucinous cystadenocarcinom
Adenocarcinoma of the esophagus is considered the most common type of cancer of the esophagus, often localized in the lower part with a tendency to spread to the proximal part of the stomach that is usually associated with reflux disease.
Symptoms of esophageal adenocarcinoma :
• Dysphagia (trouble swallowing).During swallowing, the patient has a feeling jammed the food for further progress in the stomach has to push fluid intake
• odynophagia (painful swallowing).Some patients with swallowing is painful, usually when food gets stuck accepted
• Changing your diet.Because of the difficulties encountered in swallowing the patients start to chew your food much longer and avoid eating meat.Some totally refuse solid food
• Unexplained weight loss
• bloody stools or vomiting, bleeding
• Pain in the chest
diagnosis of adenocarcinoma largely depends on the place of its location.For the correct diagnosis is shown to conduct a full examination of the patient, including an instrumental examination (X-ray, endoscopy, ultrasound, magnetic resonance imaging, radionuclide scintigraphy, CT and MRI, biopsy) and laboratory examination methods (clinical and biochemical blood and urine tests, tumor markers).Currently successfully used positron emission tomography, which is still in the early stages of development reveals adenocarcinoma and can guarantee a positive outcome.
Treatment of adenocarcinoma most is to perform surgery.However, before doing so you must take into account the fact that the depletion of adenocarcinoma of the body is not ready to conduct radical intervention, asThis method of treatment of the patient takes a huge amount already wasted to fight the disease forces.That is why many experts strongly recommend the introduction of a program of treatment before and after the removal of tumors of the course of physical therapy products.For example, the drug FLARAXIN not only optimizes the treatment, but also significantly reduces the operation area before the surgery.
Treatment of adenocarcinoma of the esophagus is the partial removal of the affected tumor of the esophagus.In some cases (for readings) is carried out removing the top of the stomach, of the remaining part of the esophagus that recovers deleted.At advanced stages of esophageal cancer is completely removed, and the stomach goes almost to the neck of the patient.Conducting this surgery involves the use of the open sections of the abdomen, chest or neck.
relatively new, but already well-proven treatment for cancer of the esophagus is tomotherapy.This method consists in the application of spiral tomography with circular coverage of 360 °.This scanner allows the physician to review in detail all of the changes occurring during the treatment of adenocarcinoma of the esophagus and the need to continue ongoing therapeutic measures to best protect against radiation healthy tissues.Tomotherapy is a 3-D scanner (plans precision) in combination with CT.The system provides the ability to change the shape, size, number and location of radiation delivered to the tumor.Tomotherapy well-proven in the treatment of cancers such as cancer of the esophagus and lung cancer
