Hemangiopericytoma, Including Malignant Disease Or Not?
Afternoon. From the post-op PA results, it was stated that the result was hemangiopericytoma of the ovary. Is this considered vicious? What is the percentage of cure or relapse? What is the CPI test?rnThank you.
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Hemangiopericytoma is a type of malignant growth of ovarian tissue or ovaries. This condition is characterized by the formation of easy-to-bleed lumps that can spread to other organs outside of the ovaries itself. Diagnosing this disease is not easy, and it takes the help of supporting examinations by PA (Anatomical Pathology).
While the CPI test itself is an abbreviation of the Immunohistochemistry test or immunohistochemistry in English. Immunohistochemistry is a method that involves the science of anatomy, immunology and biochemistry to identify tissue components by using the relationship between antibodies. This technique is useful for recognizing, knowing the place and character of a particular antigen and determining the diagnosis of a cancer.
Among the factors that increase the risk of developing this condition are those who:
Have a history of malignancy in the family Being an active or passive smoker Menopause Overweight or obesity
Regarding the percentage of healing, this will be determined from the degree of severity which is usually marked in the form of stages, ranging from stage I to stage IV. Where at stage I, the cancer cells have not spread, and at stage IV, the cancer cells are already in other organs. In general, the closer you get to stage IV, the harder it will be to heal. Treatment options are different at each stage.
Even so, our advice is to share these results with the doctor who has been treating you, because in the end the decision, including the treatment plan and the stage of the malignancy you have will be determined by your doctor. What is clear, you must maintain a healthy lifestyle in order to optimize the quality of life you have now, namely by avoiding stress, staying away from cigarette smoke, eating nutrient-rich foods such as vegetables and fruit, drinking plenty of water, and exercising and resting regularly. So, hopefully useful.
