Is Adenocarcinoma Including Malignant Cancer Or Not?
In the afternoon … I want to ask whether Adenocarcinoma is malignant cancer or not?
Hello. Good afternoon, thank you for asking to HealthReplies.com.
Adenocarcinoma is a type of carcinoma that refers to the condition of cancer or malignant tumors originating from epithelial lining cells (cells in the outermost organs) with glandular cell types. Glandular cell types are cells that produce certain substances and are found in almost all organs of the body, some of which and most commonly found in malignant tumors are the lung, colorectal, breast, esophagus, prostate and pancreas.
The process that occurs in adenocarcinoma is the process of overgrowth of the glandular cells due to being triggered by several risk factors so that the cells become too numerous and have a malignant nature that will continue to grow and develop. Related risk factors are obesity, smoking, low consumption of fiber, family history, and alcohol.
Some other types of carcinomas are
- Basal cell carcinoma, a malignant tumor on the part of the basal cell that is often found in the outer skin
- Squamous cell carcinoma, a malignant, flat cell tumor that can be found on the skin or internal organs
- Ductal cell carcinoma, which is a malignant tumor in duct cells that is most often found in breast organs
- transitional cell carcinoma, a malignant tumor in the lining cells that changes shape and is often found in the bladder organs
Symptoms experienced by patients will vary depending on the location of the adenocarcinoma, in general will experience conditions that are easily tired, significant weight loss, and sometimes accompanied by pain.
If you experience these symptoms, it is better to go to the nearest health service for further examination by a specialist oncologist, some tests that can be done are blood tests (see anemia condition, malignancy markers), photos in the form of CT scans / MRI to see the condition of the tissue, and the best is a biopsy (because you can see cell types specifically).
What can be done at home is to maintain a healthy lifestyle with healthy food and regular exercise and avoid harmful substances such as cigarettes and alcohol. This will be very good for prevention or for those who have been diagnosed with pain can also help to restore the condition other than with the help of further treatment such as chemotherapy, radiotherapy, and surgery.
In the event that conditions are very weak, congested, difficult to communicate with, decreased awareness, extreme pain should be immediately taken to the nearest emergency room health care for immediate treatment.
