Metastatic Undifferentiated Carcinoma Disease?
Good morning Doctor, I am 20 years old Neser I want to ask. Yesterday my father (56 years) had a medical check-up at the hospital because for several weeks he had a complaint in the neck, and so far it has only been treated traditionally. When I checked the results, it said that my father had metastatic undifferentiated carcinoma. nCan you explain to me what disease is it? The problem is the results sheet is in medical language, and my family doesn’t allow me to ask. N nThank you in advance
Hello, good afternoon Neser.
Carcinoma is the most common type of cancer. This cancer starts from the cells that make up the tissue in the skin or in the building blocks of the organs in the body. Like other types of cancer, carcinoma is an uncontrolled growth of a cell type. Carcinoma itself consists of several types, including the most frequent basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, adenocarcinoma, and so on. Undifferentiated carcinoma means a cancer where the cancer cells are very immature and primitive. Usually carcinomas that have this characteristic are more virulent. Metastasis means that the cancer that occurs is cancer that has spread to other organs of the body. Treatment of carcinoma can be surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, or a combination of the three.
To find out more clearly about the disease your father is experiencing, such as where the cancer cells come from, whether they come from cancer of the pharynx & larynx (throat), salivary glands, etc., as well as the stage at which you are experiencing, we strongly recommend consulting the doctor in charge. your father in person.
I hope this helps.
Greetings, dr. Denisa
