Appropriate Management of Molecular Subtypes of Diffuse Large B-Cell Lymphoma
#cancernetwork   #leukemia   #lymphoma   #jounalONCOLOGY  

In recent years, we have made huge strides in our understanding of the molecular complexity of diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL). New technologies, such as gene expression profiling, RNA interference screening, and DNA sequencing, have identified several new signaling pathways and therapeutic targets for drug development. While we once considered DLBCL to be a single disease entity, recent insights have helped identify the existence of at least three distinct molecular diseases: a germinal center B-cell–like subtype, an activated B-cell–like subtype, and a primary mediastinal B-cell lymphoma subtype. All three subtypes originate from different stages of B-cell differentiation and are characterized by distinct mechanisms of oncogenic activation. This classification of DLBCL has laid the foundation for the development of new agents and novel strategies that target individual subtypes.

Large Renal Mass: A Challenge for the Urologist
#cancernetwork   #Oncology   #kidneycancer  

A 60-year-old man was incidentally found to have a large right renal mass during a CT scan with and without intravenous and oral contrast ordered by his primary care physician to evaluate mild right side abdominal discomfort and hepatomegaly. Medical and surgical history was significant for scoliosis with chronic lower back pain, as well as gastric cancer treated with surgery and chemotherapy more than 15 years ago. The patient’s family history included diabetes mellitus type 2 and breast cancer in his mother, but no history of renal or prostate cancer.

Viagra Use Linked With Increased Risk for Melanoma
#cancernetwork   #melanoma  

Men who used the phosphodiesterase (PDE) 5A inhibitor sildenafil (Viagra) had an 84% increased risk for developing melanoma even after adjusting for known risk factors, according to the results of a prospective study published in JAMA: Internal Medicine.

Living Alone Increased Men’s Risk for Late-Stage Melanoma
#cancernetwork   #melanoma  

Living alone increased a man’s risk for being diagnosed with later stage melanoma by more than 40%, according to the results of a Swedish study published recently in the Journal of Clinical Oncology. The study also showed an increased risk for women living alone, but it was not as high as that of men.
