metastasis in breast of renal cell carcinoma

Nektarios Koufopoulos, Despoina Nasi, Foteini Antoniadou, Stefania Kokkali, Stamatios Theocharis
Ovarian metastasis is common with secondary tumors representing up to 15% of ovarian neoplasms. The malignancies most commonly involving the ovaries are carcinomas of the stomach, colon, breast, endocervix, endometrium, and lymphoma. Secondary ovarian involvement by kidney carcinoma occurs very rarely and is usually associated with widespread dissemination. We conducted a review of kidney carcinoma with ovarian metastasis in the literature using the keywords clear cell renal cell carcinoma, papillary renal cell carcinoma, chromophobe renal cell carcinoma collecting duct carcinoma, and ovarian metastasis on Google Scholar and PubMed indices in April 2018, including a case diagnosed in our department...

OBJECTIVEPreoperative stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) is a feasible alternative to postoperative SRS and may lower the risk of radiation necrosis (RN) and leptomeningeal disease (LMD) recurrence. The study goal was to report the efficacy and toxicity of preoperative SRS in an expanded patient cohort with longer follow-up period relative to prior reports.METHODSThe records for patients with brain metastases treated with preoperative SRS and planned resection were reviewed. Patients with classically radiosensitive tumors, planned adjuvant whole brain radiotherapy, or no cranial imaging at least 1 month after surgery were excluded...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: Disseminated tumors, known as metastases, are responsible for ninety-percent of mortality due to cancer. Epithelial to mesenchymal transition, a phenomenon required for morphological conversion of non-motile discoid shaped epithelial cells to highly motile spindle-shaped mesenchymal cells, is thought to be a pre-requisite for metastatic progression. Metastasis-associated 1 (MTA1) protein is a prime inducer of EMT and metastatic progression in all solid tumors including hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC)...

MicroRNAs (miRNAs) serve an important role in renal cancer, but renal cancer miRNA expression data remains inconsistent. Therefore, there is a requirement for integrated analysis of these data. An increasing number of studies demonstrate that miR‑122 is dysregulated in numerous cancer types, including liver, lung and breast cancer, yet its role in clear cell renal cell carcinoma (ccRCC) remains unclear. In the present study, an integrated analysis of four ccRCC miRNAs expression datasets was performed and the expression of miR‑122 in the present cohort was validated...

INTRODUCTION: Multiple tumors belong to rare cancers. Almost all malignancies may occur in combination, the most common combination being gastrointestinal cancer with respiratory or urogenital tract cancer and with breast cancer in females. CASE REPORT: In 1999, a 66-year-old patient was diagnosed with a rectosigmoid tumor histologically proven as adenocarcinoma. Rectosigmoid resection was performed, followed by adjuvant radiotherapy and the Mayo Clinic FU/FA chemotherapy regimen...

BACKGROUND: Modified nucleosides (mNS) in urine are shown to be encouraging markers in cancer, mostly in patients presenting with high tumor mass such is breast and lung cancer. To our knowledge, mNS have not been investigated in head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC). HNSCC is characterized by early metastasis into locoregional lymph nodes and slow infiltrating growth, but even in the advanced stage exhibits only a relatively low cancer volume. Therefore, reliable distinction between HNSCC and healthy controls by urinary mNS might pose substantial analytical problems and even more as patients with HNSCC mostly have an increased exposure to tobacco smoke and excessive alcohol consumption which affect the renal mNS pattern...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: The adrenal gland is a frequent site for metastasis, and a solitary adrenal mass is often observed during staging workup or imaging follow-up in patients with extra-adrenal malignancy. To create an appropriate management plan, it is essential to distinguish between benign adrenal lesions and metastasis in patients with extra-adrenal cancer having solitary adrenal masses. Therefore, here we evaluated the predictive factors for adrenal metastasis in patients with extra-adrenal malignancy having solitary adrenal mass...

Clear cell acanthoma (CCA) is a rare, benign cutaneous condition most often seen on the lower extremities. Lesions are of variable morphology and have been described as polypoid, pigmented, giant, and cystic lesions. Although no racial or gender predilection has been reported, CCA on the breast is a very rare finding that has been observed mainly in young Korean women. Herein, we describe a case of CCA of the areola in an elderly woman with metastatic renal cell carcinoma. Physical exam revealed a pink plaque with central erosions on the left areola...

Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) has the propensity to hematogenously metastasize to the lung, bone, or liver, however, metastasis to the esophagus is exceedingly rare. We report a case of ulcerative esophagitis secondary to recurrent metastatic renal cell cancer status post remote nephrectomy. An 82-year-old Caucasian male presented with dark tarry stools for two days, progressive dysphagia to solid food for several weeks and unintentional weight loss. His past medical history was significant for hypertension, diverticulosis and right-sided renal cell cancer for which he underwent nephrectomy 13 years ago...

PURPOSE OF THE REVIEW: Brain metastasis is a common complication of advanced malignancies, especially, lung cancer, breast cancer, renal cell carcinoma, and melanoma. Traditionally surgery, when indicated, and radiation therapy, either as whole-brain radiation therapy or stereotactic radiosurgery, constituted the major treatment options for brain metastases. Until recently, most of the systemic chemotherapy agents had limited activity for brain metastases. However, with the advent of small molecule tyrosine kinase inhibitors and immunotherapy agents, there has been renewed interest in using these agents in the management of brain metastases...

Oral cancers constitute approximately 2% of all cancers, with the most common histological type being oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC), representing 90% of oral cancers. Although diagnostic technologies and therapeutic techniques have progressed, the survival rate of patients with OSCC is still 60%, whereas the incidence rate has increased. Podocalyxin (PODXL) is a highly glycosylated type I transmembrane protein that is detected in normal tissues such as heart, breast, and pancreas as well as in many cancers, including lung, renal, breast, colorectal, and oral cancers...

Objective: In cases presenting with lymphadenopathies (LAP) without a primary focus detected by simple radiological methods, the primary tumor can be diagnosed by a histopathological evaluation of the metastatic lymph nodes. We aimed to discuss the nonhematological malignancies presenting with lymphadenopathies and the histopathological results for primary tumors. Material and Methods: In this retrospective study, cases diagnosed with metastasis in excisional lymph nodes between January 2013 and June 2016 were assessed for a histopathological diagnostic approach...

Canonical TGF-β1 signalling promotes tumor progression by facilitating invasion and metastasis, whereby release of TGF-β1, by (for example) infiltrating immune cells, induces epithelial to mesenchymal transition (EMT). PAX2, a member of the Paired box family of transcriptional regulators, is normally expressed during embryonic development, including in the kidney, where it promotes mesenchymal to epithelial transition (MET). PAX2 expression is silenced in many normal adult tissues. However, in contrast, PAX2 is expressed in several cancer types, including kidney, prostate, breast, and ovarian cancer...

Lysine demethylase 3A (KDM3A), also known as JMJD1A, has been associated with metastasis and poor prognosis in several cancer types, including renal cell carcinoma, prostate cancer and Ewing sarcoma. However, little is known regarding the clinicopathological significance of KDM3A expression in breast cancer (BCa). To investigate the clinical relevance of KDM3A expression in the setting of BCa, immunohistochemistry was performed on a tissue microarray consisting of 150 commercially available BCa samples. No significant correlation was identified between KDM3A expression and various clinicopathological variables, including clinical stage, pathological grade, tumor size and the expression statuses of human epidermal growth factor receptor 2, estrogen receptor, and progesterone receptor...

Intramammary metastasis of renal cell carcinoma (RCC) is extremely rare, accounting for only 1.5% of all intramammary metastases. Distinguishing intramammary metastases from benign tumors and breast cancer is clinically problematic. Some patients undergo excessive surgery after a misdiagnosis of breast cancer instead of a mammary tumor. We performed a core needle biopsy (CNB) of a breast mass that developed in a 71-year-old woman after surgeries for bilateral RCC and breast cancer, leading to a diagnosis of intramammary metastasis of RCC...

The chemokine receptor CXCR4 and its ligand stromal cell-derived factor-1 (SDF-1/CXCL12) are important players in the cross-talk among lymphoma, myeloma and leukemia cells and their microenvironments. In hematological malignancies and solid tumors, the overexpression of CXCR4 on the cell surface has been shown to be responsible for disease progression, increasing tumor cell survival and chemoresistance and metastasis to organs with high CXCL12 levels (e.g., lymph nodes and bone marrow (BM)). Furthermore, the overexpression of CXCR4 has been found to have prognostic significance for disease progression in many type of tumors including lymphoma, leukemia, glioma, and prostate, breast, colorectal, renal, and hepatocellular carcinomas...

Following breast and lung cancers, renal cell carcinoma (RCC) is the third most frequent cancer to metastasize to the head and neck region, though such cases are rarely reported. Distinguishing between malignant tumors of salivary gland origin and metastatic RCC is very important. The case of a 75-year-old man with an oral cavity lesion in the left buccal submucosa measuring 40×30 mm that had grown substantially over several weeks is presented. His medical history included left kidney cancer 26 years earlier and a malignant myoepithelioma of the left buccal region 7 years earlier...

Cutaneous and intraoral metastasis from any malignancy is not common. Cutaneous spread is usually noted in 5%-10% of high-grade malignancies, as in carcinoma breast, lung, colon, ovary, and malignant melanoma. Only 4.6% cases of cutaneous spread are from renal cell carcinoma (RCC). Intraoral spread from RCC is much rarer with an incidence of approximately 1% of all malignant oral tumors, noted sometimes in tongue, palate, buccal mucosa, gingiva, and lips. RCC is a highly aggressive tumor which requires early diagnosis for increasing the chance of cure...

We report a case of a patient with triple synchronous primary malignancies (breast, colon, kidney) which has not been previously reported in the literature. A 70-year-old woman was diagnosed with invasive ductal carcinoma of the left breast with axillary lymph node metastasis. During the staging period, renal cell carcinoma on the left kidney and mucinous adenocarcinoma in the proximal colon were found. Since the breast tumour demonstrated favourable biology, aromatase inhibitor therapy had been started and simultaneous right colectomy and left nephrectomy was performed...
