    Coexistence of metastasis from squamous cell carcinoma and tuberculosis within lymph nodes is rare. We report a case of 86 years old woman with a mass in the left laterocervical region. The patient had undergone excision of a poorly differentiated squamous cell carcinoma from the mucosa of the...

    Reliable staging of the neck is an important factor for the estimation of prognosis of head and neck cancer patients. A total of 608 patients with oral squamous cell carcinomas treated from March 1975 to December 2000 were enrolled. In radical neck dissection (RND) group, the number of lymph...

    We performed a multicenter longitudinal study using our neck dissection questionnaire (NDQ) and arm abduction test (AAT) to assess the impact of rehabilitation and surgical modification on postoperative quality of life (QOL). Patients who had undergone neck dissection for the treatment of head...

    Background and purpose: Dysregulated miRNAs play an important role in many malignant tumors. However, elucidating the roles of miRNAs in cancer biology, especially in epithelial cancers, remains an ongoing process. In this study, we identified the differentially expressed miR-645 in the...

    Metastasis to regional lymph nodes constitutes the main route toward progression and dissemination of head and neck carcinoma; at the same time it is the most significant adverse prognostic indicator for this disease. In recent years, significant focus has been given on the molecular mechanisms...

  • Restoration of caveolin-1 expression suppresses growth and metastasis of head and neck squamous cell carcinoma. Zhang, H; Su, L; Müller, S; Tighiouart, M; Xu, Z; Zhang, X; Shin, H J C; Hunt, J; Sun, S-Y; Shin, D M; Chen, Z(G) // British Journal of Cancer;11/18/2008, Vol. 99 Issue 10, p1684 

    Caveolin-1 (Cav-1) plays an important role in modulating cellular signalling, but its role in metastasis is not well defined. A significant reduction in Cav-1 levels was detected in lymph node metastases as compared with primary tumour of head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) specimens...

    Purpose Lymph node metastasis (LNM) is a strong prognostic factor in many solid cancers, including head and neck squamous cell carcinomas (HNSCC), and LNM can be dependent upon primary tumor biology, as well as tumor dimension. Here, we investigate the relative risk of LNM in accordance to tumor...

  • Increased Expression of Flotillin-2 Protein as a Novel Biomarker for Lymph Node Metastasis in Nasopharyngeal Carcinoma. Wen, Qiuyuan; Li, Jiao; Wang, Weiyuan; Xie, Guiyuan; Xu, Lina; Luo, Jiadi; Chu, Shuzhou; She, Lei; Li, Duo; Huang, Donghai; Fan, Songqing // PLoS ONE;Jul2014, Vol. 9 Issue 7, p1 

    Nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) is a head and neck malignant tumor rare throughout most of the world but common in Southeast Asia, especially in Southern China. Flotillin-2 (Flot-2) is not only an important component of cellular membrane, but also involves in various cellular processes such as...

    Carcinoma of unknown primary of the neck (CUP) is a metastasis presenting in one or more cervical lymph nodes, with no primary mucosal site identified. Retrospective case notes review of 25 consecutive patients (median age 55, 72 % males) diagnosed as CUP who underwent neck dissection in a UK...
