Flashcards in Pulmonary Neoplasms (Handorf) Deck (25):
1

Is may be a connection between lung cancer and ____

skrokes

2

What lung cancer may appear in any part of the mung

large cell undifferentiated carcinoma
**tumor is rather large by time of Dx

3

What lung cancers have a high likelihood to metastasize?

small cell > large cell undifferentiated > others

4

"scar" carcinoma

Bronchial-derived adenocarcinoma

5

No relation to cigarette smoking

carcinod tumors

6

May be multifocal, bilateral

Adenocarcinoma in situ (Bronchioloalveolar carcinoma)

7

virtually never seen in nonsmokers

small cell carcinoma

8

if the patient coughs up some tumor cells and then aspirates them, the tumor will seed wherever the cells land. Most lung cancers DO NOT spread this way.

Adenocarcinoma in situ (Bronchioloalveolar carcinoma)

9

Derived from neuroendocrine cells

small cell carcinoma

10

“Biphasic” histologic pattern

Pleural Mesothelioma

11

Tend to be centrally located in the lung

squamous cell carcinoma

12

Nuclei normally do not touch due to more cytoplasm.
Moderate amount of cytoplasm

large cell undifferentiated sarcoma

13

neuroendicrine neoplasms

small cell carcinoma
carcinoid

14

there is almost no cytoplasm, and the nuclei will characteristically mold around one another

small cell carcinoma

15

many mitotic figures

small cell carcinoma

16

no mitotic figures and small, regular nuclei

carcinoid tumor

17

lepidic growth pattern

Adenocarcinoma in situ (Bronchioloalveolar carcinoma)

18

What is carcinoid syndrome? What causes it?

a group of symptoms associated with carcinoid tumors-- tumors of the small intestine, colon, appendix, and bronchial tubes in the lungs

systemic effects of vasoactive substances produces by the tumor

19

symptoms of carcinod syndrome

Abdominal pain that comes and goes
Bright red flushing of the face
Diarrhea (may be explosive and severe)
Heart palpitations
Hypotension
Wheezing

20

Least correlated with smoking

Adenocarcinoma in situ (Bronchioloalveolar carcinoma)

21

Spreads widely through the pleural space

Pleural Mesothelioma

22


sometimes cavitating

large cell undifferentiated sarcoma

23

assc with Cushing syndrome

small cell carcinoma

24

keratin pearls

squamous cell

25

Characteristic intrabronchial spread

Adenocarcinoma in situ (Bronchioloalveolar carcinoma)
