The prevalence of thyroid nodules, especially differentiated thyroid cancer, has increased during the past decades. With the consideration of increasing prevalence of the diseases, American Thyroid Association (ATA) updated the guidelines for adult patients with thyroid nodules and differentiated thyroid carcinoma (DTC) in 2015. The aim of the new guidelines was to minimize potential harm from overtreatment in majority of patients at low risk for diseasespecific mortality and morbidity while appropriately treat and monitor those patients at higher risk...

Background: Gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs), which are mesenchymal neoplasms in the gastrointestinal (GI) tract account for 0.2% of all GI tumors. Several factors have been reported (mostly from studies conducted in Western countries) to be associated with survival in GISTs cases such as tumor site, staging, and tumor size. We conducted a pragmatic study, looking at a 10-year period, aimed at understanding the prognostic factors related to GISTs in a university hospital. The study population consisted of patients with large symptomatic GISTs...

Emerging evidence has suggested that cytoreductive prostatectomy (CRP) allows superior oncologic control when compared to current standard of care androgen deprivation therapy alone. However, the safety and benefit of cytoreduction in metastatic prostate cancer (mPCa) has not been proven. Therefore, we evaluated the incidence of complications following CRP in men newly diagnosed with mPCa. A total of 68 patients who underwent CRP from 2006 to 2014 at four tertiary surgical centers were compared to 598 men who underwent radical prostatectomy for clinically localized prostate cancer (PCa)...

OBJECTIVES: Approximately 1 % of all malignant solid tumours of the head and neck area are metastases from primary tumours beneath the clavicles. The aim of this study was to analyse the distribution of primary tumours since meta-analyses might have been biased due to the usually extraordinary character of case reports. MATERIALS AND METHODS: All patient files from 1970 to 2012 from the Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery unit at a University Hospital were analysed regarding the existence of metastases to the head and neck area from distant primaries...

Worldwide, colorectal cancer (CRC) screening programs have significantly increased the detection of sub-mucosal (pT1) adenocarcinoma. Completion surgery may be indicated after endoscopic excision of these potentially metastasizing early cancers. However, the post-surgical prevalence of nodal implants does not exceed 15%, leading to questions concerning the clinical appropriateness of any post-endoscopy surgery. Eastern scientific societies (Japanese Society for Cancer of the Colon-Rectum, in particular) include tumor budding (TB), defined as the presence of isolated single cancer cells or clusters of fewer than five cancer cells at the tumor invasive front, among the variables that must be included in histological reports...

Mixed epithelial and stromal tumor of the kidney (MESTK) is a rare renal tumor composed of epithelial and stromal cells. In this study, we report a rare case of MESTK, which was pathologically benign but complicated with renal vein and inferior vena cava tumor thrombus. The 50-year-old female patient was admitted to hospital for a mass on the left kidney. Computed tomography showed a 32 mm×18 mm mass with slight delayed enhancement in the left renal sinus, and neoplastic thrombus was detected in left renal vein and inferior vena cava...

Extraskeletal osteosarcoma is a rare and invasive malignancy, typically located in the soft tissue without attachment to the skeleton. The present study reports a case of a primary mesenteric extraskeletal osteosarcoma of a 71-year-old woman. The patient complained of an incomplete defecation. Colonoscopy showed an ulcer with impression of external compression of the sigmoid. An additional abdominal computed tomography (CT) scan revealed a large, almost completely calcified, mass in the left lower abdomen causing hydronephrosis of the left kidney...

Prostate cancer is the most common solid tumor malignancy in men worldwide. Treatment with surgery and radiation can be curative in organ-confined disease. Unfortunately, about one third of men develop biochemically recurrent disease based only on rising prostate-specific antigen (PSA) in the absence of visible disease on conventional imaging. For these patients with biochemical recurrent prostate cancer, there is no uniform guideline for subsequent management. Based on available data, it seems prudent that biochemical recurrent prostate cancer should initially be evaluated for salvage radiation or prostatectomy, with curative intent...

We report the case of a 57-year-old female suffering from recurrent malignant undifferentiated pleomorphic sarcoma of the left atrium. Metastasis to the posterior mediastinum was detected upon first presentation. Incomplete resections were carried out twice before mitral valve replacement was finally performed. The tumor recurred 16 months later and was treated with radiation therapy, which has proved to be effective in bringing about tumor regression for 2 years, to date. The patient has survived for 7 years since the first surgery...

Anal metastasis of colorectal cancer is very rare and is usually associated with a history of anal disease, including anal fistula, fissure, hemorrhoidectomy, and anastomotic injury. We report a case of rectal cancer with a synchronous anal metastasis consisting of adenocarcinoma of squamous cells without a history of anal disease. A 60-year-old woman had a chief complaint of melena. She had a 1.5-cm anal tumor on the perianal skin, and a Bollman type 2 rectal tumor on the Ra portion was found on colonoscopy...

In this opinion paper of the Journal of Endocrinological Investigation, leading experts in the field report on their current clinical experience with a novel approach for thyroid gland surgery, namely, "transoral thyroidectomy" (TOT). This feasible and novel surgical procedure does not require visible incisions and is, therefore, a truly scarless surgery. Patients meeting the following criteria can be considered as candidates for TOT: (a) an ultrasonographically (US) estimated thyroid diameter ≤10 cm; (b) US-estimated gland volume ≤45 mL; (c) nodule size ≤50 mm; (d) presence of a benign tumor such as a thyroid cyst or a single- or multi-nodular goiter; (e) Bethesda 3 and/or 4 category and (f) papillary microcarcinoma without the evidence of metastasis...
