METHODS Data of patients with extraskeletal Ewing's sarcoma followed up at our center between 1997 and 2010 were retrospectively analyzed. RESULTS The median age of 27(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to evaluate tumor characteristics, management and survival in elderly male breast cancer patients in comparison with younger men. METHODS We reviewed medical records of 99 male breast cancer patients between 1972 and 2011. The median age of the patients was 64.5 years. Patient characteristics including clinicopathologic(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this study is to evaluate the effects of prognostic factors on the overall survival (OS) and locoregional control (LC) among male breast cancer (MBC) patients treated at Cerrahpasa Medical School Hospital, along with a review of the related literature. METHODS The data of 86 patients treated for MBC from 1973 to 2010 are retrospectively(More)

The treatment is primarily surgery, and the standard medical therapy is imatinib. Long-term survival can be obtained with good follow-up and treatment. MATERIALS AND METHODS In this study, data entry was(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to investigate age-specific incidence rates and to compare disease stage, treatment, and survival according to age group in patients with gastric adenocarcinoma.

Obviously exploring the worth of some potential markers in this setting is warranted. The purpose of this study was to investigate the predictive value of the presence of K-RAS and B-RAF mutations on the(More)
