BACKGROUND Clarifying the prognostic impact of histological type is an essential issue that may influence the treatment and follow-up planning of newly diagnosed cervical cancer cases. This study aimed to evaluate the prognostic impact of histological type on survival and mortality in patients with cervical squamous cell carcinoma (SCC), adenocarcinoma(More)
BACKGROUND The study aimed to determine the prognostic impact of clinical and pathological factors on survival among patients with small cell neuroendocrine carcinoma (SNEC), adenocarcinoma (ADC), and squamous cell carcinoma (SCC). METHODS Eligible participants were all patients with histologically confirmed cervical cancer treated at Chiang Mai(More)
OBJECTIVE This study aimed to determine the clinicopathologic characteristics that affected the survival in patients with small cell neuroendocrine carcinoma of the uterine cervix (SNEC). MATERIALS AND METHODS All patients with SNEC treated at Chiang Mai University Hospital between January 1995 and October 2011 were retrospectively reviewed with(More)
Persistent human papillomavirus (HPV) infection may promote carcinogenesis by hyperactivation of the immune system. We, therefore, explored the associations between HPV infection and risk of Hodgkin and non-Hodgkin lymphoma in a nationwide cohort study using conization as a surrogate marker. We identified all Danish women who underwent conization between(More)
BACKGROUND The tumor-stroma ratio (TSR) represents the percentage of neoplastic cell components compared to the combined area of neoplastic cells and the surrounding tumor-induced stroma. A low TSR (predomination of stromal component) has been demonstrated to be an independent adverse prognostic factor in cancers of several organs. In cervical carcinoma(More)
Background: Tumor budding has recently been reported as an independent adverse prognostic factor for colorectal adenocarcinomas and other types of carcinoma in the digestive tract. This study aimed to evaluate the prognostic value of tumor budding in patients with early-stage cervical adenocarcinomas and any associations with other clinical and pathological(More)
BACKGROUND Testing for high-risk human papillomavirus DNA (HPV test) has gained increasing acceptance as an alternative method to cytology in cervical cancer screening. Compared to cytology, HPV test has a higher sensitivity for the detection of histologic high-grade squamous intraepithelial lesion or worse (HSIL+), but this could lead to a large colposcopy(More)
Human papillomavirus (HPV) infection is an important cause of cervical cancer. Screening with cytology or combined cytology and HPV testing helps to detect early cervical cancers and precancerous lesions (high-grade squamous intraepithelial lesion or worse [HSIL+]). Minor cytological abnormalities (atypical squamous cells of undetermined significance and(More)
