It has been established that infections with specific HPV types are contributing factors to cervical cancer. Approximately 99.7% of cervical cancers are associated with high risk HPV types. HPV testing plays an important role in the prevention, by(More)
INTRODUCTION Breast and cervical cancers are both common malignancies in Hungarian women. The aim of this study was to evaluate the impact of nationwide screening programs on the incidence and mortality of breast and cervical cancers and to assess the role of primary care providers in this context.

Biomarkers have a wide range of applications in the management of several cancers. To date serum markers have been the most extensively used biomarkers in everyday practice but few markers are elevated in preclinical or premalignant disease, limiting their importance for estimating risk or for screening. Human epididymis protein-4 (HE4) is a novel serum(More)

Ovarian carcinoma has the highest mortality among gynecologic cancers. Most of the patients are sensitive to the first-line platinum-based combined chemotherapy and they will present a complete response, but most of them will relapse within 24 months. The resistance to chemotherapy is a great therapeutic challenge. Recent figures show that heat shock(More)
Granular cell tumours (GCTs) are uncommon rare neoplasms that may occur in any part of the body. Approximately 5-8% of granular cell tumours occur within the breast. Although nearly always benign in behaviour, granular cell tumours of the breast can often mimic breast malignancies both clinically and on the basis of imaging techniques. This article reports(More)
The mixed mesodermal tumor is a very uncommon malignancy. The aggressiveness of this lesion is illustrated by extremely poor prospects for afflicted patients: postoperative survival is usually shorter than 24 months. According to the literature, malignant mixed tumor of the ovary is rather rare and its occurrence with other malignancy is exceptional. We(More)
