Summaries for Thymic Carcinoma

About this section
Disease Ontology:8 A thymus cancer that derives from epithelial cells. the tumor cells in a thymic carcinoma look very different from the normal cells of the thymus, grow more quickly, and have usually spread to other parts of the body when the cancer is found.

MalaCards based summary: Thymic Carcinoma, also known as malignant thymoma, is related to thymoma and mesothelioma, and has symptoms including neoplasm of the thymus, mediastinal lymphadenopathy and respiratory insufficiency. An important gene associated with Thymic Carcinoma is CD5 (CD5 molecule), and among its related pathways are Hematopoietic cell lineage and Neuroscience. The compounds s 100 and reticulin have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include thymus, lung and brain, and related mouse phenotypes are no phenotypic analysis and digestive/alimentary.

Wikipedia:64 Thymic carcinoma is a rare type of thymus gland cancer. It usually spreads, has a high risk of... more...
