Diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) rarely occurs in the liver. Spontaneous regression of this tumor is extremely rare. We are reporting the first case of hepatic DLBCL, and we are reviewing the English literature for cases of spontaneous regression of DLBCL and cancer in general. A 60-year-old gentleman with a history of HIV and HCV infections presented with an incidental liver mass. He was diagnosed with DLBCL germinal cell type with high grade features based on the results of pathological/c...

Odisha, a populous state and a major mining belt in India has high levels of environmental carcinogens. There is no population-based cancer registry in Odisha, thus giving no opportunity to develop systematic studies on important regional carcinogens. This paper highlights current patterns of cancer as seen at Acharya Harihar Regional Cancer Centre (AHRCC), and provides the first opportunity to determine the most important research questions that could drive cancer control programs in Odisha.

Long-term infection with human papillomavirus (HPV) is the cause of cervical cancer and its precursor - cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN). The presence of HPV infection can be presumed in more than 99% of cases of cervical cancer worldwide. The introduction of DNA testing for the presence of HPV has increased the effectiveness of screening programs for the detection of this cancer. This article contains the latest reports on the structure, function and role of HPV in the development of ce...

About 13% of lung cancer cases are of the small cell subtype, but this variant is highly aggressive, and approximately 40% of patients with small cell lung cancer will have limited-stage disease, which is potentially curable with the combination of chemotherapy and radiation therapy. The standard therapy for limited-stage small cell lung cancer is concurrent chemoradiotherapy, and the 5-year survival rate observed in clinical trials is approximately 25%. For patients who obtain a near complete o...
