A malignant melanoma is an abnormal proliferation of pigmented cells in the body. Half of these tumors have BRAF mutations, with a worse response to treatment. We present the case of a 58-year-old male with a pigmented nodular lesion on the right calf and inguinal lymphadenopathy; a positive biopsy for nodular malignant melanoma (MMN) with the largest diameter of 2 mm, Clark level III and Breslow of 3 mm. Four months after tumor resection of the right pelvic limb and right lymphadenectomy are pe...

Article Type: Original Article | First Published: October 05, 2022

Interactions between cancer genesis, sleep quality and patient’s humor engage complex pathophysiological pathways. However, the outcome of various indicators of quality of life (Qol) after chemotherapy in non small cells lung cancer (NSCLC) and also their prognostic impact remain understudied. The objective of this study was to analyze the Qol, sleep quality and anxio-depressive disorder in advanced NSCLC patients put on chemotherapy....

Article Type: Case Report | First Published: August 29, 2022

Leiomyosarcomas (LMS) are rare tumors associated with poor outcomes. Treatment of the condition is challenging due to limited cases in the literature. Here, we present a case of a 46-year-old male who presented with left lower limb deep vein thrombosis, with an ultrasound scan revealing a right renal mass. MRI demonstrated a large, well-circumscribed lesion engulfing the middle and lower right renal poles associated with an invasion of the related part of the inferior vena cava (IVC), right rena...

Feasibility and Value of Salivary Cortisol Sampling to Reflect Distress in Head and Neck Cancer Patients Undergoing Chemoradiation: A Proof-of-Concept Study

Karishma Chhabria, MPH, PhD, Mark Bonnen, MD, Joshua Asper, PA-C, Giselle D Carnaby, MPH, PhD

Article Type: Systematic Review | First Published: September 12, 2022

Head and neck cancer (HNC) patients undergoing chemo/radiation commonly experience severe and persistent distress associated with treatment related fear and physical side effects such as xerostomia, dysphagia, and dryness of mouth. Cortisol, a stress sensitive hormone, can be easily measured in saliva to reflect biobehavioral responses to such stressors. Unfortunately, it has not been used in this population due to concerns associated with chemoradiation (C/RT) related xerostomia....
