A Short note on Cell Carcinoma


Carcinoma is a type of cancer that starts in cells that make up the skin or the tissue lining organs, such as the liver or kidneys. Carcinomas can occur in many parts of the body.

Like other types of cancer, carcinomas are abnormal cells that divide without control. They are able to spread to other parts of the body.

Types of Carcinoma:

The common types of carcinoma are:

  • Basal cell carcinoma
  • Squamous cell carcinoma
  • Renal cell carcinoma
  • Ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS)
  • Invasive ductal carcinoma
  • Adenocarcinoma

Basal cell carcinoma: This is the most common type of all cancers. It occurs in cells lining the deepest part of the skin's outer layer. You should get quick treatment for basal cell carcinoma to avoid scars. But only in very rare cases this type of carcinoma spread to other parts of the body.This carcinomas often look like, Open sores, Red patches, Pink growths, Shiny bumps or scars. If you have basal cell carcinoma it's likely that you got it because of too much time in the sun. You may have had a few bad sunburns or else spent a lot of time in the sun during your life.

Squamous cell carcinoma: It is the second most common type of skin cancer. Most people think of skin cancer when they hear the word squamous cell carcinoma. And it is true that this type of carcinoma often shows up on the skin. But squamous cell carcinoma can also be found in other parts of the body, such as cells lining. When squamous cell carcinoma develops in the skin, you often find it on areas that are exposed to the sun, such as face, ears, neck, lips, back of the hands.

Squamous cell carcinoma that develops on the skin is usually caused by spending too much time in the sun over the course of your life. This type of skin cancer tends to grow and spread more than basal cell cancers. In rare cases, it may spread to the lymph nodes.

Renal cell carcinoma: This is the most common type of kidney cancer. It usually grows as a single tumour within the kidney. It is sometimes discovered when you have a CT scan or an ultrasound. Sometimes it is detected after it has already become very large or spread to other organs.

Ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS): This is a condition where cancer cells are found inside the ducts of the breast. But in DCIS, the cancer has not fully developed or spread into nearby areas. Nearly all women diagnosed with this can be cured.

Invasive ductal carcinoma: This type of breast cancer starts in a milk duct but spreads into the fatty tissue of the breast. It can spread to other parts of the body through the lymph system and bloodstream.

Adenocarcinoma: This is a type of carcinoma that starts in cells called glandular cells. These cells make mucus and other fluids. The glandular cells are found in different organs in your body. These can occur in different parts of the body.

Journal of Clinical & Experimental Pathology deals strive to combine the research perspectives of both the fields of clinical pathology & experimental pathology also called as investigative pathology. Journal has stepped forward for its next special issue release in the month of April.

Special issue titled Current Pathological Study about Cell Carcinoma mainly focuses on the updated pathological aspects and studies on cell carcinoma. We welcome conceptual or empirical manuscripts with international focus on the topic. This can include review articles, full original research reports, brief communications, letters to the editor, or editorials, in keeping with the usual article types for Pathology.
