1.

Squamous cell carcinoma

The presence of squamous cell carcinoma of the skin. [from HPO]

MedGen UID:
505376
Concept ID:
CN002585
Finding
2.

Squamous cell carcinoma

A carcinoma arising from squamous epithelial cells. Morphologically, it is characterized by the proliferation of atypical, often pleomorphic squamous cells. Squamous cell carcinomas are graded by the degree of cellular differentiation as well, moderately, or poorly differentiated. Well differentiated carcinomas are usually associated with keratin production and the presence of intercellular bridges between adjacent cells. Representative examples are lung squamous cell carcinoma, skin squamous cell carcinoma, and cervical squamous cell carcinoma. [from NCI]

MedGen UID:
2874
Concept ID:
C0007137
Neoplastic Process
3.

Hyperplasia

An abnormal increase in the number of cells in an organ or a tissue with consequent enlargement. [from NCI]

MedGen UID:
43784
Concept ID:
C0020507
Pathologic Function
4.

Papilloma

A tumor of the skin or mucous membrane with finger-like projections. [from HPO]

MedGen UID:
10566
Concept ID:
C0030354
Neoplastic Process
5.

Carcinoma

A malignant neoplasm made up of epithelial cells tending to infiltrate the surrounding tissues and give rise to metastases. It is a histological type of neoplasm but is often wrongly used as a synonym for "cancer." (From Dorland, 27th ed) [from MeSH]

MedGen UID:
2867
Concept ID:
C0007097
Neoplastic Process
6.

Carcinoma

MedGen UID:
910818
Concept ID:
CN241453
Finding
7.

Papilloma

A tumor of the skin or mucous membrane with finger-like projections. [from HPO]

MedGen UID:
830703
Concept ID:
CN185444
Finding
8.

Pathogenesis

The pathologic, physiologic, or biochemical mechanism resulting in the development of a disease or morbid process. [from NCI]

MedGen UID:
195936
Concept ID:
C0699748
Pathologic Function
9.

Regression

Return to a former state; a subsidence of the symptoms of a disease process; in cancer, a decrease in the size of a tumor or in the extent of cancer in the body. [from NCI]

MedGen UID:
195771
Concept ID:
C0684320
Pathologic Function
10.

Benign Epithelial Neoplasm

A neoplasm arising from the epithelial cells. It is characterized by the absence of morphologic features associated with malignancy (severe cytologic atypia, tumor cell necrosis, and high mitotic rate). Benign epithelial neoplasms remain confined to the original site of growth and only rarely metastasize to other anatomic sites. [from NCI]

MedGen UID:
90747
Concept ID:
C0334232
Neoplastic Process
11.

Tonsillar Squamous Cell Carcinoma

A squamous cell carcinoma that arises from the mucosal lining of the tonsil and tends to metastasize early to the lymph nodes. It predominantly affects middle aged and elderly patients who have a history of alcohol and tobacco use. Patients may present with tonsillar swelling, sore throat, pain radiating to the ipsilateral ear, or a neck mass. [from NCI]

MedGen UID:
79101
Concept ID:
C0280317
Neoplastic Process
12.

Risk factor

An aspect of personal behavior or lifestyle, environmental exposure, inborn or inherited characteristic, which, on the basis of epidemiological evidence, is known to be associated with a health-related condition considered important to prevent. [from MeSH]

MedGen UID:
48477
Concept ID:
C0035648
Finding
13.

Metastasis

The spread or migration of cancer cells from one part of the body (the organ in which it first appeared) to another. The secondary tumor contains cells that are like those in the original (primary) tumor. [from NCI]

MedGen UID:
45032
Concept ID:
C0027627
Neoplastic Process
14.

Epithelial Neoplasm

A benign or malignant neoplasm that arises from and is composed of epithelial cells. This category include adenomas, papillomas, and carcinomas. [from NCI]

MedGen UID:
277963
Concept ID:
C1368683
Neoplastic Process
15.

Disease due to Papilloma virus

Neoplasms of the skin and mucous membranes caused by papillomaviruses. They are usually benign but some have a high risk for malignant progression. [from MeSH]

MedGen UID:
185132
Concept ID:
C0950124
Disease or Syndrome
16.

Carcinomatosis

Carcinoma that has spread diffusely to an anatomic site or throughout the body. [from NCI]

MedGen UID:
104704
Concept ID:
C0205699
Neoplastic Process
17.

Squamous Cell Neoplasm

A neoplasm that is composed of squamous epithelial cells. Squamous cell carcinoma is a representative example. [from NCI]

MedGen UID:
60219
Concept ID:
C0206720
Neoplastic Process

MedGen UID:
60010
Concept ID:
C0205698
Neoplastic Process
19.

Sarcomatoid Carcinoma

A malignant epithelial neoplasm characterized by the presence of spindle cells and anaplastic morphologic features. Giant cells and a sarcomatous component may also be present. [from NCI]
