Lecture 8

Question Answer
What are 3 Carcinogenic factors cause dmg to cellular DNA?(1) Solar radiation
(2) Viral infxn
(3) Chronic trauma & inflammation (leads to ↑ cell turnover, aka hyperplasia, which leads to an ↑ rate of cellular mutations)
What are the 4 categories of genes affected which lead to neoplastic transformation?(1) Tumor suppressor genes
(2) Proto-oncogenes
(3) Genes that regulate apoptosis
(4) Genes that regulate DNA repair
*Features of benignancy?Generally have only low-grade dysplasia & ↓ mitotic rate. Expansile, compressive & well circumscribed
*Features of malignancy?~Generally have high-grade dysplasia (POORLY DIFFERENTIATED) & ↑ mitotic rate. It is also INVASIVE (to surrounding tissue & vasculature) & will have metastasis.
What is the main way you determine if benign or malignant? How can you improve prognosis? Why do we care?~Most of the features can only be confirmed by histopathology!! Many tumors will progress from benign to malignant, so you want to dx & then excise as early as possible (before it has a chance to become malignant)
