  • Classification Approximately 20 different groups of sarcomas are recognized on the basis of the pattern of differentiation toward normal tissue. For example, rhabdomyosarcoma shows evidence of skeletal muscle fibers with cross-striations; leiomyosarcomas contain interlacing fascicles of spindle cells resembling smooth muscle; and liposarcomas contain adipocytes. When precise characterization of the group is not possible, the tumors are called unclassified sarcomas. All of the primary bone sarcomas can also arise from soft tissues (e.g., extraskeletal osteosarcoma).

  • Bone Sarcomas Incidence and Epidemiology Bone sarcomas are rarer than soft tissue sarcomas; they accounted for only 0.2% of all new malignancies and 2370 new cases in the United States in 2007. Several benign bone lesions have the potential for malignant transformation. Enchondromas and osteochondromas can transform into chondrosarcoma; fibrous dysplasia, bone infarcts, and Paget's disease of bone can transform into either malignant fibrous histiocytoma or osteosarcoma.

  • Chondrosarcoma Chondrosarcoma, which constitutes ~20–25% of all bone sarcomas, is a tumor of adulthood and old age with a peak incidence in the fourth to sixth decades of life. It has a predilection for the flat bones, especially the shoulder and pelvic girdles, but can also affect the diaphyseal portions of long bones. Chondrosarcomas can arise de novo or as a malignant transformation of an enchondroma or, rarely, of the cartilaginous cap of an osteochondroma. Chondrosarcomas have an indolent natural history and typically present as pain and swelling.

  • Cancer in the bone may produce osteolysis, osteogenesis, or both. Osteolytic lesions result when the tumor produces substances that can directly elicit bone resorption (vitamin D–like steroids, prostaglandins, or parathyroid hormone–related peptide) or cytokines that can induce the formation of osteoclasts (interleukin 1 and tumor necrosis factor). Osteoblastic lesions result when the tumor produces cytokines that activate osteoblasts. In general, purely osteolytic lesions are best detected by plain radiography, but they may not be apparent until they are 1 cm.

  • Etiology Humoral hypercalcemia of malignancy (HHM) occurs in up to 20% of patients with cancer. HHM is most common in cancers of the lung, head and neck, skin, esophagus, breast, genitourinary tract, and in multiple myeloma and lymphomas. Several distinct humoral causes of HHM occur, most commonly overproduction of PTHrP. In addition to acting as a circulating humoral factor, bone metastases (e.g., breast, multiple myeloma) may produce PTHrP, leading to local osteolysis and hypercalcemia.

  • Twelve studies addressed the contextual influences which hinder or enable the develop- ment of reflection and reflective capability. Several studies explored the effect of context on reflection and reflective thinking. Sobral (2000) found evidence for improved quality of learning as students strive for control of their learning. He suggests that a greater effort at reflection is associated with a more positive learning experience, and that reflection in learning is related to readiness for self- regulated learning, and to the meaningfulness of the experience.

  • Neoadjuvant and concurrent luteinising hormone-releasing hormone agonist (LHRHa) therapy is recommended for 3 to 6 months in men receiving radical radiotherapy for locally advanced prostate cancer. Adjuvant hormonal therapy in addition to radical prostatectomy is not recommended, even in men with margin-positive disease, other than in the context of a clinical trial 10 . Adjuvant hormonal therapy is recommended for a minimum of 2 years in men receiving radi- cal radiotherapy for locally advanced prostate cancer who have a Gleason score of ≥ 8.

  • As mentioned in Appendix 2.2, it is recommended that cancer registries use the International Classification of Diseases for Oncology (ICD-O) (Percy et al., 1990) to code the topography (site of primary tumour) and morphol- ogy (histological type) of the tumours. The fifth digit in the ICD-O mor- phology codes describes the behaviour of the tumour—benign, borderline, in situ, malignant. The topography of a tumour is the most important data item recorded and provides the main basis of tabulation of registry data....

  • Tobacco smoke is highly addictive and has been linked to 20 percent of all deaths in the United States. It contains many cancer- causing chemicals, and almost one third of all cancer deaths are related to tobacco use. Tobacco smoking has generally been considered to have little or no association with breast cancer risk. Newer studies have challenged this conclusion and suggested a connection between smoking and an increased risk of breast cancer, but more investigation is needed to resolve this issue.

  • The experience of breast cancer can also create challenges for a marriage or signif- icant relationship. Difficulties include communication problems, difficulty coping and sexual dysfunction (one study found that approximately 50% of women with cancer had at least one diagnosed sexual dysfunction during the posttreatment year) (Anderson,Ander- son, & DeProsse, 1989). However, research suggests that when marriages are strong before the development of breast cancer, the disease does not usually disrupt the relation- ship, and may result in an even closer relationship (Oktay & Walter, 1991).

  • Staging of Small Cell Lung Cancer Pretreatment staging for patients with SCLC includes the initial general lung cancer evaluation with chest and abdominal CT scans (because of the high frequency of hepatic and adrenal involvement) as well as fiberoptic bronchoscopy with washings and biopsies to determine the tumor extent before therapy; brain CT scan (10% of patients have metastases); and radionuclide scans (bone) if symptoms or other findings suggest disease involvement in these areas.
