Question on path report

10 years 11 months ago #12351 by Julie
OK now I understand that your cancer was the papillary type which may stay at that stage for years.

CIS is the flat type that is considered high grade because of its aggressiveness even if it has not invaded the lamina propira or muscles. I have also heard my husbands cancer referred to as Transitional Cell Carcinoma.

Julie,

To be honest, I'm not sure if it says "cancer" or "carcinoma". I was questioning that myself when I typed it, but, the answer lies somewhere deep in the recesses of these forum archives. I will research it after I take a nap..

Dnile,

I surely hope that you will not feel like a burden. At least, I do hope that we here can make you feel that you can share a lot of your fears here and at least unburden yourself in that way. I hope we can do that for you.

If you change your name, what will it be?

Buds,
Rosemary

In answer to your original question, it is possible that when you did a search, it picked up the term "ductal" rather than urothelial.

Here is the definition of

urothelium (yoo-roh-THEE-lee-um)

The lining of the urinary tract, including the renal pelvis, ureters, bladder, and urethra.


Thank you, it is as I expected. I was just hoping I was having a bad dream.

I did take the first step in excepting this diagnosis last night as I now have told someone. Now to work on telling my family members, But I feel bad telling them as I dont want to burden them with my problems. I may have to change my screen name soon.
Thanks again, ImNdnile

Rosemary my understand is CIS stands for Carcinoma in Situ. Is your Cancer different than Carcinoma?
