Adenocarcinoma Open Access Journals

 Adenocarcinoma is a kind of cancer that occurs in glandular tissue. Here the tissues affected are part of a larger tissue category known as epithelial. Such as skin, glands, cavities of organs etc. This epithelium originates from the endoderm, mesoderm and ectoderm in the fetus. Adenocarcinoma cells do not necessarily need to be a part of the gland but it may possess secretory properties. They tend to grow or originate at the sites of bone growth, because rapid increase makes osteoblastic cells in this region vulnerable to acquire mutations that could lead to transformation of cells. Because of this tendency, high incidence of Adenocarcinoma is seen in some large dog breeds. The Adenocarcinoma tumor causes a great deal of pain, and can even lead to fracture or failure of the affected bone. As with human Adenocarcinoma, bone biopsy is the definitive method to reach a final diagnosis.
