Malignant tumor of a gland, or tumor in which the cells form a glandular structure.
A cancer derived from glandular tissue. Adenocarcinomas develop on the linings or inner surfaces of organs, such as the lung, pancreas, breast, prostate, esophagus, stomach, vagina, urethra, or small intestine. Nearly all colon cancers and about 40 percent of lung cancers are adenocarcinomas.
A malignant epithelial tumor arising from the glandular structures, which are constituent parts of most organs of the body. The term is also applied to tumors showing a glandular growth pattern. These tumors may be subclassified according to the substances that they produce, for example mucus-secreting and serous adenocarcinomas, or to the microscopical arrangement of their cells into patterns, for example papillary and follicular adenocarcinomas. They may be solid or cystic (cystadenocarcinomas). Each organ may produce tumors showing a variety of histological types; for example, the ovary may produce both mucinous and serous cystadenocarcinomas.
A malignant growth of glandular tissue. This tissue is widespread throughout the body’s organs and the tumours may occur, for example, in the stomach, ovaries and uterus.
A malignant tumor arising from a glandular organ.
