Adenocarcinomas: The type of cancer that begins in glandular (secretory) cells is known as adenocarcinomas. Glandular cells are found in tissue that lines certain internal organs and makes and releases substances in the body, such as mucus, digestive juices, or other fluids. Most cancers of the breast, pancreas, lung, prostate, and colon are adenocarcinomas.
Adenocarcinomas are diagnosed like other cancers. They are usually detected by taking a biopsy of the tumor and examining it under the microscope. If such a tumor is discovered, it requires prompt treatment. This is essential because the cancer may spread to other organs as well. Treatment includes surgical removal of the tumor to prevent its growth. After surgery, the patient may undergo chemotherapy and radiation to prevent the adenocarcinoma coming back.
