C77 refers to a group of malignant tumors that are secondary (unspecified) and occur in the lymph nodes. Lymph nodes are part of the lymphatic system, which plays an important role in immune defense. However, changes in these nodes may also indicate cancer.
Lymphomas are malignant tumors of the lymphoid tissue and can be either primary (d.h. without involvement of other areas of the body) or secondary (d.h. Be the result of a pre-existing cancer). C77 describes a group of cancers that manifest as secondary lymphoma in the lymph node.
The diagnosis of C77 is based on physical examination, imaging, and laboratory tests. Treatment for C77 depends on the type and stage of lymphoma and may include a combination of radiation, chemotherapy, and immunotherapy.
This series of articles introduces the different types of C77 and discusses symptoms, diagnostic methods, and treatment options. We hope this information will help increase understanding of this rare but complex cancer and help those affected receive the best possible treatment.
Secondary and unspecified malignant neoplasm of the lymph node (C77)
Secondary malignant neoplasm of the lymph nodes results from the spread of cancer cells from one tumor to another organ. These cancer cells can invade and multiply in the lymph nodes via the bloodstream or lymphatic system. The cancer cells may spread to one lymph node or to multiple lymph nodes. The lymph nodes may be greatly enlarged in the process.
