Carcinoma

Karcinom

Svensk definition

Elakartad tumör, bestående av epitelceller som infiltrerar omkringliggande vävnader och som ger upphov till metastaser. Det är en neoplasm av specifik vävnadstyp (histologisk typ), men betraktas ofta felaktigt som en synonym till begreppet "cancer".

Engelsk definition

A malignant neoplasm made up of epithelial cells tending to infiltrate the surrounding tissues and give rise to metastases. It is a histological type of neoplasm and not a synonym for "cancer."
