Intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasm (IPMN) is a type of tumor (neoplasm) that grows within the pancreatic ducts (intraductal) and is characterized by the production of thick fluid by the tumor cells (mucinous). Intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms are important because if they are left untreated some of them progress to invasive cancer (transform from a benign tumor to a malignant tumor). Just as colon polyps can develop into colon cancer if left untreated, so too do some intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms progress into an invasive pancreatic cancer. Intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms can present an opportunity to treat a pancreatic tumor before it develops into an aggressive, hard-to-treat cancer.

  • Neoplasia mucinosa papilar intraductal é um tipo de tumor (neoplasia) que se desenvolve nos ductos do pâncreas (intraductal) e caracterizado pela produção de um líquido espesso pelas células do tumor (mucinosa). Caso permaneçam por tratar, podem progredir para cancro invasivo maligno. (pt)
