Genes and Disease by the National Center for Biotechnology (Excerpt)

Insight may also be drawn for other cancer types by studying the molecular biology of p16, since the malfunction of other components of the p16 pathway have also been implicated in other cancers. (Source: Genes and Disease by the National Center for Biotechnology)

What You Need To Know About Melanoma: NCI (Excerpt)

A new procedure under study, called sentinel lymph node biopsy , may eventually reduce the number of lymph nodes that need to be removed for biopsy and possibly prevent or lessen the severity of lymphedema (build up of excess lymph in tissue that causes swelling). In this procedure, either a blue dye or a small amount of radioactive material is injected near the area where the tumor was. This material flows into the sentinel lymph node(s) (the first lymph node(s) that the cancer is likely to spread to from the primary tumor). A surgeon then looks for the dye or uses a scanner to find the sentinel lymph node(s) and removes it for examination by a pathologist. If the sentinel lymph node(s) is positive for cancer cells, then the rest of the surrounding lymph nodes are usually removed; if it is negative, the remaining lymph nodes may not need to be removed.
