Liquid-based preparations may be particularly valuable for diagnosing squamous cell carcinoma, small cell
undifferentiated carcinoma, and metastatic carcinoma of the lung.
6 Histologically, carcinoma of lung is classified mainly into squamous cell carcinoma, small cell
carcinoma, adenocarcinoma, large cell carcinoma and other less common types.
The patients were classified according to the major histologic groups: Adenocarcinoma, Squamous cell carcinoma, Small cell
carcinoma, undifferentiated non-small cell carcinoma and others.

Previous scientific publications have linked abnormal Hedgehog pathway activation to the progression of several cancers, including basal cell carcinoma, small cell
lung cancer, medulloblastoma, pancreatic cancer, colorectal cancer, prostate cancer and others.
The differential diagnosis of BSCC include adenoid cystic carcinoma, adenosquamous carcinoma, spindle cell squamous carcinoma, mucoepidermoid carcinoma, adenoid squamous carcinoma, small cell
neuroendocrine carcinoma, and basosquamous cell carcinoma.
a) The "Other" group includes all remaining tumors tested, except renal cell carcinoma (squamous cell carcinoma, small cell
carcinoma, thyroid, bile duct, bladder, breast, colon, liver, ovaries, pancreas, prostate, stomach, uterus).
