Answer

Like all lymphomas, NHL appears as nodal masses with physical signs referable to the area where they develop and disrupt.

Clinical findings of verrucous squamous cell carcinoma of the tongue include a thickened patch in OLP on the tongue. [82] A possible relationship exists to altered TP53 gene transformation in squamous cell carcinoma and hepatoma in cirrhosis.

MALT syndrome appears as mass lesions in the orbit or in a gut-associated area (eg, salivary gland or intra-abdominal, hepatic, or other area).

Hepatoma physically appears as a mass lesion in the liver; a metastatic lesion, often to the brain or lung; and metabolic disruptions of those organs.
