My sister-in-law's sister was just diagnosed with cancer - they don't even know where it has originated yet - but she said they mentioned "undifferentiated". SIL did remember that much anyway. I just thought maybe there was a general-type definition that I could help her with. I know that I have heard that term used, but have no idea what it means! :?

A simple way of looking at this is the cancer cells are so disorganized that they don't resemble the tissue where they were found growing.

There is something called ACUP-Cancer of Unknown Primary. This diagnosis is given when pathologists are unable to determine the primary site for the cancer.
