Peritoneum cancer, ill.

Peritoneal cancer05.01.17

Cancer in the peritoneum is known as peritoneal carcinomatosis, which is a general term for spreading of tumor cells in the peritoneum often originating from other organs in the abdominal cavity. Spread may also occur when a tumor grows through an organ reaching the surface of the peritoneum. Free cancer cells can attach to different areas of the peritoneum.
