Spread of cancer in the peritoneum, known as peritoneal carcinomatosis or peritoneal metastases, is the 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 implant into different areas of the peritoneum.
