Etiology of cancer spreading in the peritoneum

Cancer in the peritoneum is the result of tumor cells that grow through and into the peritoneum from a primary tumor.

If cancer cells reach the abdominal cavity, they have the ability to implant, create their own blood supply (angiogenesis) and continue to divide enough so that large areas of the abdominal cavity are being affected.

Risk factors

Asbestos exposure may pose a risk factor for mesotheliomas.
