Understanding Peritoneal Cancer

This website aims to provide a basic understanding of peritoneal cancers arising from different primary sites (ovaries, colon and rectum, stomach, appendix, small intestine) and the benefit of cytoreductive surgery and HIPEC in the treatment of these cancers to patients and their caregivers.

Gastrointestinal Cancers

Gastrointestinal Cancers

Gastrointestinal cancers are cancers that arise from the digestive tract that includes the stomach, the esophagus, the appendix and the small and large intestines. Gastrointestinal cancers are the second most common cause of peritoneal cancer after ovarian cancer.

Peritoneal Cancer

The peritoneum is a thin membrane that lines the inner wall of the abdominal cavity. It is an organ just like other organs of the body (the lungs, the liver, the kidneys and the brain). Cancer spread to the peritoneum is called peritoneal cancer.

Gynaecological Cancers

Gynaecological Cancers

Gynecological cancers are cancers that arise from a woman’s reproductive organs like the uterus, the ovaries and the fallopian tubes and the cervix. Ovarian and fallopian tube cancers are the most common source of peritoneal cancer.
