About the offer

Peritoneal cancer is a cancer type that originates in the peritoneum, the tissue lining the abdomen. It occurs when abnormal cells in this area start to grow uncontrollably, leading to the development of a tumor. To diagnose peritoneal cancer, healthcare professionals perform examinations and tests. They begin by conducting a thorough clinical history-taking and reviewing the patient's medical records to gather important information about their symptoms and medical background. Then, a physical exam is performed to assess the patient's overall condition. Consultation with a gastroenterologist-oncologist is sought to obtain specialized expertise in condition diagnosis and management. Laboratory tests are crucial in the diagnostic process. First, blood tests assess various parameters that indicate how the body works. Next, tumor marker tests are performed to check for specific signs associated with peritoneal cancer. Finally, imaging tests visualize the peritoneal region and identify any abnormalities or tumors. In some cases, an ultrasound-guided biopsy may be performed. A small tissue sample from the peritoneum is examined under a microscope. The analysis of the biopsy sample confirms the presence of cancer and provides information for treatment decisions. These examinations aim to gather comprehensive information, establish a definitive diagnosis of peritoneal cancer, and create a treatment plan suited to the patient's needs.
