Appendix Cancer: Understand Your Disease

Understanding Appendix Cancer

Appendix cancer occurs when abnormal cells grow violently in your appendix, a small puch connected to your colon with no known purpose. A rare condition called Pseudomyxoma Peritonei can develop when an appendix tumor breaks through the wall of your appendix, causing thick mucin (mucus) to flow though your abdominal space. This mucus outbreak can disrupt the functions of your digestive organs, which comprises the colon, liver, and small bowel.

Appendix Cancers We Treat at New Hope Unlimited

Our alternative appendix cancer treatments aim to treat the following types of appendix cancers:

Colonic-Type Adenocarcinoma

Theses tumors begin at the bottom of the organ (near the colon). They account for about 10% of appendix cancer cases.

Carcinoid, Adenocarcinoid, and Goblet Cell Appendix Tumors

These slow-growing tumors develop in the appendix. They represent approximately half to two-thirds of appendix cancer cases.

Non-Carcinoid Appendix Tumors

Theses tumors progress in the wall of the appendix. They are responsible for producing a thick and sticky substance called mucin.

Signet-Ring Cell Adenocarcinoma

These sporadic tumors are considered the most aggresive form of appendix cancer.

Appendix Cancer Symptoms

People with appendix cancer may experience:

  • Appendicitis
  • Ascites of fluid in the abdoment
  • Bloating
  • Changes in bowel function
  • Pain in the stomach or pelvic area
  • Increased size of the waistline, with or without a protrusion of the navel
  • Problems with fertility

Appendix cancer symptoms may not appear until the disease reaches an advanced stage or has spread to other organs. If you are concerned about any changes in your body, please speak with your doctor.

Appendix Cancer Risks Factors and Prevention

Specific risk factors have not been established for appendix cancer. However, some factors with potential risks include:

  • Use of tobacco products
  • A family history of appendix cancer or multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1 (MEN1)
  • A history of condition affecting the stomach's ability to produce acid
  • An association with schistosomiasis an infection from parasitic worms
  • Age, approximately 38 and older
  • Ethnicity, particularly Caucasians and African-Americans

Since the preventable causes of appendix cancer are unknown, little can be done to prevent it. In most cases, smoking cessation and maintaining a healthy lifestyle can help fight off many diseases, which amy include cancer of the appendix.

Detection and Diagnosis

In Addition to physical examinations, your doctor may order the following tests to detect appendix cancer tumors:

  • Biopsy
  • Ultrasound
  • Computed tomography (CT or CAT) scan
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan
  • Radionuclide scanning (OctreoScan)
