What Patients Say About Cancer Treatment at New Hope

What is Peritoneal Cancer?

Unlocking the possibility of peritoneal cancer remission starts with knowing vital information about the disease.

Primary peritoneal cancer (PPC), also called peritoneal carcinoma, is a relatively rare cancer that occurs most commonly in women. The peritoneum is a serous membrane lining the cavity of the belly and covering the abdominal organs.

Peritoneal cancer is a close relative of ovarian epithelial cancer, which is the most common form of malignancy affecting the ovaries. PPC acts and appears like ovarian cancer, mainly because the surface of the ovaries consists of epithelial cells, as is the peritoneum. Therefore, peritoneal carcinoma and some ovarian cancers share similar symptoms.

What are the Symptoms of Peritoneal Cancer?

The warning signs of peritoneal cancer often include:

  • Abdominal pain or discomfort due to:
    • Gas
    • Pressure
    • Indigestion
    • Swelling
    • Bloating
    • Cramps
  • A constant feeling of fullness, even before eating
  • Nausea
  • Diarrhea or constipation
  • Increased urgency to urinate
  • Loss of appetite
  • Unexplained weight loss or gain
  • Rectal bleeding
  • Irregular vaginal bleeding
  • Shortness of breath

If these signs and symptoms are frequent, persistent, and new to you — seek immediate medical attention.

What are the Causes of Peritoneal Cancer?

The exact cause of primary peritoneal carcinoma is unknown. However, it is crucial for women to know that primary peritoneal cancer can still develop even if the ovaries have been removed.

The risk factors for peritoneal cancer are:

  • Increasing age
  • Being a woman
  • Women with risk factors for ovarian cancer
  • Having the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genetic mutations

To curb the onset or recurrence of primary peritoneal cancer, discuss preventive strategies with your doctor.

Tests for Peritoneal Cancer in Women

Early detection is an important factor in improving your peritoneal cancer prognosis. In addition to asking about your signs and symptoms, a doctor will review your medical history and conduct a physical exam. The goal is to search for abnormalities in the following areas:

  • Ovaries
  • Fallopian tubes
  • Uterus
  • Vagina
  • Colon and rectum
  • Stomach
  • Bladder

After which, a doctor may use these tests and procedures to make an accurate peritoneal cancer diagnosis:

  • Ultrasound
  • CA-125 blood test
  • Computed axial tomography (CT) scans
  • Lower GI series or barium enema
  • Upper GI series
  • Paracentesis
  • Laparotomy
  • Removal of a sample tissue for testing (biopsy)

FAQs

1. How will New Hope Unlimited customize my treatment?

The type of treatment you receive depends upon:
  • The stage and grade of the cancer
  • The size and location of the cancer
  • Your age and overall health

2. Is peritoneal cancer and stomach cancer the same?

Primary peritoneal cancer is not the same as gastrointestinal or stomach cancer. It also differs from cancers that metastasize (spread) to the peritoneum. PPC begins in the peritoneum, hence the term primary peritoneal cancer.
