Peritoneal surface malignancies are cancers that grow or spread along the peritoneal surfaces, the tissues inside the abdomen. In the past, someone diagnosed with these challenging cancers had a very poor prognosis, but many of our patients now live full, active lives after treatment. Often, the disease is even curable.
We welcome the chance to help you with an initial diagnosis or offer a second opinion.
